Are you keen to work with the community dietitians in an exciting and evolving administrative and clinical interface role? Do you have an interest in nutrition and have a desire to learn and develop your skills with patients? An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dietetic assistant to join our friendly, proactive Community Dietetics Team to assist with those patients that are tube fed in the community. The role will involve administration, invoicing and direct patient contact, including weighing patients, amongst other duties. You will also be involved with training and assisting the clinical team in the provision of patient care in nursing homes and patients' own homes. Training will be provided and you will be supported by comprehensive competencies. You will be part of an administrative team and be expected to cover in absences.
The Community Dietetic Department, hosted by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust provides a countywide service to patients within Oxfordshire. There is a commitment to personal development and it is the expectation that all staff are involved in corporate departmental project work, audit/research and mandatory training. All staff are actively involved in student training.
Plenty of training and development opportunities are available; quality, effectiveness and service user experience are given high priority.

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.
