Lateral Flow Testing Helper
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is having a major impact across the UK. Lateral Flow Testing is part of the government plans in response to COVID-19. This has been rolled out to local authorities to manage within their local areas. London Borough of Lewisham are going to implement LFT – Lateral Flow Testing – which provides results in a much shorter space of time. This will allow for rapid testing of key segments of the population and help us to get the pandemic under control in London.
We are supporting Lewisham by recruiting Site Operatives and Testing Operatives to ensure a smooth and efficient end-to-end system to testing participants.
You will be provided with full and appropriate PPE according to your role. You will always maintain social distancing with both participants and other co-workers to mitigate the risk of transmission whilst at work. Lewisham and Reed are working to recruit locally for candidates who are able to commute by walking or by bicycle to minimise public transport use during this time.
As a Site Operative, you will work to ensure an orderly entrance to the site, greet subjects, provide full and clear instructions to participants on what to expect, provide testing kits and give instruction and guidance in effective test taking. As a Testing Operative, you will process the swab, prepare and load samples, and ensure data is input accurately.
If you reside within Lewisham (to avoid using public transport) or a stone throw away, we would be interested in hearing from you. If you are keen on the role and would like to be considered, apply now for immediate consideration.
