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 will 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 two months in advance which days and hours you’ll be working. The normal hours for this role are up to 75 hours per fortnight (full and/or part time working available – to be discussed at interview), which may include evenings, weekends and bank holiday working. If you are working an early shift, the earliest start time would be approximately 09:30 although more often around 10:30, if you are working a late shift, the latest possible finish time would be approximately 20:30. Please be advised that training for this role will take place four days per week over Monday-Friday, for approximately 6 weeks.
Please note, this position will also attract an Outer London High Cost Area Supplement of 15%, based on a minimum payment of £3,659 and a maximum payment of £4,664. There’s also an additional unsociable hour’s payment where applicable.
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.
