Could you be our next Phlebotomist or Donor Assistant?

Job Description

The Role

Pet Blood Bank are recruiting for Veterinary Nurses (Phlebotomists) and Donor Assistants to work across multiple regions of the UK. As part of the collection team, these roles involve working at donation sessions where lifesaving blood is collected from dogs. As a phlebotomist, you are responsible for performing blood collections from our canine donors, whilst working alongside the supervising Veterinary Surgeon and Donor Assistants. As a Donor Assistant, you are responsible for helping to run the session, including holding our donors while they give blood, tidying and resetting the donation room for the next donor, running blood tests, assisting with paperwork and ultimately making sure the donors have an enjoyable time. Both role's are key to ensuring successful donation sessions and providing a positive experience for all our donors and their owners. 


Launched in 2007, Pet Blood Bank UK is the only charity that provides a blood bank service for all vets across the UK. As part of our charitable remit, our aim is to advance animal health and welfare and to relieve suffering by providing quick and convenient access to blood. Every unit of blood helps save up to four other lives, saving thousands of lives every year.

What's in it for you

In return, we offer full training and a great team working environment. The rate of pay is £14.20/hour for phlebotomists and £12.00/hour for donor assistants. For both roles, a mileage allowance of 35p/mile is offered for travel to and from venues.  

Further details

Sessions take place on Saturdays, Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and are approximately 8 hours in length. Flexibility is essential as start and finish times will be dependent upon the location of the venue. Pet Blood Bank envisage that you will work approximately 1 session a month, however there may be the option to work more. Own transport is required to get to venues - please note not all are accessible by public transport.
