Job Type: Zero Hours

Salary: £8.91 per hour 

Job Location: Hull

Required licence or certification:

  • Driving Licence held for 12 month

The above is not intended to provide an exhaustive list of duties, but it indicates the main areas of responsibility, and is subject to review and amendment in response to the changing needs of the business.


The government published on 4th August 2021 operational guidance for people working or deployed in care homes. This publication, for which all PTS staff fall under the remit of, outlines that staff working in or deployed to work in care home must not enter the care home unless they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This is a nationally published policy that the ERS Medical is required to adopt.

This will become a legal requirement from 11th November 2021, meaning that from this date PTS staff will only be permitted to enter a care home, once they have received full vaccination against COVID-19 and are a minimum of 8 weeks post their second vaccination. Entering care homes to assist patients to and from planned appointments is a fundamental part of the PTS role.

All applicants must therefore have received both COVID vaccinations at the point of submitting an application to ERS Medical and this requirement forms part of the conditions for any subsequent offer of employment. All successful applicants will be asked to evidence receipt of both COVID-19 vaccinations at interview.

(This will affect all health care workers with effect from the 1st April 2022)

Thank You
