    I heard that there is a higher chance of easily getting a job at the end of the Uni course for Radiographer and that there is a shortage in the country. Are there any other jobs that are like this?

    Radiography is near enough a 100% chance and funded at the moment but that might change.

    Most NHS jobs offer a big chance of employment like nursing, paramedic, social worker. A good one to do is ODP (operating department practioner) its only a 2 year course and you start on £22k.

    I meant outside the NHS or Medicine. Just anything that has that kind of of guarantee that you'll have a job or opportunity and that is in demand.

    Outside of Nursing and Medicine there really isn't anything that will guarentee you a job, so much is down to you.

    A career at sea, i know it isnt for everyone but its paid training and near enough a guaranteed job. I did this and still work at sea.

    It isn't royal navy or anything strict like that and your not tied in for any lenght of time. Its working on merchant ships like ferries, tankers, cruise ships etc.

    3 years training and normally a job at the end. I work 4 weeks on 4 weeks off so you get quite a bit of time at home.

    There are no guarantees outside of the aforementioned NHS careers. Industry jobs (and public sector jobs) are competitive (sometimes fiercely competitive) such that you'll need to build up the right skills, experiences and traits required to pass through the recruitment processes. The best way to do this is to make the most of your time at uni.

    I'd maybe not look for guarantees and start deliberating over where your interests lie and how that meshes with what you're good it. Do some research online to find out industries/careers where you could see yourself then make an action plan towards getting there.

    The only reason NHS careers have that graduate job guarantee is because they are extremely competitive courses to get onto.
