Benefits of work experience

In view of the current Public Health England information about Coronavirus/COVID-19 and the emerging situation day-to-day, we have taken the regrettable decision to postpone all work experience placements for the foreseeable future.

There are many benefits to work experience at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust. These include:

  • Building your awareness of our Trust as both an employer and a working culture
  • Broadening your awareness of the numerous careers available within the NHS
  • Developing your understanding of your chosen career
  • Gaining transferable skills, such as communicating with others, that you can use within a wide range of job roles
  • Experiencing how working roles within the NHS are often much more complex than those portrayed on television
  • Strengthening your college, university or job applications by allowing you to discuss your experiences on application forms and at interview
