Would you, or someone you know, like to get involved? Perhaps you are furloughed or have some spare time on your hands.
We are looking for individuals to volunteer to be part of our COVID-19 on site testing team, initially at our Conway Park Campus, to support the national programme of Coronavirus testing in schools and colleges.
As a volunteer you will be supporting both the College and local community in the local testing process. Our volunteers will be facilitating the College’s testing process by providing guidance and supervision to students and staff on test swabs, and ensuring that testing stations are cleaned or preparing test samples for analysis, processing them and interpreting test results.
Our Ideal Volunteer
Don’t worry if you have no prior testing experience as there is both a well-defined training programme and strict procedures in place and you’ll always be working with experienced personnel. More importantly for us, you’ll have the right attitude – great interpersonal skills and supportive nature, probably gained through experience of working in a customer service role or with young people. If you’re first aid trained or have a healthcare background that would be a bonus but not essential.
Flexible shifts would be offered, typically between the times of 8.30am – 5pm. We anticipate that you would need to be on site for a minimum of 5 hours.
