We are now recruiting volunteers to support the Sutton Council COVID-19 Response Asymptomatic Targeted Testing (ATT) in schools across the borough.

Covid 19 schools testing programmeAs part of efforts to keep Sutton safe by reducing COVID-19 (coronavirus) cases in the borough, Sutton Council is helping Sutton schools to source people to help with the Lateral Flow Testing of asymptomatic staff and pupils. Lateral Flow Testing (LFT) is important because it will help us identify cases of COVID-19 in people with no symptoms, who may be unwittingly spreading the infection. Through doing this, we will help ‘break the chain of transmission’ of this disease. This testing is in addition to, and complements, the existing national testing programme for people with symptoms. The tests give results within 30 minutes, without the use of a laboratory.

We are recruiting for 2 roles and you can click on the links below to read a full role description:
