Work Experience

BMEC Staff

The Trust has always endeavoured to offer work experience opportunities to young people. Now we are pleased to announce that from July 2012 we will activate a new work experience policy which offers work experience placements and career taster sessions through schools, colleges and Job Centre Plus.

The scheme will be centrally administered, offering the most equitable possible access to opportunities. Additionally the scheme will be fully insured for the benefit and protection of both the candidate and the host.

The minimum age for participation is 14, although the lower age limit for access to clinical wards is 16. Certain activities like access to maternity wards, areas with radiological equipment or controlled medicines requires a minimum age of 18. There is no maximum age for inclusion on the work experience scheme.

Participation is not limited to clinical disciplines; work experience opportunities may also be available in administrative areas.

Students who want to visit BMEC for clinical work experience, please contact Nicola Smith (nicola.smith16@nhs.net) or write to Sandwell & West Birmingham NHS Trust – Organisation Development and Learning, First Floor, Trinity House, Sandwell Hospital, Lyndon, West Bromwich, West Midlands, B71 4HJ with your CV and a covering letter written to the consultant.
