  • Undertaking physical measurements for example: Blood pressure; waist and hip circumference; height; weight and body fat percentage; grip strength; lung function; blood, urine, saliva and hair samples.
  • Recording information on prescribed medication taken by participants.

We're looking for:

  • Friendly and courteous people who like meeting others
  • Good organisational skills
  • A good standard of written and spoken English
  • The right to work in the UK
  • Current registration on the NMC register as a nurse or midwife with experience of taking blood samples in the last six months

  • Willing to undergo a DBS check (Disclosure and Barring Service)

In return we can offer
