Last year, thousands of people stepped forward to offer their time and skills to support NHS England’s COVID-19 vaccination campaign. Because of them we were able to roll out primary vaccinations to millions, saving thousands of lives and making the connections we value possible once more.
With the emergence of the Omicron variant, the vaccination programme was ramped up further. But while millions of booster vaccinations have already been administered, there's still much work to done. So join us now and you too could play a crucial role in protecting the connections that matter to us all. We are fully committed to providing the widest opportunities for skilled training and development as soon as you join the vaccine programme. Many people who are part of the programme have now begun a new career in the NHS across a huge variety of roles-over 11,500 people have stayed with us in paid jobs or training programmes
Joining a dynamic team, you’ll be providing vital support services across the vaccination centre. That will include helping to set-up and maintain vaccination pods and all areas of the centre. You’ll also ensure vaccines and any essential equipment are readily available, and manage clinical waste across the site. We’ll also be relying on you to thoroughly and consistently sanitise all areas of the vaccination centre, including the post-vaccination observation area.
