For the first time, Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust has joined forces with HCUK Training, the Apprenticeship team at Harrogate College, to offer exciting new opportunities for people who have a desire to build a rewarding career within the NHS.
Apprenticeship opportunities include a number of Apprentice Care Support Worker posts in medical and surgical areas, which would see apprentices gaining a level 2 qualification in Clinical Healthcare Support.
Successful applicants will work as team members within the hospital, benefitting from the same opportunities as employees; including paid training costs, a guaranteed job upon qualification and the opportunity to progress your career with access to higher level study.
Jill Foster, Chief Nurse, said:
Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust is a fantastic place to work, with an unwavering focus on quality and where staff can deliver the kind of care they would like to receive, whether that be on our wards or in the community.
