An apprenticeship with DHU is a great opportunity to start a career with one of the region’s best healthcare providers.

Working with a range of suitable apprenticeship providers, you will receive a positive and stable environment during your apprenticeship, with on-the-job training to ensure you become a valued part of the workforce from day one.

"DHU is proud to support the Apprenticeship Scheme, and we value the contributions our apprentices make within DHU. It’s great to see our new colleagues flourish and thrive in the workplace, growing in confidence as well as gaining new skills and experiences. Our apprentice program at DHU has been very successful, and the learning we have gained from our apprentices has helped shape organizational policies and procedures."

We have had successful apprenticeships in various areas, including Information Governance, People & Culture, Business Intelligence, and Finance. For existing employees, we also support apprenticeships in line with their roles.

Apprentices work towards nationally recognised apprenticeships while earning a wage and gaining industry experience at the same time.

Apprenticeships are designed by employers and equip apprentices with the relevant knowledge and skills to prepare them for a successful career in their chosen area of work. They also gain valuable work experience and learn transferable skills that set them up for the future.

With the option to study qualifications from Level 2 through to degree level, it has become a great alternative to university.

To become an apprentice, you must:

  • Be 18 or over
  • Not already be in full-time education

You can start an apprenticeship whether you’re starting your career, want a change or you're upskilling in your current job. You can have a previous qualification like a degree and still start an apprenticeship.

If you don’t live in England, check out apprenticeship options in Scotland, Wales, or Northern Ireland.
