Clinical Administrator

Posted 5 days ago by Capita

We're supporting our clients as they adapt to the unprecedented circumstances brought about by COVID-19. As a result, we're currently only recruiting for essential roles during this time. All interviews, assessments and background checks will take place online, to completely remove the need for face-to-face contact.

It's important to note that most of our sites are now closed and employees are working remotely where they can. Where offices are required to stay open, we are following government guidelines on personal hygiene standards, daily cleaning of employee work areas, maintaining safe distances and limiting the number of people in the office at one time.

We also have clear policies on business travel and continuity.

The welfare of our people is of paramount importance to us, and we're doing everything we can to keep our employees and customers safe during this time.
