Vaccination Programme Staff Nurse – Band 5 (Bank)

St Helens and Knowsley NHS Teaching Hospital Trust is the ‘Lead Employer’ for the mass COVID vaccination programme across the Cheshire and Merseyside areas.

We are currently preparing to deliver COVID-19 vaccines to millions of at-risk people across the region as soon as they are approved by the MHRA.

To prepare, we are looking for existing Band 5 Staff Nurses who are willing to join our bank to support this endeavour.

As a staff Nurse working on this programme, you will be assigned a role which may include one or more of the following responsibilities :

  • Conducting pre-vaccination clinical assessments.
  • Administering the vaccine.
  • Dilution and drawing up of vaccine from multi-dose vials.

We are looking for staff to work initially within the St Helens Area, however this is likely to expand to other locations within the footprint, once the mass vaccination sites are confirmed. At this time we are unable to confirm the exact location of these sites, but will discuss possible locations with you if you’re successful in your application.

We envisage working hours will be between 07.45am -20.15pm 7 days a week.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
