Are you thinking about a career within the NHS?

Here at University Hospitals Birmingham (UHB) NHS Foundation Trust we want to have a talented and diverse workforce which reflects the community we serve. This website covers the four sites within UHB - Heartlands, Good Hope, Solihull and Queen Elizabeth Hospitals.  We also facilitate placements within Solihull community.  

We encourage and support applications from the widest range of backgrounds to ensure we have the right people in the right jobs. We believe work experience is the single best activity that you can do to help you prepare for a career within healthcare. It will give you valuable experience within a vibrant healthcare environment and will assist you when applying for university and future jobs.

Work experience is a fantastic way to gain an insight into the wider range of career opportunities. It will help build your confidence and give you an understanding of the required attitudes, behaviours and values that are expected in a healthcare setting. This experience will help you to make an informed choice on your future career options.

In 2018 UHB offered 783 work experience placements over the four main sites across a range of different departments. Currently we attract in excess of over 200 applications per month.

We already has strong links with its local schools and we run a number of programmes throughout the academic school year tailored to years 10 & 11 and we are eager to broaden our links across the local community.
