RJAH recognises the value of apprenticeships and are seeking to offer apprenticeship opportunities across the Trust. 

What’s an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a real job, with real training, meaning you can earn while you learn and gain the necessary skills and professional competencies in your chosen career.

All apprenticeships include elements of on the job and off the job training leading to industry recognised standards or qualifications.

More details on salaries and entry criteria in specific apprenticeship occupations can be found on and search apprenticeships.


Apprentices are:

  • employed for a minimum 18 month period
  • paid a training salary
  • employed by the Trust and will receive the same terms and conditions as permanent members of staff
  • able to undertake a standard or framework competency based qualification which is acquired through the workplace experience.  This is supported by regular attendance at college and/or a tutor who visits them in the workplace
  • provided with training and development opportunities 


All RJAH Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust apprentice vacancies can be found on NHS Jobs here.
