Changes of the health system reform strongly influenced the job market in the field of health care. On one hand the new market mechanisms may eliminate people who are not qualified enough but on the other hand the important question may arise: what does it mean for the employer: a “qualified, competent and skilled employee” ? and another one: “how to educate and train them to satisfy the employer” ? In this paper we describe the part of the Leonardo project focused on the researche aimed on perspectives of the Public Health graduates employment increase. In this light there was conducted a competences and skills researche including the folloving elements: 1) the elaboration of the list of competences (this part of the researche was conducted by the three projects partners independently to some point and then the common list was prepared), 2) veryfication of the competences list by the participant of focus groups in Poland and England, 3) collecting the results and elaboration of the final list - the questionnaire for the future employers assesment.
