Work Experience

Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is proud to host The Work Experience Hub for Nottinghamshire which provides a centralised process for those seeking work experience placements in the health and social care sectors.

We are not accepting any applications for work experience.

All work experience placements have been suspended until further notice due to Covid-19 (coronavirus), to prioritise the health of our patients, staff and visitors.

Those applicants who have been offered a placement, which has been cancelled, will be placed on a waiting list and as soon as normal service is resumed we’ll contact the applicants to arrange an alternative date for the placement and the induction.

Applicants who submitted an application before 17/3/20, but have not been notified if they have been successful or not, will have their applications logged and processed once normal service is resumed.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding.
