Following a two-year pause during the pandemic, we are delighted that NCH&C is once again able to offer work experience placements to students, jobseekers, and anyone keen to find out more about working in community health and care in Norfolk.

The application process for our work experience placements is open from today for the next two weeks.

To register your interest, complete this online form, answering all the questions in as much detail as you can.

NCH&C’s Talent for Care team will then get in touch to arrange a work experience placement that suits your requirements and preferences. These placements will take place from Spring 2023.

Please note that this form will close on Sunday 11 December. We unfortunately cannot accept applications all year round due to the work required to fulfil placements.

Work experience is a valuable opportunity for individuals who want to try working in a particular field, before committing to a career change or course of study. This is particularly important in the healthcare sector, where we rely on steady stream of individuals into our workforce.

Carolyn Fowler, Director of Nursing & Quality, shared her support for the return of work experience to NCH&C:

“Hosting work experience placements is a vital recruitment opportunity for the NHS, so we are pleased to open our doors to work experience candidates once again. This is a chance for us to highlight why working in a community trust is so amazing, and to support the next generation of NHS staff.

“Teams tell us that hosting a work experience candidate is a rewarding experience for all involved. Welcoming in someone new brings a fresh pair of eyes and fresh ideas – our work experience candidates are an asset to the teams that receive them.”

Our placements are open to anyone who is over 14 years old (over 18 years old to work with children).  Existing NCH&C staff members and those outside the organisation are welcome to apply.

Please do share the work experience booking form with your colleagues, or any friends and family that may be interested in completing work experience at NCH&C.
