WE NEED YOU!

As we head into winter, the message from the government is clear – we all must be as vigilant as possible and get a COVID-19 test whenever necessary. We at Sodexo are proud to be continuing our important work supporting the national response to control the virus.

Our COVID-19 Testing Sites are key to this and we are seeking additional testing support at many of our centres across the UK.

We are seeking to recruit individuals to work as part of a team of Test Operatives undertaking COVID 19 Swab testing in Cambridge.

You will need to be available to work a shift pattern between the hours of 07:30am – 20:30pm.

Sodexo reserves the right to alter the site location and close this advert early if we are in receipt of a high number of applications.

The role of the Test Operative is to safely and correctly administer a throat and nasal swab test to key frontline workers who visit the test site, and supporting the overall testing process.

Test swabs will be administered up the nose or down the back of the throat; therefore, applicants need to be comfortable administering tests in this manner.

 

We seek applicants with the following:

  • Experience working with members of the public/patients
  • Excellent interpersonal skills and a supportive nature
  • Ability to physically stand for several hours with good mobility (for reaching into vehicles)
  • Willingness to work outside
  • Commitment to the work and adhere to the strict guidelines and procedures required
  • Native or bilingual proficiency level English
  • Experience working in a medical, clinical or health environment is desirable.
  • You must be over 18 and in general good health with no symptoms of COVID-19, nor must anyone in your household.

You must not be classified, or live with anyone classified, as belonging to any of the COVID-19 high risk groups (more detail can be found on the government website):

  • Must not have a long-term condition
  • Must not have immune deficiencies through medical conditions or therapy

    Training and full personal protective equipment will be provided.

Please note you will not be permitted to have your mobile phone on your person whilst working on site.
