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.


Applications are invited from suitably qualified mental health nurses, occupational therapists and social workers, interested to join our Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service team based in Melksham, Wiltshire. This 3 days a week post involves being part of our busy and dynamic Getting Help team (formerly known as Primary CAMHS), and involves the assessment and treatment, using a range of brief interventions, of children and young people with mild to moderate mental health problems. Part of the remit is also to provide information, training and support to partner agency colleagues around children’s mental health issues.

We are interested to hear from qualified practitioners who have experience in working within mental health services and who have either experience of working with children and families or who are looking to develop these skills. This post would be ideal for those coming straight from qualifying as a mental health professional as we would offer great induction, preceptorship and training appropriate to the role, should this be required.

All professionals will have access to, and regular opportunity to meet with, their own professional group and/or their professional lead for peer supervision, CPD and to ensure that professional revalidation and identity is maintained.
