Our work experience programme aims to give individuals the chance to develop their skills and experience in a healthcare setting, supporting them to apply this experience and begin their career in the NHS.

Completing work experience with us is a great opportunity to get a feel for working in the NHS, and find out more about the career path you are interested in, to make sure it is right for you.

Completing your application 
If you wish to complete work experience at the Trust, you will first need to complete an application form. This application is your opportunity to show us how work experience will help you to progress into a new or desired career path. This application will also allow the Trust to conduct the required checks prior to you commencing your work experience.

Please make sure you complete all required fields or we will not be able to process your application.
If you require any further information about your application for work experience, please do not hesitate to contact the Talent for Care Team by email at talent.forcare@nwbh.nhs.uk

If you are under the age of 18 and would like to be accepted for the work experience programme, we will need full consent from your parent or guardian. This consent will be requested when your application has been received.

If you are aged 18 or above, you must have an up to date DBS certificate in place (This DBS will need to be taken out as part of the DBS update service. The Trust cannot accept DBS certificates that have been applied for by another organisation), prior to undertaking a work placement. This DBS will form part of the application and identification check process by North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.
