Start your journey with the NHS Futures team whose mission is: To provide local people, whatever their age or circumstance, the opportunity to discover and explore the multitude and diversity of roles within our organisation; inspiring them to choose a career within the NHS.
At The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust we are committed attracting, retaining and developing our staff, and improving employee engagement. We employ over 10,000 people, which makes us the largest single employer in Wolverhampton.
The Trust recognises that work experience is a way of drawing in our future clinical and non-clinical staff. Work experience offers a great opportunity to sample a career in the NHS. We work with a wide range of people in schools, academies, colleges Princes Trust and other organisations across the local area aiming to widen our talent pipeline.
More than 60% of our staff live in Wolverhampton and we recognise the benefits of employing local people in local jobs.
With high numbers of young unemployed people and difficulties in recruiting to some roles within the NHS, the NHS Futures Team’s aim is to support local people to explore careers and discover the diversity of roles within our organisation; inspiring them to choose a career within the NHS.
The experience of a working environment can prove valuable in shaping your long-term future. University courses/job vacancies are increasingly difficult to apply for and many employers now require work experience for a stronger application.
The aim of work experience is to provide the participant with an opportunity to gain experience of working in a healthcare setting, providing an introduction to the world of work, including working conditions and attendance management.
