Previous applicants need not apply.
The national Bowel Cancer Screening Programme has 5 Hubs and the Midlands and North West Hub is located at Rugby St Cross Hospital. The Hub is a very busy Department with an expanding workload which has necessitated the creation of a new post. The work carried out at the Hub is diverse with a Helpline, Laboratory and Packing Room element which provides a unique workplace with a skilled and dynamic team.
We are seeking to appoint Screening Administrators who will work in all three areas of the Department as required. The majority of their time will be spent in the Helpline taking calls and completing associated administration. There will also be a proportion of the time spent in the laboratory which involves handling faecal samples. A smaller proportion of time will be spent in the Packing Room which involves operating machinery. Full training is given. The work will be varied and provide the right candidate with a suitable level of challenge and interest. A highly organised and efficient worker will find the role rewarding and engaging.
The hours worked are a weekly rotation of 8:00am - 4:00pm and 09:30am to 5:30pm with Saturdays (08:30am - 12:30pm) worked on rotation (currently 1 in 6 Saturdays worked)
