Work experience at the RNOH


Welcome to the web page for Work Experience and thank you for your interest in the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust in Stanmore.

School / Further Education Students

Our work experience programme is an initiative for school students making decisions about future careers in the NHS and for further education options. Students must be at least 16 years old when they attend but in some areas the minimum age requirements are 17 or 18.

Due to demand, applications for placements in 2019 have now closed. Existing applications will be reviewed during May 2019 and all applicants will be contacted by the end of May with a decision. For those who have been unsuccessful, we will keep your details on file for 6 months in case there are any cancellations.

Confirmation of placements will be sent out during May and if you have not heard from us by 31st May then regrettably you have been unsuccessful. Please note, we only have a limited number of places available.

The application process for Work Experience placements in 2020 will open in April 2020. RNOH is a large organisation and Work Experience opportunities may be available in the following areas:

  • Corporate – Including Human Resources, Finance, Planning, General Administration
  • Clinical – Pathology, Physiotherapy, Psychology, Anaesthetics, Spinal, Joint Reconstruction, Shoulders and Elbow, Urology
  • Non-Clinical – Medical Administration
