Health & Care Career Expo

An exciting local career expo is set to welcome 2,000 students next week, as part of Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Integrated Care System (ICS)’s efforts to help local young people into careers in health and care.

Year 10 students from over 30 local schools will attend the event on 12 and 13 March at Kingsgate Conference Centre in Peterborough. At the expo, students will be able to speak to staff in dozens of different health and care roles, learn more about different career routes into the sector, and take part in brilliant interactive activities – from playing a life-size version of the classic game ‘Operation’ to experiencing a day in the life of a health and care worker through a virtual reality headset.

The day will be attended by well over a hundred health and care workers from a range of health and care backgrounds – from art therapists to dentists, and from social workers to paramedics. Plenty of people in non-patient facing roles will also be on hand to answer questions and explain different career paths within health and social care.

Claudia Iton, Chief People Officer at NHS Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, part of the ICS, said:

“We are thrilled to host this great expo, highlighting over 350 fulfilling careers in health and care.

“From midwives to maintenance workers and from physiotherapists to receptionists, every single person in the sector plays a vital role in helping us look after people. That’s why we’re excited to welcome thousands of young people to our expo next week, who will potentially join the health and care teams of the future.”
