    It seems so incredibly difficult to gain a place as a Trainee Biomedical Scientist to actually start an IBMS portfolio to get HCPC registration. I have honestly applied to 50+ posts (including MLA and Biomed Suppor Worker roles - admittedly quite far from my residence) with little success.
    Is there any way for me to do my portfolio (even if it's unpaid) without being officially 'employed' by a trust? Would I be able to contact individual labs and ask if they are happy to mentor etc (Is this a likely scenario? Say if I'm prepared to pay for the portfolio etc myself?)

    No you need to get in. MLA jobs are a route in. York recently hired x2 Trainee Biomedical Scientist's. Have a look at Blood Science's they're often struggling for staff, microbiology is more competitive.
