The 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 of four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton 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 values-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 significance difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a new engineer/technologist to join our Radiotherapy Technical Services (RTS) team. The post holder will work as part of a small team based at the Churchill Hospital (Oxford Cancer Centre). Cover and assistance for the new Swindon GWH satellite will also be required so flexible working is a must, including extended days and weekend rotas.

The post holder will assist the team with scheduled preventative maintenance, servicing, repair, calibration, safety testing and quality assurance on a limited range of medical equipment used for radiotherapy treatment.

The post holder will have a strong background in electronics and is required to work to high standards of safety and accountability.  Candidates with less experience may be appointed at a lower band, and given training as required. Knowledge of linear accelerators would be advantageous but full manufacturer’s training will be provided.
