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.


The Community Health Services Directorate Quality Team provides the support, analysis and challenge about quality and governance of clinical services. The team works closely with all clinical services to help drive improvements in patient safety, experience and outcomes.

We have an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic and motivated candidate to work in Community Health Services as a Quality and Clinical Standards Manager. This is a good opportunity for someone who wishes to expand their knowledge and experience in Quality management and Governance.

The post-holder will drive quality assurance and improvement work in the directorate's clinical services and clinical outcomes by overseeing the incident management process, the mortality review process, patient safety initiatives, quality account priorities and audit and clinical effectiveness. The post holder will be mainly responsible but not limited to  Urgent and Ambulatory Care and Children's service line within the directorate.

Candidates should have good knowledge of clinical governance, CQC standards and national and local priorities linked to patient safety particularly in community settings. The post-holder will be required to work 5 days per week (37.5hrs) and will be based in the Older People Management Offices in Blackbird Leys, Oxford.

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.
