Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust has been rated as Good by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

We are a responsive and innovative Foundation Trust that places our values of Caring, Safe and Excellent at the heart of everything we do. We take great pride in our staff and believe that investing in you is key to us achieving our vision of outstanding care delivered by outstanding people.

We work with a wide range of partner organisations to deliver care and support to people in their own homes and from a number of hospitals and community bases. We focus on delivering care as close to home as possible.


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a band 5 Occupational Therapist to join the Community Therapy Service in the South West locality of Oxfordshire. We are looking for a motivated individual who is passionate about working in rehabilitation and keen to develop their clinical skills in a supportive environment.

The Community Therapy Service aims to provide high quality, responsive therapy to adults with a range of complex physical impairments and mental health conditions. You will manage a varied case load and provide rehabilitation for patients in their home environment. You will work closely with members of the of the Community Therapy Service and the wider multidisciplinary team.

You will be given excellent opportunities to engage in CPD activities and be supervised by a senior Occupational Therapist.

The successful candidate will have evidence of some post graduate experience, preferably including working in the community. They will be able to organise their own travel arrangements to meet the needs of the service and operate as a mobile worker to maximise our ability to meet the demands of the service.

The Community Therapy Service is a seven-day service; therefore some weekend working will be expected.

Community Therapy is at the forefront of current government initiatives to deliver more healthcare out of acute hospitals and closer to home with the aim of providing better care for patients.

This is a fixed term post until September 2020.
