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. Applicants will be required to take a lateral flow test before and during the placement. For some placements, applicants will be required to be vaccinated against Covid-19. Please check the criteria/restrictions for each placement
