West London College students find out about opportunities working for the NHS

A manager from the North West London Integrated Care Board (ICB) has visited West London College to talk to students about working for the NHS.

Melanie Smith who works for the diagnostics team at the ICB revealed details of NHS opportunities to Multiply maths students and local people looking for a career change at the employment event.

Ms Smith spoke about jobs available in three new Diagnostic Centres, as well as careers in local hospitals. One of the Diagnostic Centres, based in Willesden, is already open and the others will open in Wembley and Ealing from December 2023.

Ms Smith said: “Most people don’t realise that the NHS is their biggest local employer offering over 350 different job roles, from patient facing jobs, such as a hospital porter and healthcare worker, to support roles which are non-patient facing like IT, catering and cleaning professionals. We have great entry level roles with learning and development opportunities through apprenticeships.”

According to West London College, the Multiply maths courses are open to adults who do not already have GCSE Maths at Grade C or equivalent and are free.

Sue Jenkins, West London College’s Multiply Maths Manager who organised the employment event said: “At this time of year, our Multiply maths students are work-ready for a whole range of roles from security guards to receptionists to baristas and more, so this was an ideal time to invite Melanie to meet them and help them into meaningful and important jobs.”
