SWL Bank - Band 4 Unregistered Vaccinator
About the job
The NHS is delivering the Covid-19 vaccine, and the NHS in London is working hard to ensure we are able to offer this to all, at every stage, this is the biggest immunisation programme of our time.
We now need registered vaccinators to step forward in the continued fight against coronavirus and help to deliver an effective Covid-19 vaccination programme. We are looking to recruit from our local communities to enable us to provide a safe and effective vaccination programme while continuing to offer timely access and minimal impact on other NHS services.
You will be working across one of our temporary standalone sites within a local community. We have centres across, Kingston, Croydon, Twickenham, Battersea, Roehampton, Wimbledon and Sutton, and you are able to choose your shifts and sites through our rostering system.
Extensive preparations will ensure people across London can access a vaccine, regardless of where they live, once it has undergone strict clinical trials and is approved for use by the independent regulator.
You will be fully briefed and given training will be provided on Covid-19 vaccines.
In the meantime, you can prepare by ensuring you are up to date with any annual immunisation training as part of your registered professional training.
This advert is for Bank work and you will work as and when required, with flexibility to choose your shifts within the constraints of the service. Please note - if successful you will receive an offer from Croydon Health Services, as the host Trust for the South West London Vaccination Bank.
We particularly welcome applications from black, asian and minority ethnic candidates as there is an under-representation at senior level within Croydon Health Services NHS Trust.
We offer many flexible and part-time working opportunities and all of our substantive & Fixed Term employees can enjoy a range of staff benefits, including parking, a gym, an active health and wellbeing programme, an on-site nursery and a cycle to work scheme. We value diversity and promote equality of opportunity.

Applications from job seekers who require sponsorship to work in the United Kingdom (UK) are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. Please note that from January 2021, to work in the UK all candidates who are not UK or Republic of Ireland (RoI) nationals require sponsorship unless you have permission to work via another route. Non UK / RoI candidates wishing to apply can self-assess the likelihood of obtaining a Certificate of Sponsorship here. It is vital that you provide full and accurate details of your current immigration status on the application form. Overseas applicants applying for entry clearance into the UK must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided in continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Guidance can be found here. Not everyone needs a ‘Skilled Worker’ visa. If you are applying for a vacancy in health or adult social care, check if you’re eligible to apply for the Health and Care Worker visa instead. It’s cheaper to apply for and you do not need to pay the annual immigration health surcharge
