Do you wish to earn while you learn? And work for one of the area’s leading employers?

Why not apply for an apprenticeship with Western Sussex Hospitals – Health Education England’s regional Apprentice Employer of the Year 2017.

Current opportunities include physiotherapy, pharmacy, medical imaging and healthcare apprenticeships, as well as business administration apprenticeships with hospital teams such as Sexual Health, Sterile Services and the Project Management Office.  

Chief workforce officer, Denise Farmer, said: “We’re very proud to be one of the area’s largest employers of apprentices, many of whom take up full-time positions with us once they qualify.

“We offer a really broad range of opportunities which helps us to attract talented young people who understand the benefits of getting into the NHS early for a very rewarding, and potentially life-long career.”

Anyone interested should contact the trust directly by emailing apprenticeships@wsht.nhs.uk or apply through the national apprenticeship website – www.gov.uk/apply-apprenticeship.
