Work experience

Work experience in the NHS is a fantastic way to gain insight into a particular career. It can also be a valuable way of getting some confidence and experience of working in a team and caring for people. Whether it is a short or long-term placement, full or part time, or on a structured or informal basis, work experience can help you choose the right career.

At UHBW we aim to offer a variety of work experience placements in both clinical and non-clinical areas.  A work experience placement is your opportunity to spend a period of time outside the classroom, learning about a particular job or area of work. 

More people in England work for the NHS than any other organisation.  This doesn't mean just doctors and nurses- it means healthcare assistants, business managers, clerical staff, cleaning operatives, chefs, laboratory technicians, engineers . . . in fact there are more than 350 different careers, each with a vital role to play in delivering a first class health service. 

While the NHS is tackling COVID-19, you might find that work experience programmes and placements aren't available, especially in clinical settings.
