If you’re interested in working alongside professional staff who will help give you the confidence and qualifications to help you progress your career, then come along to the Charles Hastings Education Centre at Worcestershire Royal Hospital between 10am and 1pm on Saturday.

Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust is looking for apprentices to join all three hospitals (in Worcester, Redditch and Kidderminster), to earn a wage while learning practical and relevant skills.

As a Business Administration Apprentice, you can gain valuable work-based skills as well as a nationally recognised qualification. The hands-on apprenticeship programmes allow you to develop yourself and improve your confidence, all while avoiding student loans and earning a wage.

Ben Payne, Key Documents support officer at the Trust, who completed an NHS Business Administration Apprenticeship, said: “Having the opportunity to work as an apprentice within the Trust is an excellent stepping stone to a rewarding career. There are varied roles and opportunities to develop personally and professionally. Completing my apprenticeship gave me the skills and experience of various roles and tasks, and most importantly the confidence to apply for my current permanent position.”

Bowel Cancer Administration Assistant, Chloe Upfield, who also completed a Business Administration Apprentice in the Trust said: “Becoming an apprentice was the best decision I have made, it was a big step from leaving school at the age of sixteen. I have met so many lovely people over the two years in different departments. It has helped me to grow in confidence and has helped me achieve things I never thought I could.”

Holly Page, Clinical Audit Facilitator, who completed her Business Administration apprenticeship in 2014, said: “Starting my career as an apprentice gave me a great advantage, as it provided me with the confidence and skills I needed to progress in my career”.

To meet the team, and take the first step towards a rewarding career, come along to the Apprenticeship Open Day from 10am at the Charles Hastings Education Centre, at Worcestershire Royal Hospital on Saturday.

Free parking will be available in the Charles Hastings Education Centre car park. For further details visit: www.worcsacute.nhs.uk/apprenticeships
