Joined up Careers Derbyshire is pleased to announce that a new health and social care work experience directory has been launched.

The directory – available on this website - aims to improve, modernise and widen pre-employment opportunities for careers in health and social care.  

The single point of access for work experience placements across Derbyshire health and social care organisations will enable a more equitable and accessible approach to inspiring people to get the skills they need for a better future in real world experiences. This collaborative approach will improve access to opportunities aimed at widening the talent pool, helping attract a diverse future workforce across all of our organisations, including the private, voluntary and independent sector.

Joined up Careers works closely with local schools, colleges, education providers and community groups and will be promoting the new directory which provides users with a harmonised, simplified and equitable opportunity to accessing placements.

Individuals can apply for placements via the directory although the local arrangements for shortlisting and confirming placements will remain as per the usual arrangements within each organisation. 

For further information on uploading placement opportunities to the directory, please email dhcft.joinedupcareers@nhs.net.
