£30,401 to £37,267 pa

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.


Clinical Procurement Specialist BAND 6


It’s a great time to join our expanding procurement team in a time of innovation and change!

We are looking for a Clinical Procurement Specialist to work closely with our Procurement Business Partners and our Devices & Consumables Category Manager and play a key role in delivering projects to assist the Trust in meeting its financial targets and wider objectives.

To be successful you will be a confident communicator ideally with extensive knowledge of medical products and devices.

Our team is committed to working constructively and collaboratively with our suppliers to deliver the best outcomes for our patients.
