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.


This is an exciting opportunity to work in a high profile position influencing the shape and direction of social care practice in Buckinghamshire’s mental health services.  You will be working for Oxford Health and be supported by the Head of Social Care and Senior Management Team to lead on social care practice in either the adults of a working age  or older people’s service provisions.   You will work in conjunction with our partners in Bucks County Council and ensure the best possible outcomes are gained for our service users and their carers through the Section 75 arrangement.

You will support our community teams and inpatient services to deliver high quality person centred services with a fully integrated social care perspective. You will provide leadership to social care staff across these services through training, supervision, quality assurance and innovative service development. You will have worked as a manager and have experience of working extensively with mental health service users.  You will be a creative, ‘can do’ person and will  receive excellent support as you develop your career with us.
