The Trust’s apprentice programme is open to anyone* who is interested in starting a career in the NHS Ambulance Service.

Whilst working alongside our staff, apprentices are given the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills over a 12 month period. At the end of the year all of our apprentices have the opportunity to continue their career and apply for substantive posts available within the service.


This is Laura – she joined WMAS as an apprentice in the Press Office. As you can see, she had an interesting year with us. She was eaten by a giraffe, knocked off a bicycle, had CPR performed on her by a giant green paramedic turtle called Lloyd and taught the team how to use Instagram! During the 12 months, Laura gained her intermediate level apprenticeship qualification and learnt a broad range of skills. She has now progressed her career with us and works as a call assessor in the control room answering 999 calls.

In partnership with Performance Through People, WMAS offers successful candidates the opportunity to obtain an intermediate level apprenticeship in Health (Healthcare Support Service) qualification, whilst gaining first hand on the job experience.

If you are passionate about working within our multi-award winning & outstanding service and playing your part in ensuring that we continue to deliver excellent care to our communities within the West Midlands then we want to hear from you.

*Please note this vacancy is not suitable for applicants holding a level 4 qualification or above.
