Did you know there are over 300 different careers in the National Health Service? You could be an ambulance driver, tutor, chef, dietitian, cleaner, secretary, IT engineer, Manager, occupational therapist, or maybe a Chief Executive!

The NHS is the biggest employer in Britain and all these jobs need to be filled; why not by you?

Work experience will show you how Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT) really works and is a fantastic way to gain insight into a particular career. It can also be a valuable way of getting some confidence and experience of caring for people.

Work experience can help you choose the right career.

Some of our jobs are ‘clinical’, which means directly related to patients and their treatment – such as nursing, pharmacy or physiotherapy – and some are ‘non-clinical’, such as I.T or office work. Work experience is useful for whole range of career pathways, and it is still valuable to get non-clinical work experience even if you hope to end up in a clinical career.

Work experience is a great way of seeing what it’s like working in LPT and showing your commitment to your future career with us. We will also show you what opportunities are available as a valued, future member of our team.

Our local universities Leicester and De-Montfort view work experience as an advantage to an applicant applying for health related courses.
