Work experience

Experience working life at Addenbrooke's

CUH is passionate about equipping young people with valuable careers guidance and expanding access to healthcare career opportunities. Our aim is to help develop skills, confidence, awareness and an understanding of the world of work, especially for students aged 14 - 19 years.

Please note: to support our local community, priority for placements will be given to students who live and study within the Trust’s main catchment area as we have limited places and numerous requests.
