Work Experience

Please note: Your safety, and that of our staff and patients is crucially important to us.

Therefore we are currently offering work experience only to those aged 18 + and double vaccinated against Covid-19. We understand that this is an extremely difficult time for students to obtain practical work experience and are committed to regularly reviewing this position with a view to widening access at the earliest opportunity.


Croydon Health Services NHS Trust is committed to offering individuals an introduction to work and opportunities to explore what a job in the NHS is really like.  You might be looking to gain work experience to complement your studies, or to support your entry or return to work after a break.


Having the opportunity to observe healthcare professionals can help to confirm a career choice, or lead you to explore other options.  This is often an advantage when applying for jobs or further education.


To be eligible, applicants should be aged 18 years and older, double vaccinated, and either resident in, or studying in Croydon.  For those who are younger please register your interest with us so that we can contact you when we’re able to extend the programme to other age groups.


Work experience is offered for a maximum of 5 consecutive days.  It is offered throughout the year and is dependent on managers and their teams being able to provide supervision and support.
