Become an infection tracker at the social services and health care unit

Identifying infections and tracking the exposed is an important part of fighting the coronavirus. The trackers are in contact by phone with the infected ones and those exposed to coronavirus.

The trackers work during weekdays and weekends from 8–20. The work requires accuracy and it is fast-paced and customer-oriented. We work in teams.

We value a degree within social services and health care, but more importantly the skill to meet others. Having completed the course for tracking coronavirus is beneficial during the introduction. Extensive language skills are also an asset. The job as a tracker starts with an extensive and intense introduction course.

We have already hired over 200 professionals within health care to become trackers.
