NORTH BRISTOL NHS TRUST EXTENDS WORK EXPERIENCE MONTH!
CAREERS EVENING: Monday 12th November;
5:30 – 8:00pm; Southmead Hospital
5th. November 2018
To avoid clashing with the region-wide 3-college careers fair “Ambitions 2018” taking place in Bristol in October, North Bristol NHS Trust decided to extend its Work Experience Month into November! It will be staging its next Careers Evening next Monday (12th), building on the terrific success of the Trust’s last event of this type. Do go along if you feel it could be of value; perhaps even more important is to ensure that any school, college or other organisation that you feel might benefit is aware of the event.
The Trust is making significant progress in streamlining its processes and its co-ordination with schools and colleges to make all forms of work experience it offers not just of high quality and of real value to the participant, but extremely efficiently set up and run too. The benefits that are quickly becoming clear include not over-stretching the departments that are already committed to providing placement opportunities by being able to build new relationships and expand into new areas. Importantly, that includes being able to attract students into experiencing Health Science.
The Careers Evening next Monday is a fantastic opportunity for people to find out about the wide variety of careers in the NHS, the training and education opportunities offered to support these careers and the work experience opportunities available to give a taste of them. With a determination to represent as many of the 350+ career options as possible, the Trust will have experts from a range of areas on hand, along with interactive activities and guidance on how to apply for jobs.
Signed up so far are: Medicine (junior doctors); Nursing (various areas); Midwifery; Science (labs, research, prosthetics, neurosciences); Therapies (physio, occupational therapy); Allied Health; Dietetics; Pharmacy; Corporate (Finance, IT, Sustainability, Library Services); Education and Training (apprenticeships, traineeships, career development opportunities); and the Employment Services and Volunteering team on hand to advise how to get jobs and volunteering roles. And there’ll be more still!
Do please pass on this information and the attached flyer to anyone who might be interested.
