Work experience

We currently remain closed to School and College learners while we develop our new Work Experience offer.

We would like to continue to direct you to South Yorkshire Regional Education and Careers (SYREC) that have lots of virtual and some attendance work experience that can be used for reflections when applying for College or University courses.

We will be updating our webpages when this situation changes, so please keep an eye on this page for updates.

Thank you again for your interest in NHS careers. You will also find other work related experiences and apprenticeship recruitment information:

Work experience for 16 – 19 year olds

We accept applications for work experience from young people who live in Sheffield and/or attend school/college within the region. We also welcome young people not in education and employment. Applications outside of these boundaries may also be considered.

Places are limited and on a first come, first serve basis. The application window may close earlier once all places have been allocated.

Application process

Paperwork should be submitted in Word or PDF format. Photographs of paperwork will not be accepted. Please complete all sections clearly stating which dates you are able to complete your work experience.

Once your application has been submitted, you will receive a receipt email from the work placements inbox and your details added to our records. Due to the high volume of applications we receive, please allow up to 15 working days for this.

You will be notified whether you have been successful in your placement with your allocated department and dates. Once this has been confirmed, a number of checks will need to be completed. This can take up to 8 weeks. Therefore please do apply at least 2 months before your desired start date.

If you have had direct conversations with a member of the trust, this will be treated as a request at this stage and can only be processed by submitting an application form to the Work Experience team.

Application schedule

Our Work Experience remains suspended until further notice, we will update this page with any changes in the near future.

Please see our Frequently Asked Questions for further information.
