Job Description

I am looking for several Covid Test Centre Operatives to start work in the Redcar area, from Monday the 25th of January, for the local authority.

My client is hosting a mass testing programme to support the testing of asymptomatic members of our community. This means testing people who do not have any Coronavirus symptoms to determine if they are carrying the Coronavirus infection and unknowingly passing it on. Having recently started our programme, we are increasing our capacity of tests to cover as much of our local community as possible.

Candidates should expect to work any 5 out of the 7 day week up until about 8pm.
Full training will be given for each role which includes, online training to be completed prior to starting a shift, (and you will be paid to undertake the online training) and on site training will also be given on the day of your shift. On site personal protected clothing (PPE) will be available for the duration of a shift. Should an employee wish to be tested prior to starting a shift, they will be welcome to do so, but this is not a requirement.

There are two different roles available and my client is looking to hire:

  • Test Kit Assistants
  • Registration / Admin Assistants (singing people in, carrying out paperwork ect)

Roles range from £11.00 - £15 per hour depending on what role you are carrying out. Work provisionally for a 6 week period, possibly longer.

Please apply within or call the office ASAP on 07912274473. Please be prepared to send over the following documents or your application will not be processed any further:

  • CV
  • NI Number
  • A name and a number of a next of kin
  • Two names and numbers for references
  • Passport
  • A photograph of yourself
