BCHFT Careers – Work Experience

BCHFT Careers iconOur dedicated work experience page will provide you will all the advice and information you need relating to placement opportunities available at Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

What kind of placements do we have available?

Our placements are pre planned with teams, you can find the list of available placements on the calendar at the bottom of this page. This will outline what placements are still available for you to apply to. There is a mix of both clinical and non-clinical opportunities across the Trust, ranging from insight days to 5-day block placements.

Where do the placements take place?

Most of our placements are within the boroughs of Halton or Warrington, they will be within local health centres or clinics or in one of our corporate offices.

Who can apply for Work Experience placements?

Within Bridgewater you must be 16 or over to complete clinical work experience, due to the nature of the work. However, our non-clinical opportunities are open to anyone aged 14 or over.

What to do when you preferred placement is unavailable?

Placement availability will be updated regularly, so please check back as availability may change if someone withdraws or new opportunities become available.

How do I apply for a Work Experience placement?

At the bottom of this page is a link to our Microsoft Form which once submitted will come directly to the Careers and Apprenticeship Team for consideration.

Please ensure all fields on the form are completed, we expect applications to be clear and clearly demonstrate why you are interested in undertaking the placement you are applying for.

It is likely we will receive more than one application for each placement so consider how to make yours stand out, in the same way you might if you were applying for a job opportunity. Take some time to explore our website and read about us as an organisation and the area of interest.


Interested?  Follow these simple steps…

  1. View our Autumn placements in our Bridgewater Placement Calendar.
  2. Take some time, if you have not already done so, to do little research about our organisation and the placement area to help you make an application that stands out and demonstrates why you think you would benefit from the opportunity.

If for any reason you have difficulty or need some additional support to access or complete the online form, our careers team are on hand to help (view our contact us page) and can provide alternative means of application such as telephone or video call if needed.
