Careers and volunteering

Our reputation is built on the care we offer and our history as one of the great centres of medical research and training. If you join us you will be joining more than 1,500 colleagues helping us to deliver local healthcare that has global impact. We also have a thriving volunteer community for which we are one of only three holders of the prestigious Queens Award for Volunteer Service in the West Midlands.

It goes without saying that you will be dedicated and caring. In return, we make sure you will have excellent development opportunities, whatever your role.

At BWH, we offer a wide range of staff benefits and services. Being situated in Edgbaston means you have a whole host of attractions right on your doorstep in the UK’s second city, Birmingham.

  • training and development opportunities – we have our own dedicated education centre providing education and training courses. We also make sure staff have regular appraisals and personal development plans

  • promoting your mental well-being
