Graduate Digital, Data and Technology (DDaT) Scheme now recruiting in Social Care

Graduate Digital, Data and Technology (DDaT) Scheme now recruiting in Social Care

During the pandemic, we have seen a rapid uptake of digital and technological solutions within health and social care services, as well as an increase in people working outside their usual environments. With this increased reliance on digital solutions and off-site working, it is more vital than ever that health and social care organisations have strong Cyber Security, Informatics and IT teams to keep organisations, patients and residents safe.

The Graduate Digital, Data and Technology (DDaT) Scheme, funded by Health Education England, is now the leader in recruiting and training junior staff for digital projects such as EPIC Apollo, HIVE and MY CARE Electronic Patient Records systems as well as ‘Business as Usual’ Cyber, IT and Digital functions.

The DDaT Scheme, with a 93% retention rate, is now actively recruiting in Social Care settings that require digital, data and technology roles to support their work in Information Governance, GDPR, remote health monitoring, Cyber security and more.

They are actively working across Integrated Care Systems with their digital programme and are keen to recruit to Social Care settings in order to bring the sector to the table and bridge the gap between health and social care.

The Digital, Data and Technology Scheme assess over 5,000 candidates a year to recruit and train talented graduates into technical specialists that will deliver much needed digital solutions for your organisation. Since its inception, the scheme has placed Data Analysts, Data Scientists, Software Developers, Cyber Security, Project Manager and Business Analysts into 100’s of vacancies across Trusts, ICSs, CCGs, LAs and the health and social care system across England.

We want to bring this success to social care, bringing in talented junior staff to support organisations that need to rapidly develop their digital capabilities. Whatever your need, it would be great to hear from you, so please do get in touch with your regional engagement lead whose details as well as information about our monthly information webinar, can be found on our website here.
