The Welsh Blood Service (WBS) provides blood products to NHS Hospitals across Wales and is currently recruiting part time Clinic Collection Assistants.

From the members of the public who make incredible, life-saving donations to the dedicated members of our team who make it happen – people are essential to the service we provide. You could help us change lives.

The role is diverse and will include taking blood, welcoming donors, testing donors to see if they are able to give blood on that day or maintaining records and offering basic clinical advice and aftercare. You could also be loading/unloading and assembling mobile donation equipment. You will need to be comfortable with the sight of blood.

You must be able to travel to undertake the duties of the post at various locations.

We will give you all the technical training you need to perform venepuncture (using needles to take blood), so you don’t need a medical background. However, you will need to demonstrate excellent customer service skills and have a friendly and flexible approach which will make donors feel welcome at ease and valued.

Work hours are varied and can include some long days, weekend.

There will be a requirement for you to work in various settings and also on the mobile donation unit.
