We are urgently recruiting COVID-19 volunteer marshals to support the COVID-19 vaccination programme at our two vaccination sites - Bradford College Old Building and Jacob's Well. This is a fantastic opportunity to get behind the NHS vaccination drive to protect our local communities from COVID-19.
Be part of history
The UK has played an important part in the global effort to vaccinate the public against COVID-19 and across Bradford and Craven we have now vaccinated half a million individuals with at least their first dose. This is down to the fantastic efforts of all those involved in supporting the NHS, including volunteers who have been vital to the success of our local vaccination centres.
What will I be doing as a volunteer marshal?
As a volunteer marshal you will support the COVID-19 vaccination centres by acting as the first point of contact for those going to their appointments, signposting them while onsite and helping them to get to the right place on time.
You will also be responsible for helping the public stay safe while getting their jab by making sure national guidance is followed, including social distancing, wearing a face mask and using hand sanitiser provided.
How much help we need
Any support you can give will really help us to run the centres smoothly and deliver as many jabs as possible. We get regular feedback from volunteers who say they gain a huge amount from their volunteering:
“I would recommend it to anybody because it’s such an amazing opportunity. Everyone is really friendly, making you feel welcome so you feel like coming back.”
“I enjoyed my session as a Steward at Bradford College. It was well organised and I had the opportunity to work at two different stations. Nice to get very good feedback from the public.”

Shifts available for this role are Monday-Friday 8.00am-12.30pm, 12.00pm-4.30pm and 4.00pm-8.00pm and will be agreed with your volunteer coordinator.
Please be aware that as a volunteer marshal you will come into regular contact with the general public as the first point of call for people visiting the sites.
While shifts are short, you will need to be mobile while you are volunteering, walking around the site throughout the shift.

Your safety and support
You will be supported by the site supervisor on all of your shifts. You can go to them with any concerns you may have.
Volunteer marshals will have a ‘walkie talkie’ and all volunteers will also be provided with a polo shirt to wear and appropriate personal protective equipment such as face masks to keep you safe whilst onsite.
You are also be required to complete the Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust volunteer induction before you can volunteer with us. This is to ensure that all our volunteers feel safe and supported in their role. Once we have received your application, we will contact you about the induction process.
Hear from our volunteers
“Previously the NHS has helped me and my family and I wanted to give something back.”
“I do it because I have relatives that have shielded for the past year and I want to make sure that they are in a safe society and also receive the vaccination.
“Come and join us!”
“I’d really recommend volunteering at these sites to anybody who is able to give a little of their time.”
