If so, then we have some great opportunities to join us in our fight against Covid-19.

We are looking to recruit a Project Coordinator to support our newly established and growing Covid Response service in our Public Protection service here at Lancaster City Council.

The post is critical to support and develop our front line Covid response service as our understanding of the pandemic improves and we consolidate our front-line team.

You will help develop, co-ordinate and deliver our Covid rapid testing service and direct our Covid Information Officers, but you will also be influential in developing the wider Covid response service.

Knowledge and experience of Local Authority functions and a broad understanding of Government policy and response relevant to the current pandemic crisis will be required.

The hours of work for this position are 37 hours per week, working Monday to Friday.

The Council currently operates an excellent Flexible Working Hours Scheme which applies to this post. Subject to the needs of this business, this may allow employees to work between the hours of 6:00am-10:30pm.

Staff cover is required each working day during office hours, and availability for ad-hoc operational requirements necessitating occasional work in the early morning, evening and at weekends or on Bank Holidays.
