Work experience

As one of the largest employers in the area, the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust acknowledges its social responsibility to engage with young people and students within the local community by offering work related learning opportunities.

We are committed to providing work experience placements for students to assist them in developing an understanding of working life in a health care setting.  If you are a student at a local school and thinking of a career in the NHS, then our work experience programme could be for you.  Having the chance to experience a working environment prior to making a career choice will prove very valuable in helping you plan your long-term future.
