Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on lives, health and the economy. The UK Government and its medical and scientific advisors have been clear that the only safe and sustainable way out of the Covid-19 pandemic is through a vaccination programme.

We are seeking people with the appropriate experience to join us, with the common life-saving purpose of recovering our community from this pandemic.

This will be the largest immunisation programme of our time. That's why the Department for Health and Social Care recently consulted on temporary changes to legislation allowing a wider group of staff to undertake vaccination training.

As a Registered Health Care Professional working in immunisations, the post holder will work as part of a dynamic team in delivering a safe and effective service for the mass delivery of vaccinations for both influenza and the COVID-19 vaccine(s). The post holder will undertake activities such as: clinical assessment, dilution and drawing up of the vaccine from multi-dose vials and post vaccine observations support.

In particular, the post holder will be responsible for:
  • The configuration of the vaccination pod and vaccination station.
  • Conducting clinical assessments.
  • The review of complex medical histories and potential adverse reactions.
  • Preparation of the vaccine prior to administration by the immunisers using aseptic technique.
  • Ensuring the best possible clinical outcomes by using up-to-date skills and adhering to evidence-based policies and procedures.


Briefing and training on Covid-19 vaccines will be provided by our Staff Development Team

Working pattern:
  • Full time
