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.


Oxfordshire Children's Integrated Therapy Service is looking for an enthusiastic and experienced administrator to provide comprehensive administrative and secretarial support to the children's physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy teams. The hours required are 22.5 per week over 3 days; 9.00 am-5.00 pm, Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

The successful candidate will report to the Band 4 Locality Administrator and will be based at Orchard Health Centre in Banbury, but may occasionally need to travel to other sites to cover periods of sickness or absence. This is a busy department and the role will involve a variety of tasks including processing referrals using the electronic patient record, dealing with telephone and email enquiries and booking appointments. You should therefore have good written and verbal communication skills and accurate keyboard skills. You should also have excellent organisational skills and be able to prioritise your workload whilst managing competing demands.

You will be working with other members of the children's therapy admin team, clinical staff and parents and families, responding to any enquiries in a professional manner and always providing an excellent level of customer service.

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.

The postholder will have access to vulnerable people in the course of their normal duties and as such this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.
