Work experience

‘Not Just for Doctors and Nurses’

Work experience at NUH is an excellent opportunity to see what it is like to work in the NHS, and in an environment that you may not have had experience in before. You will be supervised by staff who already complete the type of work you are interested in, in the area you are visiting.

Work experience can vary from ‘tasters’ lasting just half a day to small group sessions visiting a number of specialties over a period of time, through to individual programmes over one or two weeks or more. Whilst some work experience placements offer a hands-on experience, others provide insights, observation and work shadowing.

All work experience placements at NUH are arranged and co-ordinated centrally by Health Education England (HEE). Anyone interested in a work experience placement can apply via the HEE website.

All applications received are reviewed and a matching process with the opportunities available is completed. If there is not a suitable placement you will be added to our waiting list for any opportunities that are available in the near future.
