Reed joins forces with NHS Jobs to fill vital Covid-19 roles in the NHS

nurse recruitment

Reed the UK’s leading job site, is working with NHS Jobs to promote over 1,200 COVID-19 critical roles that need to be filled.

Roles range from nurses and practitioners to radiographers, housekeepers and paramedics, as well as vital roles within the national vaccination programme.

The increase in roles coincides with the rollout of the vaccine across the UK and demonstrates the NHS’s continued need for support in the fight against Coronavirus.

Jobseekers have shown a keen interest in supporting the health service through the pandemic, with a 2,544% increase in COVID-19 related searches on reed.co.uk in the first two weeks of January compared with the first two weeks of December. Terms such as “vaccinator” and “COVID Tester” were some of the most searched terms relating to the pandemic response during the first two weeks of January.

Healthcare assistants, nursing and occupational therapy positions are currently in the highest demand, followed by administrative roles such as receptionists and medical secretaries. Whilst the majority of COVID-19 roles waiting to be filled are for medical staff, there are also many non-medical roles available, such as those in administration and housekeeping – all of which play a vital role in keeping the public safe.

James Reed, Chairman of REED, comments: “Job seekers are demonstrating a real desire to work for the NHS right now, in particular with applications for COVID-19 vaccinator roles going through the roof on reed.co.uk. It’s encouraging to see such a huge increase in jobseekers searching for COVID-19 support roles.

“It’s not just clinical roles proving popular, job seekers are increasingly applying to support roles such as cleaning, care and support as well. We’re proud to be working with NHS Jobs to help fill vital roles that support the national recovery.”

David Roberts, Head of Service for NHS Jobs, comments: “The NHS Jobs team has been working at pace to increase the reach of NHS vacancies and make it easier for job seekers to find roles relating to COVID-19. We appreciate the support that reed.co.uk has provided and it is great to be working together to support this national effort.”
