If you’re looking for a challenging role that offers enormous personal satisfaction, with great prospects of a permanent career within the Blood Donation team at NHS Blood and Transplant, you’ve come to the right place. We collect blood donations from donors which are used by every NHS Trust in England and North Wales to save and improve patients’ lives. We’d like you to help us.

You will receive on –the- job training to undertake this vital role. We hope that you will be available for work for at least a minimum of a day per week initially, so that you can learn all about how your role will work within our blood donation team.

  • We will need you to work at blood donation sessions with us with very little notice so you will need to be flexible
  • We will need you to help our staff manage donors as they arrive and check in at our blood donation sessions- so you will need to show us that you have good customer care skills
  • We will train you to book future appointments for donors who have donated and to thank them for donating as you serve them with refreshments and monitor them after they have completed their donation.
  • You will help us to provide a professional, caring and customer focused service to our donors, making sure they are feeling fit and well and proud of themselves as they leave the session.

If this sounds like a challenge you would enjoy and could commit to –please come and join us. Ideally you will have a driving licence and access to your own vehicle so that you can travel to meet your local blood donation teams, at a variety of local blood donation venues, on an as needed basis. We do provide NHSBT transport from our team bases and so we may be able to provide transportation to sessions if you don’t drive.
