Work experience

Are you interested in a career in mental health and / or learning disabilities?

If so, a work experience placement or virtual taster session will give you the opportunity to gain valuable insights into the different roles available at NSFT.

We are offering various work experience opportunities in clinical and non-clinical settings.

Our work experience placements and virtual taster sessions are suitable for a wide age range.

Our face to face placements are age specific, over 14 years of age and above for non-clinical and 17 years of age and above for clinical opportunities.

Work experience options

Where possible we will try to arrange a 'face to face placement' with a team that compliments your work experience application and requested dates.

We also offer an after school 1 hour virtual 'taster session' (once a month from 4pm to 5pm). The taster session will include an introduction to NSFT, an overview of career options, interview insights and an opportunity to meet some of our staff.
