NHS Finance - Work placement opportunity

The NHS Finance Insights Placement Scheme offers paid work experience in NHS organisations throughout England to individuals aged 18 and above, who do not plan to attend university and come from lower socio-economic backgrounds.

The scheme provides a 12-month experience in an entry-level (band 2) finance role, allowing candidates to develop new skills and gain on-the-job work experience. Upon completion of the placement, each candidate should feel well-prepared to apply for NHS opportunities, including apprenticeships or other entry-level roles, and be confident in transitioning to professional working environments.

Entry requirements:

The initiative aims to support Year 13 young people aged 18+ from low-income families, and applicants interested must meet the following criteria:

  • Attending state school or college, minimum Grade C / 4 in GCSE Maths is desirable but not essential, and

  • Not planning on attending university, and

  • The occupation of your main household earner is categorised as a lower socio-economic background, or

  • Have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the previous six years.

Key Information:


Additionally, One NHS Finance has organised a national webinar for students, parents, and colleges to get a comprehensive overview of the scheme.
