An exciting opportunity has arisen to apply for a position on our all new Student Bank. We have designed the Student Bank to support Students through the banding system which will enable them to access a wider variety of bank assignments and as such enhance their experiences, skill and knowledge base in preparation for qualification.

It will also provide an opportunity to determine which service you may wish to begin your professional career in.

It is therefore important you outline this clearly in your application. Exact pay point will be advised following interview and will be commensurate with experience and skills.

We have a designated team of Clinicians to initiate this process and support all student bank workers in the clinical environment.
