100's of jobs being recruited into at our new Integrated COVID Hub North East
The integrated Covid hub is the first of its kind in the UK and includes a new Lighthouse lab at Baltic Park in Gateshead. This will enable many more Covid tests to be done in the region and is expected to open in December 2020.
We really want local people to benefit from these opportunities, which will play an important part in supporting the region’s fight against the virus.
Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is managing the new hub and people working in the labs will be employees of Newcastle Hospitals.
As an organisation we are serious about supporting a diverse workforce that reflects our local community and are very much focused on being an inclusive and compassionate place to work.
We are particularly keen to receive applications from:
- people from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic background
- people living with disabilities, hidden or visible
- those who have lost their employment during this pandemic or who have been out of work for a period
- students, including those on sandwich years.
