PROSPECT programme

Are you unemployed, aged 16+ years, in receipt of benefits and looking for an opportunity to gain work experience within the NHS?

Would you like to take part in a 13 week work programme, committing to 30 hours per week over 4 days (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday)?

The Prospect Programme is an in-depth work experience programme offered by the Trust designed to provide skills and training to the unemployed helping to support people bridge gaps into paid work. The programme consists of a formal 3 week induction followed by 12 week’s on-the-job training; during which time candidates undertake real work scenarios. Placements are available in a variety of Trust job roles including health support, administration and support service positions.

The Prospect Programme has helped position over 200 volunteers into Trust placements. There is no guarantee of a job at the end of your placement but over 86% of volunteers completing the Programme have gone on to  successfully obtain permanent employment.

If you are interested in applying to the Prospect Programme please see below (when places become available). All applicants are required to undertake English and maths initial assessment and will be formally interviewed for suitability onto the Programme.
