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.

Are you looking for a varied working environment? Would you like to develop your knowledge and experience of immunisations? Do you want to work term time only?

If you answered “yes” to all of the above, then being part of our new immunisation team could be the right opportunity for you.

We are looking for an experienced Community Staff Nurse with up to date immunisation experience to help deliver the School based Immunisation Programme in a variety of locations across the county, including Primary, Secondary and Independent Schools.

The ability to be flexible to meet the needs of the Service is essential, as is a willingness to explore alternative methods of immunisation delivery to reduce health inequalities in hard to reach groups.

The role offers a flexible working pattern, to meet service need, of up to 30 hrs over 4 or 5 days during term time only.

You will be offered the opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills through regular training and study days and by working alongside experienced colleagues.

The Immunisation Team is a small newly formed team which offers great support and experience to its members. It will provide great experience to those wanting to develop their management, clinical and organisational skills.

Own car or access to alternative travel for business use is essential.
