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.


We are looking for an enthusiastic, highly motivated Well-being Practitioner who has excellent interpersonal skills, outstanding organisational skills and experience of working with children and families.

The postholder will work within the iCATS:i2i (Identification of Child Anxiety Through Schools: identification to Intervention) research team.

iCATS:i2i is an NIHR funded research programme that aims to transform the lives of children with anxiety disorders and their families by improving tools for the identification of anxiety problems, and developing and evaluating a route for seamless identification and online intervention via schools.

The postholder will support parents in working through a low intensity, online psychological intervention, which helps parents to apply cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) principles to help children (8-11 years) who experience difficulties with anxiety. Support to parents will predominantly be provided remotely- online and over the telephone. The postholder will also support the adaptation of the online programme so that it best meets the needs of families identified within primary school settings.

The post is for up to 100% fte and will be appointed for 8 months in the first instance, starting August 2020. The post is employed by Oxford NHS Foundation Trust and will be based in the Department of Experimental Psychology in the University of Oxford.
