Would you like a nursing role which doesn’t involve shift work? Are you ready for a change? Why not consider research nursing at the Oxford Vaccine Group? The Oxford Vaccine Group (OVG) are seeking enthusiastic nurses to join the Paediatric Research Nurse Team, all training is provided so no experience in research is necessary.

Venepuncture and immunisation training will be provided. Applicants should have good communication and organisational skills with good attention to detail.
OVG conducts world-leading research into creating new and optimising existing vaccines for children and adults.
