Work experience application form

Eligibility

We offer work experience placements for school and college students over the age of 16 and members of the public who may be seeking a change in their career.

Due to a high demand in work experience placement requests, unless already arranged, we can only consider applicants that live in Sussex. Applications outside of this criteria will not be processed.

If you are considering a career in medicine and wish to be placed with a doctor, please tell us about your career aspirations in the free text box on the application form.

Due to the demand for work experience we are not always able to accommodate all requests. Please consider requesting a placement time outside of school holiday periods as these tend to be the peak times for applications.

Process

Please ensure you read the full application process guidance before applying.

Applicants will be subject to a health clearance and risk assessment, which can take up to 3 weeks. Placement length will vary according to the placement area but will not exceed two weeks.

All placements are unpaid and the Trust will not meet any costs of travel, subsistence or accommodation.
