Medway residents can get paid this Christmas to help the fight against COVID-19. 

Medway Council is recruiting people to welcome visitors back to Medway’s shopping areas this December, following the success of the Medway Greeters after the first national lockdown.   

Medway Greeters will be on hand across all five town centres and other village shopping areas to help answer queries and encourage the public to follow social distancing guidelines to help stop the spread of the virus in Medway. There are also supervisory roles available. 

Full training and uniforms will be provided to successful candidates. 

It is anticipated the successful candidates will be in place from Thursday, 3 December, after the national lockdown has been lifted and depending on local restrictions. 

Both the Medway Greeter and Medway Greeter Supervisor roles, which are temporary positions, offer some flexibility with successful candidates able to advise on their preferred working locations and hours - preferences will be met where possible.  

Providing guidance on measures in place to protect shoppers 

Leader of Medway Council, Cllr Alan Jarrett, said: “We are currently recruiting for Medway Greeters and Medway Greeter Supervisors as part of our fight against coronavirus. I would encourage residents looking for a job opportunity in these challenging times to apply.  

“With the support of the council, businesses across Medway have put social distancing measures in place so residents can shop safely locally. Medway Greeters provide an additional important role in our town centres and village shopping areas, welcoming residents and providing guidance on measures in place to protect shoppers and staff.  

“I would encourage residents to continue supporting Medway’s businesses and high streets, especially this Christmas. Residents will also be able to enjoy the Christmas lights when shopping in Medway’s town centres this festive season.”
