Hello, we are Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. Hull University TH is an extraordinary place to undertake an award winning apprenticeship programme. We have helped many local people gain invaluable experience of working in the NHS today, along with a nationally recognised qualification.

What is the role?

Are you passionate about science and care? Are you looking to build a career, not purely a job? If so this exciting, unique opportunity may be for you. The neurophysiology team is a small and friendly unit who are proud to be a changing and progressive department. We are actively involved in the training of students and encourage CPD for all staff. As such, we are looking to recruit two enthusiastic, driven Apprentice Healthcare Science Support Workers to work within our Clinical Neurophysiology service at Hull Royal Infirmary. This will be, initially, for a fixed term contract for the period of the Level 2 (Intermediate Apprenticeship) apprenticeship, with a potential opportunity to progress to a degree programme for the right candidate.

Who are we looking for?

The post will be demanding so we are looking for candidates who are ready for the challenge and share our values of care, honesty, and accountability. You will need to be able to demonstrate good communication and team working skills. Previous work experience in a health environment is desirable but not essential. 

Eligibility and entry requirements

Applicants need to hold a minimum of 5 good GCSE grades A*-C (New Grade 5 and above) including Maths, English Language, and a science. Predicted, or held, A Levels in 3 subjects (including at least one science) are also required at Grades ABB, or equivalent (128 UCAS points). Due to the nature of the work environment, this apprenticeship is open to those aged 18 years and above (at time of commencement on programme), and resident in the UK/EU for the last three years. You must not hold a similar qualification (including apprenticeship) at Level 2 or higher and you must not be in any form of formal government-funded education.

Future Prospects

Successful completion of the initial 12 month apprenticeship may lead to an extension of apprenticeship contract to complete a degree apprenticeship in healthcare science, specialising in neurophysiology
