Work Placements in Yorkshire and The Humber (Finance, Informatics and Procurement)

Are you considering a career in the NHS? If so an undergraduate year with us will give you a chance to find out what it’s like, put theory into practice, get great experience to add to your CV, sample the considerable development opportunities on offer and make a difference in areas that support the delivery of patient services.

So if you’ve ever wondered how much an operation costs, how the NHS finds the money to build a new hospital, why we have waiting lists or how much it costs to keep an ambulance on the road and you eventually want to qualify as an accountant - perhaps a year in Finance would be ideal for you?

If your passion is information and how it can benefit patient care, we have one year opportunities in Informatics departments around the county.

Alternatively you may be interested in the increasingly high profile area of Procurement, its new technologies and the huge impact it’s going to have on patient care.
We are seeking undergraduates to join us who:

  • Have good communication skills
  • Have an eye for detail and accuracy
  • Can work flexibly as a member of a team
  • Are good at planning and organising
  • Demonstrate an interest in your chosen area
  • Can assimilate complex information
  • Have ambition and are highly motivated

Work placements will be for a 12 month period commencing between July and September 2017.  These positions have a salary of around £16k p.a. depending on location. 

Experience gained throughout the placement period will add towards CIMA’s, CIPFA’s and ACCA’s practical experience requirements.

Closing date for applications is 31st January 2017
