At Leicester's Hospitals we aim to offer a variety of work experience in both clinical and non-clinical careers.
Work experience can take many forms and is typically known as an opportunity to spend a period of time outside the classroom, learning about a particular job or area of work
With more people in England work for the NHS than any other organisation work experience is a brilliant opportunity to see what roles there are from administration and clerical staff, housekeeping staff, professional plumber and engineers, data analysts, managers, project leads, scientists, dieticians, audiologists, nurses and doctors to name but a few. There are over 350 different careers in the NHS, each with a vital role to play in delivering a health service to our patients.
Leicester's Hospitals offer a range of different work experience placements through the health and social care Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland programme. Please access details here: https://leicspart.software.uk.com/?page=home.php
