COVID-19 Testing Workers

The Bedford College Group is in the process of rolling out a mass COVID-19 testing programme for staff and students across our Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire campuses (Bedford, Old Warden, Kettering, Corby and Wellingborough). 

We are looking to develop a bank workforce who can support the delivery of tests at our campuses across a range of different roles, which will include tasks, such as:

  • ensuring the safe and effective distribution of COVID-19 tests users
  • ensuring the testing process is completed by users correctly and efficiently
  • providing service to users to assist in the full testing process from booking on, receiving test through to storage and completion and disposal in-line with company policy and legislation
  • undertaking all mandatory training relevant to the safe performance of the role.

Prospective candidates will need to demonstrate excellent customer service, alongside the ability:

  • to work well as part of a coordinated team
  • to communicate effectively with those being tested and to colleagues
  • to work in a highly confidential manner, respecting the privacy of staff and students.

This is a flexible hourly paid position, the associated rate of pay is £12.50 per hour.  The required PPE will be provided to all candidates to ensure they can work as safely as possible.
