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.

The Maternity & Obstetric Department are looking to recruit ward clerk/receptionists to work in the Women’s Centre – John Radcliffe Hospital. The roles will be predominantly working on the Delivery Suite but cover for Maternity Assessment Unit and the Post-natal wards would be expected in times of annual leave and sick. We have one fulltime post of 37.5 hours and another post of 34 hours a week. Day time shifts, Monday to Friday (08:00 – 16:00) and twilight shifts (16:00 – 22:00) would be part of the normal rota. Night shifts (22:00 – 08:00) would be covered in times of annual leave and sick. The Delivery Suite is open 24/7 so Bank Holidays would also be part of the normal working rota.

Maternity is an exciting environment to work in, where you get the chance to work with and meet a large cross-section of hospital staff. The role is varied and at times challenging, but never dull! You should be a team player, who enjoys communicating with a wide range of people, be highly organised and have a flexible approach to work. The successful applicants will have a good general level of education and be able to deal with a busy environment. You will also need to demonstrate good organisational skills and have the ability to remain calm under pressure. Knowledge of the EPR system would be desirable, although not essential. If you are looking for a friendly, professional team to work with please apply.

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.

The postholder will have access to vulnerable people in the course of their normal duties and as such this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.
