Work Experience

With over 1.3 million employees and more than 350 different careers on offer, there is a job for you in Health & Care no matter what your interests, skills or qualifications. Work experience can be a fantastic way to gain insight into a particular career. It can also be a valuable way of getting some confidence and experience of working in a large organisation.

What kind of placements are on offer?

We offer Clinical and Non Clinical Work Experience placements. The placement’s areas/departments can be found in the Work Experience Directory.

BeFunky Collage

Please note:
Placements for students differ in each ward, department or area of placement. The main aim of work shadowing (for clinical placements) will be confined to observation only. Under NO circumstances will students be permitted to take an active part in any situation relating to patient care.

Health and Social Care placements

Work experience placements in health and social care are also occasionally available with our colleagues in Cornwall Council. Placements available can be found on the Council’s work experience web page.
