Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the country. It provides a wide range of general and specialist clinical services and is a base for medical education, training and research.

The Trust comprises four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton General Hospital in Banbury.

Our values, standards and behaviours define the quality of clinical care we offer and the professional relationships we make with our patients, colleagues and the wider community. We call this Delivering Compassionate Excellence and its focus is on our values of compassion, respect, learning, delivery, improvement and excellence. These values put patients at the heart of what we do and underpin the quality healthcare we would like for ourselves or a member of our family. Watch how we set out to deliver compassionate excellence via the OUH YouTube channel.


Many of our recruitment programmes use Value Based Interviewing to identify those who have the skills we seek, who share our values and who are able to deliver compassionate excellence from the outset. We know that this makes a significant difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

Are you looking for a career where you can really make a difference and at the same time learn valuable new skills?  Our reception staff are the first point of contact for patients and visitors to the Endoscopy department at the John Radcliffe Hospital. They help to ensure the patients’ experience is what we would expect for our own family and friends.  As well as patient-facing reception duties, this role also encompasses the administrative processes required to ensure everything is prepared and accessible to the clinical team in advance of a patient’s appointment.

This role offers variety and the opportunity to learn a wide range skills that will equip you well as your career progresses.  NHS experience is not essential as full training will be given.

We expect candidates to be motivated, hardworking and well presented with a positive and professional approach to providing excellent customer service.

 The vacancy we currently have are for full time hours (37.5 hours/week), consisting of rostered 7.5 hour shifts involving some evening and weekend work, on a permanent contract.

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.
