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.


Do you have an interest in a range of activities and a passion to share your knowledge and skills with people? If so, you might be just the person we are looking for. A great opportunity has become available for someone with enthusiasm and an ability to be creative to design and deliver social and recreational activities our psychiatric intensive care inpatient unit.

Ashurst Ward is a 13-bedded psychiatric intensive care unit where you would be working with men and women who are in an acute period of mental health distress. You will be supported day to day by the experienced and supportive clinical team as well as having Occupational Therapists on hand to provide advice, guidance and supervision. You will also have the support of 2 other Activity Coordinators who work within the Ashurst ward across the week.

The role of activity coordinator is a well established and respected part of how we support an individual’s recovery. The service we offer is exceptional; our teams are highly skilled and extremely passionate about what they do. There are activity coordinators on all of Oxford health’s Adult Inpatient Wards and they meet regularly to share skills and ideas in order to support and learn from each other.

A background in the care sector or previous volunteering may be beneficial but being able to create positive working relationships with people and an ability to engage proactively in a caring environment are equally important.

If you think this sounds like you, or you are interested in finding out more, please get in touch. We would love to hear from you.

The successful candidate will work a shift pattern over 7 days. You will not be expected to work nights.

Prior consideration will be given to “at risk staff”.
