Can I work for the NHS?

Yes. In addition to nutritionists and dieticians, the NHS employs a range of health professionals that provide nutrition advice including health trainers, dietetic assistant practitioners and community food workers. You can search for jobs on the NHS jobs website using ‘nutrition’ as a keyword. Tip: ensure that you tick the box to search the whole advert rather than the advert title.
