Work Experience

If you are a student at a local Gateshead school, or at college and are thinking of a career in the NHS, then the QE Gateshead Work Experience Project is for you!

Work experience placements are essential to young adults who would like to experience the world of work and gain information about a range of careers in order to make informed career choices.

Providing work experience placements enables the Trust to build invaluable links with the surrounding community through working with local educational establishments.  By providing work experience for 14 -19 year old students throughout the Trust, we hope that we will be viewed as an excellent employer for the future.

Work placements are offered in a number of different areas across the Trust.  In addition, medical, midwifery, nursing and physiotherapy shadowing placements are also available for those who wish to gain a broader understanding in these areas.  Some departments offer work experience placements on an ad-hoc basis and others have specific weeks when they offer their work experience programmes.

Applicants to the more popular programmes may be required to attend an informal interview and are required to attend an induction morning prior to the commencement of their placement (Placements can not go ahead if the applicant fails to attend)

The Work Experience application process for 2018 placements will open on 1st December 2017 and close on 31st January 2018. Applications received after the closing date will not be considered. We aim to notify all applicants of the outcome of their application by the end of February 2018.
