To increase testing for COVID-19, the Government has significantly increased the number of centres where key workers can be tested. As the programme ramps up further, additional testing support is needed at centres across the UK.
We are seeking to recruit individuals to work as part of a team of Multiskilled Site Operatives to provide support to the testing site.
The role of the Multiskilled Test Operative is to support the delivery and operation of testing for those patients that visit a COVID-19 test site. The roles will encompass all general daily tasks, inclusive of data input, test labelling, cleaning and deep cleaning, PPE distribution as well as supporting the end-to-end process of collecting samples from individuals.
Typical working hours are between 7.30am and 8.30pm with rest breaks and will be on a rota of an average of 4 days per week.
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.Job Description
