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.


The Community Services Directorate provides healthcare services in a range of community settings including peoples’ own homes, care or residential homes, community hospitals and community clinics.  

The role of the Integrated Locality Operational Manager will have responsibility for the operational management and leadership for several community teams including nursing and specialist therapies which provides an interesting mix.  However, this portfolio of services may change as the directorate develops in response to local and national strategic objectives, in particular the NHS Ageing Well Programme, as Oxfordshire are an Accelerator site for this.  

You will be a caring and compassionate leader with a style that creates a culture of positivity that inspires others to deliver high quality care. You will possess excellent written and verbal communication skills. The role requires good organisational skills, the ability to work under pressure and to manage changing priorities. 

The post holder will work closely with a supportive group of managers, clinical and professional leads to develop our community services in line with the national strategic aims and objectives of the Community Services programme.  You will be heavily involved in the development of neighbourhood teams and integrated care pathways. Experience of project management will be an advantage.

As the post holder will be required to travel around the county a driving licence and access to a car is an essential requirement. This post will initially be located in the West of Oxfordshire, in Witney, however this location will be reviewed during the first year as portfolios develop and change.

The post involves some weekend, bank holiday  and unsocial hours working as Duty Operational Manager.
