Donor Carer

Job Reference: 918-BX5117

Employer:
NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT)
Department:
Sutton Team
Location:
Sutton Coldfield
Salary:
£18,813 to £20,795 pa

We receive over 2 million blood donations a year, but you don’t need a medical background or any qualifications to help us get them. We just need your friendly, flexible approach to make our volunteer donors feel welcome, at ease and valued.

 

We’ll train you to test if someone can give blood, perform venepuncture (using needles to take blood), update records and give basic clinical advice and aftercare. Naturally, you’ll need to be comfortable with the sight of blood.

 

It’s your passion for people and reassuring nature that’s important, and will encourage donors to return and bring family and friends along to donate.

 

You’ll enjoy plenty of variety including taking the donor through the blood collection process, driving our equipment vehicles, loading/unloading and assembling mobile donation session equipment. You’ll find the camaraderie in the team and sense of pride after each day is hard to beat.

 

You will be working on a shift basis but but we’ll let you know around 4 weeks in advance which days and hours you’ll be working. Weekend and bank holiday working will be required. You can expect to work some long hours, but you won’t be working more than five days a week or even the same days each week. You will be based at Sutton but may be required to cover the surrounding areas such as Birmingham, Solihull and Coventry.

 

We have three positions available:

 

X1 Full time, fixed term post for 12 months:

The normal hours for this role are 8 days per fortnight working 9.5 hours over these days, up to 10.5 hours a day. The earliest start time would be 08.00 with a finish time of approx. 18.00 at the weekends, if on a late shift (most weekdays) you would be starting at 10.15 and be finishing at 21.30.

 

X2 Part time, permanent posts:

The normal hours for these roles are 6 days per fortnight working 9.5hrs over these days, up to 10.5 hours a day. The earliest start time would be 08.00 with a finish time of approx.18.00 at weekends, if on a late shift (most weekdays) you would be starting at 10.15 and be finishing at 21.30.

 

Along with an attractive pension scheme and other benefits you will receive a minimum of 27 days holiday, which increases with service.

 

This is a great opportunity for you to join a fantastic organisation and to become part of a wider team who help save and improve lives. We’re an inclusive organisation that reflects the diverse communities we work with and positively encourage applications from all sectors of the community.
