Bank 

Joining the AWP Bank is a way of working with us without committing to regular working hours so you can fit your work around your family life or other commitments. We sometimes need people in our bank to provide short-term cover and reasons for this can include:

  • Staff sickness 
  • Holiday cover 
  • Someone leaving a permanent job and without an immediate replacement
  • Other reasons for absence, like maternity leave
  • Needing more staff than usual for a particular shift

As a bank worker, you will receive some of the same benefits that we offer permanent members of staff. We offer roles for a wide range of clinical and non-clinical work and specialties.

Work Experience 

We are committed to providing work experience opportunities that allow you to explore the different career paths we can offer and show you how you can make a positive difference to people in need of our services. Here at AWP we recognise that work experience placements can be a huge benefit both to you and us. 

You can carry out work experience if:

  • A ward manager or supervisor in the relevant department is available to fully supervise you during your time with us.
  • You are 16 years or over and working in an office environment, or 18 years and over on a ward or in a clinical setting.
  • We have carried out ID checks and referencing. We might need to complete further checks, depending on the location of your placement. Checks take a minimum of four weeks to complete.

There are a number of ways that you can access a Work Experience placement here at AWP; from national schemes organised by the NHS to organised student work experience placement schemes as part of a college or university course, with an agreed learning programme.  

We also welcome individual requests for work experience, or to ‘shadow’ (meaning you observe someone doing the job) for short periods of no more than two weeks. Longer term placements may be considered in some cases.

Armed Forces 

AWP proudly holds the title of a Veteran Aware Trust, recognised by the Veterans Covenant Healthcare Alliance (VCHA). Our commitment shines through in the following ways:

Equal Treatment: We ensure that the armed forces community receives fair and equal treatment, aligning with the NHS’s commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant.

Expertise in Veterans’ Services: Our staff in veterans’ services are not just knowledgeable; they are highly trained to understand and support the unique cultures and needs of veterans.

Empowering Awareness: We actively make veterans, reservists, and service families aware of the multitude of charities and NHS services available to them, covering everything from mental health support to assistance with financial claims.

But that’s not all! AWP, as a proud signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant, pledges to:

  • Friendly and Inclusive Environment: Actively promote ourselves as an armed forces-friendly organisation.
  • Champion Employment: Support the employment of veterans and go the extra mile to uplift the careers of service spouses and partners.
  • Reservist Support: Stand by our AWP staff who choose to be members of the reserve forces.
  • Community Engagement: Support local cadet units, whether they’re part of the community or found within local schools.
  • Celebrating Together: Take part with enthusiasm in the celebrations of Armed Forces Day

At AWP, our dedication is not just a commitment—it’s a celebration of the incredible contributions veterans, serving personnel, reservists, and military families make to their communities. We’re here to support, uplift, and actively engage in creating a positive impact together!
