Join us at Frome Community Hospital and be involved in pioneering the future of patient care, close to home, family, friends and local community support.

Frome Community Hospital has a ward with 24 inpatient beds and an additional 4 bedded Assessment and Ambulatory Care treatment clinic, a Nurse Led Minor Injuries Unit and a team of doctors, nurses and therapists who are dedicated to supporting patients during their hospital stay and who deliver personalised and high quality, compassionate care in line with an agreed care plan. We have apprentice healthcare assistant vacancies for an enthusiastic, dynamic and motivated applicant.

We have development opportunities for staff and are committed to enabling members of the Nursing team to reach their full potential through experience and additional training, development and education.

You will provide general nursing care to all your patients ensuring that patients are treated with dignity and respect. You will be able to promote a safe environment within the unit.

You will be required to work flexibly on an internal rotation, which will include working days and nights over 7 days. We offer a generous holiday entitlement and pension scheme.

Informal discussions and visits to the Hospital are welcomed.

As part of your learning you will complete an educational pathway with Bridgwater and Taunton College, which we will fully support you with.

Bridgwater and Taunton College are proud to be the region's leading provider of Apprenticeships and work with a large number of local and national employers to train the next generation of professionals. The College’s dedicated Business Development team is highly experienced in the development and delivery of Apprenticeship solutions.

This is a fixed term contract, gaining valuable work experience and a level 2 apprenticeship.

An Apprenticeship is a work-based training programme designed around the needs of both employers and employees, which leads to nationally recognised qualifications for the apprentice.

This training is flexible and is predominantly on-the-job meaning, it takes place on your work premises. An apprenticeship will ensure that you are properly trained to perform the job you need to do.

Anyone can be an apprentice, from a school leaver looking to enter the workplace to an existing employee who wants to progress in their chosen career.

Our values are simple: Outstanding Care, Working Together, Listening and Leading.

We recognise that our staff are our most valuable resource, we are proud of the excellent levels of service our Trust provides to our service users and the dedication and conscientious of our staff. With this in mind, we offer a range of staff benefits including:

Relocation package – up to £8,000
