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.

For more information about our Values and Value Based Interviewing please visit  http://www.ouh.nhs.uk/about/vision-and-values/default.aspx


 

We are looking for a pro-active, motivated individual who enjoys working in a small team.  The successful candidate will play a vital role in booking and coordinating all patient appointments and answering the patient telephone for the Thames Valley AAA Screening Programme.

 

Past experience in a similar role is not essential. Applicants should be extremely well organised with excellent time management skills.  They should be able to use their own judgement to resolve issues, and have a tactful, sensitive approach to dealing with occasionally difficult situations.  Applicants also need to have a good working understanding of how to use a computer and also be able to use Microsoft Word and Excel.

 

Team work is essential to the role as we are a very small close knit team and the successful candidate will be expected to communicate effectively at all levels.

 

The role is full time, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm and will be based at Oxford University Hospitals Trust based at Unipart Cowley.

 

Interviews will be taking place on Thursday 7th June 2018.

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.
