Covid Testers

You are invited to join our team of casual covid testers to help ensure the smooth and safe return of our secondary school children in the autumn term.

The latest government guidance for schools asks that children carry out 2 on-site lateral flow tests, 3 to 5 days apart on their return in the autumn term and by joining our team of casual covid testers, you will support the processing of these tests for our secondary students.

We are aware that many in our communities continue to suffer the economic effects of Covid and so once again, we would like to share with staff and parents and suggest if you have family or friends you would like to put forward for one of these casual opportunities, we will do our best to support their applications. Details of these posts are listed below:


The Roles:

We have vacancies for testers, processors, cleaners and administrative roles and you will receive full training to ensure you can carry out all roles required in our testing stations.

You will need to be organised, with great attention to detail and hold good administrative skills. 

As you will be within a school setting, a DBS check will be carried out as part of the recruitment process. In addition to this, we will require two satisfactory references.


Times and Locations:

Based on what we currently understand, initially we are looking for testers to cover 8.30-4.30 each week day over a 4-week period, term time only (subject to change dependant on Department for Education guidance).  Ideally you will be available to work full days but flexibility can be discussed at interview. 

The testing stations will be located at Beauchamp College, Sir Jonathan North Community College, Judgemeadow Community College, The Cedars Academy, The Martin High School, Humphrey Perkins School and Beauchamp City Sixth Form.  You will be asked at interview which locations you are able to travel to.


If you are interested in joining our team of casual covid testers, please send a one-page CV demonstrating your suitability to by no later than 4pm 31 July 2021, and please note that any applicants who meet the criteria for the posts  may be invited to interview prior to the closing date so please don’t delay if you wish to apply.
