Apply for Work Experience

Here you will find information about work experience and access to apply for placements.

Get Started

The Nottinghamshire Work Experience Hub provides a centralised process for those seeking work experience placements in the health and social care sectors.

This is a perfect opportunity for anyone thinking about a career in Health or Social Care to try a work experience placement at an acute hospital, in a mental health Trust or in a placement in our community services. Our Work Experience Hub offers a variety of work experience placements.

The Nottinghamshire Work Experience Hub is available to everyone, whether you are at school thinking about your future career, people taking career breaks and wanting a change of direction or people wanting to try something completely different.

Working in the NHS and social care is an extremely rewarding career and offers an experience like nowhere else. Every role, whether it is clinical or non-clinical plays a vital role in making a difference to patients, service users and families and carers. You will learn a lot about yourself as well as developing professionally.

Please note that, due to the demand for placements and the limited number of available work experience placements, placements are restricted to Nottinghamshire residents only.

Advice for Students

We are starting to increase our offer of work experience placements again after the pandemic. Please also look at our online work-related learning alternatives.

For students applying to university

Universities understand that it may still be difficult to obtain work experience placements. They will expect to see in your personal statement that you have researched the different areas available in your field of study e.g. adults, paediatrics, older people.
