A team of 200 people are being recruited to help give the coronavirus vaccine to residents in Westminster.
The council-run Westminster Employment Service is working to recruit people to the two temporary mass vaccination centres in Westminster – Lord’s Cricket Ground and the South Westminster Centre for Health in Pimlico.
The roles include full and part-time jobs.
They include immunisers who will get full training to vaccinate people with the coronavirus vaccine as part of the UK’s biggest mass vaccination programme.
They will be paid £14.83 an hour.
Other roles include front-of-house, who help direct people, at £12.18 an hour, and administrators, who will be paid £13.10 an hour.
It is part of the nationwide aim to vaccinate as many people as possible – with the aim of delivering 15m vaccines to the over 80s and health care workers by the end of February.
People can register their interest here and by choosing ‘NHS mass vaccination jobs’ under the section ‘What type of work are you looking for?’.
