COVID SUPPORT WORKER

 

Have you got time to earn money by helping to prevent COVID-19 spread in Bradford District? Then Bradford Council has important roles for YOU 

Since the start of the pandemic Bradford Council and partners have been at the heart of preventing the spread of COVID-19.

The Council has staff working in local communities every day and evening helping to share messages, promote testing and encourage people to do the right thing.

Whilst some of these people will have tested positive or come in contact with people who have tested positive, you will not be at risk as you will always be able to maintain 2 metres social distance, be trained and have all the relevant PPE. You do not enter properties, all the doorstep work is undertaken in gardens.
