Help us find safe and effective vaccines, treatments and diagnostics for COVID-19
Finding safe and effective vaccines, treatments and diagnostics for COVID-19 is of high priority to the UK - and is part of the global response to the coronavirus. This will help to protect us all more quickly, which in turn could help the NHS and save lives. We have a range of paid and flexible opportunities available for healthcare staff, whether you're currently employed in the NHS, returning to healthcare, or coming out of retirement.
We are also interested in hearing from members of the public who are interested in roles that do not require healthcare registration. We also welcome expressions of interest from those interested in unpaid work. For all potential roles, you would need to compare your skillset with our list of key duties.
