Things to consider

  • This vacancy is to start immediately therefore you must be available to start before applying. The closing date, interview date and start date are subject to change. This vacancy may close early if sufficient applications are received. Please ensure you apply early to avoid disappointment. Individuals are able to undertake an apprenticeship at a higher level than a qualification they currently hold, including any previously completed apprenticeships.
  • Individuals can also undertake an apprenticeship at the same level, or lower level than a qualification they already hold as long as the new apprenticeship allows for new skills to be acquired and the content of the training is materially different from any previous qualification or apprenticeship.
  • For example, if you already have a Level 4 qualification you still may be able to complete an apprenticeship at any level providing you meet the eligibility criteria and are learning substantive new skills.
  • Please note; if you have been progressed, you will be contacted to complete a telephone interview.
  • Please expect to receive a call from us within 5 working days. Applicants must go through this telephone procedure for your application to be progressed. 
  • Please be aware that as Northern Skills Group provide a recruitment matching service, we will also consider you for roles which pay the Apprenticeship National Minimum Wage.

About the employer

The ethos at Carew Dental is simple: to offer exceptional cosmetic, implant and general dentistry in a luxurious, stress-free environment.

We are also immensely proud of the relationships we build with our patients, focussing on your experience throughout your treatment journey. We believe visits to the dentist should not be stressful and we enjoy working with you every step of the way to ensure you feel comfortable, receive outstanding treatments, and just love your smile.

We also recognise that traditional weekday appointments are not convenient for everybody, so we have a flexible appointment schedule that includes evenings and weekends.
