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.


We are looking to appoint a CBT Therapist to join our modernised Buckinghamshire-wide mental health and wellbeing service. The service is designed to provide young people with expert help at the time they need it, with Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust working in association with the charity Barnardo’s.

You will be working in a community based team delivering a service to children, young people and their families in a supportive and lively multidisciplinary team, where differences in training are respected and valued. You will have the opportunity to play a significant role in the delivery of a modernised and comprehensive service to young people with moderate and severe mental health issues. As well as offering specialist CBT assessments and interventions, you will be play a key role in contributing to our developments towards a 4 week wait to assessment and interventions as part of the national Trailblazer pilot.

As part of this modernised new service we use technology to support our everyday working, so all clinicians have a 3G Ipad to use for work but it can also be used for personal use.

The post requires an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual who is willing to make a real change. If you are quality focused, enthusiastic, motivated and ready for a challenge, possess excellent communication and organisational skills then you are the person we are looking for this post.

We are happy to accept newly qualified clinicians awaiting BABCP accreditation and will support them in their development. For those without a core professional training, there is the opportunity to be supported during a band 6 development period in order to obtain the competencies needed to progress to the band 7 job description. The pay banding will reflect this - please contact us for further details.
