Finding a work experience placement can often be a daunting task, and it’s even harder to find a placement that really fulfils your expectations.
At Compton Care, we’re committed to offering you the chance to find out what it’s really like to work here with our structured 1 week work experience program.
We’re passionate about communicating the work that we do to care for and support people affected by complex and life limiting illnesses, in your local community. We find that our work experience program is a great way to dispel the myths surrounding hospice care, as well as providing you with the opportunity to build on your employability skills, and perhaps find your perfect career path!
With our structured program, you’ll visit a range of different departments, learning how each one works together to ensure that Compton Care continues to provide amazing care and support to our service users.
From meeting with our fundraising and PR departments to spending some time in our day centre, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in activities with both our staff and our patients. You’ll learn more about palliative care, how our charity is run and how we go about organising our events, there might also be the chance to pitch your own fundraising event to our team of Compton dragons.
Choosing Compton Hospice for your work experience placements is a great way to add essential employability skills to your CV. From working across numerous departments you’ll gain invaluable communications skills, will practise your ability to work in a team to complete activities and will have lots of opportunities to get creative and share your ideas.
We can currently accommodate between two and four work experience students during our dedicated work experience week in July. If you’re currently studying for your GCSE’s or A Levels and are considering a career in healthcare, marketing or fundraising, or, you have an interest in how Compton works, we want to hear from you!
If you’re aged between 15 and 18 and are interested in joining our program, you can register your interest by filling in our work experience application form, no later than the end of April. Successful applicants will then be invited to our site to attend interviews before the final students are chosen.
