FY1 jobs

I'm a final year medical student in Prague, about to graduate in a few months (if everything goes well). I wasn't planning on applying to UK for foundation year training, but this year, I have been thinking more about it. As of now, I'm planning on doing a clinical attachment in UK after graduation. At the moment, I can admit that I don't really have much experience in teaching or research, or even leadership positions. I do have some experience in volunteering for a few teaching workshops and some private tutoring for junior medical students, however it's not a lot compared to my peers. All I have is some internship experience in various hospitals in Prague and a scholarship that I received in my 5th year of studies. I may receive another one this year, if everything goes well. I know I don't have an impressive CV as some of my peers do. Will a clinical attachment or attachments in UK really help me in finding a FY1 job? I've been very exhausted thinking and overthinking everything. I feel like I won't really get a job anyway, and it's quite a depressing thought. Some help would be appreciated. Sorry for the long post :frown:

Maybe an option for next year but all placements for F1 have been filled for this year. That will give you time to see if there any placements available?

Thank you for the response! I do know I can't get into 2024 placements. Would you mind telling me when exactly the jobs for 2025 will start being posted on NHS websites? Like from which month onwards?
