Our Work Experience Scheme

A week at Select Lifestyles is a truly great experience for students around the area. To date, we’ve had a number of different students from various different stages in their education join us for the week. 

Through our work experience scheme we have been able to created important links with both Sandwell College and Health Futures UTC. These links have allowed us to attract young talent in through our doors, and show them what it means to work in the healthcare industry before making the big decision of choosing their very own career paths. 

Students recommend work experience with us: ‘I have already told other people about this work experience and most definitely would encourage it, even to those who may not be interested in business.

It gives a really good overview on what is included on the corporate side of things and could allow for people to realise that they may actually like it. I would definitely recommend it to those who may be unsure as it is very informative. 

Keep it up! Best work experience placement I have ever had!’ Brithney, Sandwell College.

What to expect from your week with us:

Our training coordinator has put together a working week to give every student the chance to sample each department within our head office.

As a student, you will experience departments such as finance, HR and business development where you will be given real-life tasks to complete during your time with us. 

This is a great opportunity for students that maybe aren’t entirely sure which career they want to take forward after they leave education. 

Please refer to further down this page to view the template rota we use for our work experience students, to get an idea of what your week may look like ahead of your placement.

‘I’ve seen Brithney briefly today and she’s directed me to the blog on your website…I’ve had a look and she seems to have totally enjoyed her week with you. I’ve not seen a case where the student writes about their work experience on a company blog before and it is very impressive. I just wanted to say thank you for providing a comprehensive and meaningful placement for her.’
