Rising to the national COVID challenge

By Robin King

​Sanctuary Personnel has an award-winning track record of helping healthcare clients quickly mobilise staff to deliver care safely. Now, we’re rising to the COVID challenge by recruiting entire healthcare communities across the UK.

Our efforts have already seen us place 150 nurses at COVID Blood Plasma Donation Centres throughout England. A further 25 Sanctuary nurses are on their way to join 14 new NHS Blood and Transplant locations, with more vacancies to be released.

Just one week on from the first COVID vaccination being administered, and we’re fiercely mobilising entire teams of nurses and HCAs (Band 2-6) for NHS trusts up and down the country. These include Band 2 Vaccination Site Stewards, Band 3 Healthcare Assistants, and experienced Band 5 and 6 vaccination nurses and supervisors.

Make your experience count

Never has it been more critical to come together to fight this hugely destructive virus that is threatening our wonderful NHS.

You will be making history by vaccinating the nation or collecting blood plasma to help those already in hospital.

Every shift you work will help the NHS win the fight

Each day, more vaccination PODs are opening across the community - at hospitals, GP surgeries, and other locations.

Most vaccination PODs are open from 8 am until 8 pm seven days a week, so you will be able to pick up 12-hour shifts 07:45 am – 20:15 pm and if you are a Band 5 Immunisation Nurse, there is an hourly uplift. The roles are expected to continue until at least Spring 2021.

Likewise, a number of 3-month Plasma Collection Nurse contracts are available at NHS Blood & Transplant Donation Centres.

Every day our friends in the NHS approach us with new COVID-related healthcare jobs. Your chances of securing a role are increased if you’re already registered with Sanctuary and have completed all the relevant compliance checks.
