Work experience

Work experience applications for this summer closed in March this year and we are not accepting any more applications for 2018.


More people in England work for the NHS than any other organisation. City by city, region by region, NHS trusts will always be among the largest local employers.

For young people who are thinking about a career as a healthcare professional a work experience placement within the NHS, like Croydon Health Services, can offer the opportunity to see what a job in the NHS is really like.

Croydon Health Services offers week-long work experience opportunities in admin and clinical areas during the month of July every year.

Work experience may confirm a career choice, or lead you to pursue an option you had not previously considered and is often an advantage when applying for jobs or higher education courses. 

We offer a limited number of work experience placements to participants aged 16 – 19 years, resident and/or in schools in the London Borough of Croydon, for a maximum of a one week block in July each year, with no availability for long term opportunities. Work experience is for observation purposes only.
