Volunteering for the Covid-19 project
To increase testing for COVID-19, the Government has significantly expanded its laboratory capacity and staffing. As the testing programme ramps up further, we require additional experienced laboratory staff.
What can you do?
We are recruiting additional staff for our laboratory in Milton Keynes.
We are particularly interested in individuals who are comfortable working in a qPCR environment, and those who can operate liquid handling machines, although more generalist laboratory support is also required.
This is a paid role and you will be employed on a temporary contract. If you are currently employed full time, and wish to help, we welcome your application. We will be happy to discuss secondment options with you, however, you will require permission from your current employer.
Where necessary, appropriate accommodation and reasonable expenses will also be covered. You will need to be able to start right away and be flexible in your hours of work.
Sign up now!
You must be aged 18 years or over, and fit and well with no symptoms of COVID-19. Nobody in your household must have symptoms. Full training and Personal Protective Equipment will be provided.
We unfortunately cannot consider you if you, or anyone in your household, are in a high risk group (over 70, pregnant, with immune deficiencies or underlying medical conditions).
If you think you have the skills to work in the laboratories, follow the link below to apply via the national recruitment partner Reed.
We look forward to hearing from you.
