Your NHS needs you: WE are recruiting NOW to help deliver the COVID-19 vaccine

The release of a COVID-19 vaccination is highly anticipated. When available, it will be our best defence against the virus alongside washing your hands, wearing a mask and effective social distancing.

With clinical trials progressing well, we are working with colleagues across the Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System (ICS) to deliver COVID-19 vaccines to millions of at-risk people across the country as soon as they are approved by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulation Agency (MHRA), the official UK regulator.

Vaccinating people as quickly as possible will require recruiting lots more staff, to ensure that the NHS can continue to provide other vital services that our patients are relying on.

We are therefore recruiting to a range of roles across West Lancashire. These are:

  • Registered health care professionals – Immunisations (Band 5)
  • Registered health care professional clinical supervisor – Immunisations (Band 6)
  • Vaccine administration support (Band 3)

We need people to work in a variety of locations across Lancashire and South Cumbria to vaccinate eligible groups of people. You will be employed on a flexible basis, paid for the hours that you work and have the opportunity to work a variety of different shift lengths and patterns. Vaccine centres will operate from 8am-8pm, 7 days per week.  In all roles, appropriate training, supervision and PPE will be provided to ensure the safety of staff, volunteers and patients.
