Northwick Park interns secure paid roles after completing initiative at Harrow hospital

Congratulations are in order for the Project Search graduates who have all secured paid employment after successfully completing their internship at Northwick Park Hospital

Project Search, supported by partners including Medirest and London Borough of Harrow (Harrow Council), helps students with learning disabilities and autism gain practical workplace experience with the NHS together with a route into employment.

The initiative has a highly respectable 70% success rate in finding graduates paid employment compared to the national average of 7%.

Pippa Nightingale, CEO of LNWH Trust, said: “We’re keen to recruit our workforce from the local community where possible and support people who have traditionally found it tough to get a foot on the job ladder, such as those with learning disabilities.”
