Why choose an apprenticeship with us?

Begin your career with the NHS, one of the world's largest employers, by choosing an apprenticeship with our Trust.

No two days working with us will be the same. Fast-paced and busy, you will be working alongside likeminded people who are contributing to the health and wellbeing of thousands of patients who step inside our hospitals every year. 

An apprenticeship with us gives you:

  • a real job and a chance to continue your education 
  • a competitive salary with all your training paid for
  • hands-on experience and skills that employers want on your CV
  • a choice of vacancies in a range of areas across our hospitals

What is available?

We offer choice.

From working in an office to dealing directly with patients, we have apprenticeships in a range of subjects including (but not limited to):

  • Accounting
  • Customer Services
  • Healthcare Support
  • Healthcare Science
  • Pharmacy Service
  • Trainee Nursing Associate

How long does an apprenticeship last?

Apprentices are expected to work a minimum 30-hour week for at least:

  • 15 months for a Level 2 apprenticeship
  • 18 months for a Level 3 apprenticeship
  •  27 months (at least) for Levels 4-7

What happens at the end of the apprenticeship?

By the end of your apprenticeship, you will be armed with the skills and experience to continue your career further.

Although not guaranteed, you may be offered a permanent position with our Trust as the end of the apprenticeship. At UHDB, our plan is to recruit our workforce of the future.
