Hi!
I'm 17 and looking for a summer job at least but i wouldn't mind continuing it during my studies if need be. I want it to help my application for uni so it would be nice if it was related to healthcare or some sort. Any recommendations?

It might be difficult to find paid employment in healthcare whilst you're under 18. A lot of posts will require DBS checks and possibly vaccinations so that might delay your working if you only have time until September. I'd highly recommend voluntary roles in care homes, hospices, vaccination centres, hospitals, etc. Some of these might still be difficult due to COVID restrictions. A local pharmacy could be another possible avenue. I know you explicitly mentioned you'd be interested in roles directly related to healthcare, but any people-facing job will provide you with many transferable skills. Volunteering in a school/ nursery (although this wouldn't be possible over your summer holidays) is an excellent piece of experience because you would be working closely with vulnerable people which is a large element of healthcare jobs.

Hope this helps
