Main duties of the job

The Trust is made up of four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital (which includes the Children's Hospital, West Wing, Eye Hospital, Heart Centre and Women's Centre), the Churchill Hospital and the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, all located in Oxford. These sites are roughly 3 miles from Oxford city centre, with exceptional public transport links, as well as a free shuttle bus service between sites and access to parking. Our fourth site is the Horton General Hospital in Banbury, which is in north Oxfordshire. This site is just over a mile from the Train station and also has excellent bus routes as well as onsite parking.

If you live locally the sites are commutable from Bicester, Abingdon, Wheatley, Didcot, Wantage, Witney, Buckingham and Farringdon and many villages in between. If you live further afield and you are considering relocating for this position, the recruitment team will be happy to provide you with information on staff accommodation and assist you with help and advice on relocating.

Oxford is steeped in history and is probably best known for its links with The University of Oxford, and the Harry Potter films! It's also known as the 'City of Dreaming Spires'.

Aside from the University, Oxford City Centre itself has recently undergone a transformation with the introduction of new bars and restaurants as well as a new shopping centre. Outside of the city centre there are numerous villages and large green spaces. It really does have something for everyone.
