Our work experience programme aims to give people the chance to develop their skills and experience in a healthcare setting to support them to apply for health and social care qualifications 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're interested in to make sure it's right for you.

Finding a placement
If you'd like to be considered for our work experience programme, you will first need to contact the department or service you'd like to work within directly to request a placement with them. As part of this, you will need to confirm the name of the person who will be your supervisor during your placement. Your supervisor could be any member of staff working in the service as long as their line manager agrees with this.

We can't guarantee you'll be offered a placement in your first choice of department or service so if you aren't successful with the first service you contact, try contacting different services across the Trust that you're interested in. You can view the services we provide in each borough and how to contact them under the 'our services' tab on our website.

Completing your application 
Once you've confirmed a placement with the department and agreed a supervisor, the next step is to complete a work experience application form and submit it to our People Services Team by email at hrservice.adminteam@nwbh.nhs.uk.

Please make sure you complete all required fields or we won't be able to process your application. You will also need to add the name of your nominated supervisor to the comments section of the application form under 'placement type'. Once you've submitted the form, your application will be processed.

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.

For more information about our work experience programme, please contact our People Services Team on 01925 664 483 or by email at hrservice.adminteam@nwbh.nhs.uk.
