Sanctuary recruiting for Mass COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

By Dan Allard

Following Government announcements to roll-out COVID-19 vaccinations, Sanctuary Personnel is delighted to be playing its role in the fight against coronavirus.

We are currently recruiting on behalf of St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospital, the lead employer for the COVID-19 Mass Vaccination Programme across the Cheshire and Mersey area.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to join St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospital to help beat coronavirus, save lives, and relieve the pressure on the NHS.

If you’re a registered Band 5 nurse or Band 6 supervisor, you could be part of the hugely-important vaccination programme.

We are recruiting for vaccination PODs of:

  • 1 x Band 6 Supervisor (overseeing the POD during each shift)

  • 2 x Band 5 Immunisation Nurses (with anaphylaxis training)

  • 6 x Band 5 Registered Nurses (to support the immunisation nurses and provide clinical support)

All nursing experience from different settings will be considered, but Band 6 Supervisor and Band 5 Immunisations Nurse roles must have proven relevant experience.

The initial vaccination POD will be situated at St Helens Rugby Ground, with other PODs to quickly follow throughout the Cheshire and Mersey area. Therefore, you must be able to travel from site to site (although not within a shift).

The vaccination PODs will be open from 8am until 8pm seven days as week and so you will be expected to work 12 hour shifts of 07:45am – 20:15pm. Payments for these will be in alignment with the NHS England and NHS Improvement cap.

Note, there is an hourly uplift for Band 5 Immunisation Nurses.

To be put forward for the vaccination POD roles, you must:

  • Have the relevant experience detailed above

  • Be immediately available

  • Be able to commit to work throughout the programme (December 2020 until March 2021, possibly longer)

Simply upload a copy of your CV and we’ll have you up and running in no time!

We can also accommodate part-time/flexible working patterns (depending on the request). Please state your availability in your application.
