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.


Are you keen to work in the community? Do you have an interest in nutrition support and home enteral feeding? An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 6 Dietitian to join our friendly proactive Community Dietetics Team for a 12 month fixed term contract.

The Community Dietetic Department, hosted by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust provides a countywide service to patients within Oxfordshire.  The post holder can further develop experience in enteral feeding within the community setting. There is a commitment to personal development and CPD and an expectation that all staff are involved in corporate departmental project work, audit/research and teaching of other healthcare professionals. All staff are actively involved in student training.

Plenty of professional development opportunities are available; quality, effectiveness and service user experience are given high priority. 

Oxford is a vibrant and interesting city with a wide range of entertainment and leisure activities available locally.  There are good road and rail networks to London and Birmingham, while the beautiful Cotswolds are right on the doorstep.

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.
