If you thought apprenticeships were just for school leavers going into a trade, then think again. Apprenticeships are for school leavers or graduates going into any profession and are even for those already in the job. It is another great way to get your first job in healthcare communications. Apprentices get a normal employment contract with a proper salary and holidays, but with the added benefit of 12 – 18 months of tailored training for their role undertaken alongside their on-the-job learning. It’s a great way to get work experience and a strong foundation of knowledge to help supercharge your career in healthcare communications.
