The role

We are looking to recruit fieldworkers to gather data for this critical piece of research to measure the extent of the COVID-19 pandemic. You will conduct a short telephone interview with households who have volunteered to help. You will then deliver and assist household members to self-administer swab tests which will be used to establish infection levels across the UK. We offer full training, a competitive rate of pay and travel expenses.

What we offer:

  • High quality initial training with ongoing support
  • Flexible working days
  • Competitive rates of pay
  • Personal mileage allowance
  • Opportunities to work on a range of social research projects in the future

What you need:

  • Internet broadband at home
  • Able to work a minimum of between 5 and 9 hours per day (depending on caseloads) for a minimum of 3 days per week. Some of this time will include work during evenings and weekends.
  • Use of a car is essential – personal business insurance cover is required
  • Documents to verify your identity and to show you’re eligible to work in the UK
  • Comfortable with using a smartphone to record data
  • Self-motivated, organised and dedicated to completing the work on time.
  • A friendly and outgoing attitude as the role is community based
