Apprentice Theatre Support Worker
An apprentice doesn’t have to be a school leaver. In fact we value experience here at Epsom and St Helier NHS Trust.
This full-time (37.5 hours per week) apprenticeship is undertaken within a fifteen month fixed-term contract and provides an ideal opportunity to begin your healthcare career at Epsom and St Helier NHS Trust.
The apprenticeship is delivered in collaboration between the Trust and an education provider. On successful completion of coursework and practical assessments, you will receive a Level 2 qualification in Clinical Healthcare Support plus a level 1 qualification in maths and English if you do not already hold this.
On successful completion of the programme you can progress to a permanent band 2 Theatre Support Worker position within Epsom and St Helier NHS Trust. From here we offer supported on-going learning with an opportunity for career progression.
