Job overview

3 x 10 PA Permanent vacancies 

On the 9th November 2021 the Government announced new regulations which we anticipate will come into force on 1 April 2022, requiring people who conduct Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulated activity in public (NHS) or independent sector health and social care settings in England, to have received two doses of a Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) approved COVID-19 vaccine unless exempt.

Please be aware that provided these regulations do come into force as currently planned, this role will be affected and as such, successful candidate(s) will be required to show proof that they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as part of the pre-employment check process. If you are unable to prove that you have been fully vaccinated (i.e. that you have received two doses of an approved vaccine) please note we will be unable to proceed with your application and any offers of employment made will be withdrawn.

See COVID Vaccination Information attachment for further details
