Thank you for your interest in a post at The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. Every employee at the Trust strives to provide excellent patient experience every single time. We strive to be an excellent employer for every one of our employees from the day they apply for employment with us. We have four core values, developed by our staff, and these are at the heart of everything we do to enable us to deliver our ambitions of excellence.

Could you help deliver Covid-19 vaccines? Your NHS needs you.

The first Covid-19 vaccination has been released, with others anticipated to follow shortly. The vaccines are our best defence against the virus alongside effective social distancing, wearing a mask and hand hygiene.

The NHS across West Yorkshire has already begun vaccinating and we are now getting ready to launch the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals vaccination service.

Our vaccination service will be provided from two sites. On the 4th January 2021, we are launching a community vaccination centre at Navigation Walk in Wakefield city centre. This is likely to be in operation 12 hours a days, 7 days a week, where the teams will be vaccinating members of our local community. We shall also be launching a vaccination centre at Pinderfields Hospital, which will operate, initially, for 8 hours every Tuesday- Thursday, to vaccinate health and social care workers employed across Wakefield.

This is a new service and we plan to grow the team rapidly over the coming months by recruiting to a number of roles. Roles can be offered on a flexible basis, including outside of usual working hours, to fit with your other responsibilities and commitments.

We are calling on colleagues to join our team as clinical supervisors, to provide professional leadership and support to our vaccinators, clinical assessors and immunisers/vaccination clinic support workers. You will be instrumental in ensuring that we offer an excellent vaccination service to every individual who accesses our service and for helping to develop this brand new service.

You will be key in supporting the vital next phase in the health service’s COVID-19 response. This role will appeal to individuals who want to make a difference to the health and safety of our workforce and our local communities; who want to “do their bit” in the response to the pandemic and who want to be part of history in the making.

In all roles, appropriate training, supervision and PPE will be provided to ensure the safety of staff, volunteers and patients.

As well as the clinical competences required for these roles, it is essential that you have previous experience of supervising colleagues as your leadership and supervisory skills will be key to developing the service and we will expect that you undertake your role in a manner which embodies the values of the Trust.

Assessments for this role are likely to begin week commencing 4th January 2021 and we will be holding regular assessments via Microsoft Teams. Please ensure you have access to this software when making your application.
