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.


Are you a registered practitioner (Nurse/ Social Worker/ Occupational Therapist) with training in mental health?

Do you have a passion for working with young people?

This role starts at a band 5 with the opportunity to work through a set of competencies  to move into a band 6 role.

We are delighted at the prospect of recruiting a  Mental Health Practitioner to join North Oxon ‘Getting More Help’ Team, within CAMHS. The team covers the North of Oxfordshire and it is anticipated that the post holder will work across the whole locality with flexibility to work from bases in Banbury and Bicester. 

We are a supportive, fast paced team who believe in looking after one another so we can give our all to our patients. We work together to find solutions to team issues and are looking for a team player to join us, as we strive to continually improve. This is a new role to our team, as we wish to support colleagues with their professional development and building new skills and knowledge within Community CAMHS Service.

Child and Adolescent Mental Health expertise and experience is desirable, but NOT essential as we recognise that expertise and experience in adult mental health is transferable.

If you enjoy a challenge are enthusiastic and want to make a real difference, we very much look forward to hearing from you.
