We are looking to recruit a number of COVID Support Assistants and COVID Support Officers, on temporary 6 month contracts, to join the Team who can be deployed across the organisation and across the services supporting our response to COVID-19 including:

  • Contact tracing
  • Providing support to our testing sites and testing processes
  • Advice and engagement on control of the virus with local businesses and members of the public
  • Working with our Public Health, regulatory and enforcement teams.

  • Customer focussed
  • Committed to supporting our residents in the response to covid
  • Good at working as part of a team
  • Willing to adapt and undertake different tasks and responsibilities
