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.


The Urgent and Ambulatory Care Service is looking to recruit into a new Receptionist role created for the Minor Injury Service. Working in either Abingdon or Witney MIU this role has been created to support the Clinical teams and help them deliver outstanding care.

The role will be based at either Abingdon or Witney MIU and will operate Monday - Friday between 10am and 6pm (with a 30minute break).

As a Receptionist working in the team you will be the first contact that patients and visitors have with the service. Your role will include booking patients on to the clinical system, monitoring patient flow and advising of waiting time, identifying urgent cases (using the clinical system triage questions) and requesting clinical support, making appointments for outpatient clinics, signposting people to other departments, dealing with telephone calls and other administrative tasks.

Do you have great customer service skills? Do you like a new challenge every day? Do you want to work in a diverse and friendly team, putting patients and their care first? If so this may be the role for you.

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
