A range of shifts will be available for your to choose across the seven day week (no nights) and you should be flexible in your approach. You must also be prepared to work outdoors with appropriate training and PPE provided.

This is an opportunity to provide real support to the NHS in the fight against Covid-19. If you are an effective communicator, good at dealing with the public in a stressful or potentially challenging situation, we want to hear from you. You will need to be available to commence and attend training w/c 24th May 2021.

Tell us in no more than 100 words why you feel you have the personal skills & experience to succeed in this role, plus let us know your preferred location.
