What are we doing?
Boots has a strong and trusted heritage in supporting the healthcare of the nation and in this time of need we are stepping forward to work with the Department of Health and Social Care, alongside other organisations, to resource Testing Units across the country to administer COVID 19 testing. The primary objective is to increase testing capacity throughout the UK and respond to need, testing essential workers and members of the public who show symptoms of Coronavirus.
The global impact of COVID-19 has been profound, and the public health threat it represents is the most serious we have seen in a respiratory virus since the 1918 H1N1 influenza pandemic (Spanish Flu). COVID-19 Testers help to continue the great work that’s been done during these unprecedented times and use every resource at our disposal to help bring this virus under control.
You will play a vital role in maximising our capacity as a country to fight the outbreak both on a national and local level.
As a COVID-19 Tester you will be an integral part of the Test Centre Team, contributing to its success. Reporting to the Tester Supervisor, you will work alongside Boots colleagues and other partners to deliver brilliant patient care to test essential workers and members of the public. Full training will be provided, and full Personal Protective Equipment will be supplied in line with NHS standards. Hours of work to cover a working pattern over 7 days a week with rest breaks, either 9hrs (per shift) (08.30-17.30) for a 9.00am-5.00pm site, or, 7hrs (per shift) (07.30-14.30/13.30-20.30) for 8.00am-8.00pm sites.
Your application will be processed, and you’ll be contacted shortly informing you of the next steps. Interviews will be held via telephone to avoid unnecessary contact and travel to site.
Diversity and inclusion is at the centre of everything we do. We are an equal opportunity employer committed to a diverse and inclusive workforce.
This role is subject to a DBS/PVG check, Boots is a Ban the Box employer and will consider the suitability of applicants with criminal convictions on a case-by-case basis. You will have the opportunity to discuss the matter with us before we make a decision.
