Careers in Finance in the NHS

Every year NHS organisations across the country offer one year work placements to year 2 university students.

Through the Skills Development Network, placements are available in NHS Finance, Procurement or Informatics departments.

Typically placement students get to undertake a variety of duties in their chosen department – it’s an opportunity to put the theory you’re learning at uni into practice in a real world environment. NHS departments tend to be busy and fast moving and you’ll get a glimpse of what life is like in the NHS. Many of our undergraduate placement students return to the NHS after graduation or apply to the NHS Graduate Trainee Scheme.
