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.

This is an exciting and rare opportunity to play a key role in developing and improving community-based healthcare across Oxfordshire. The postholder will be responsible for working with a senior team to establish and deliver a strategy for the transformation of Oxford Health's community-based NHS services, in particular enhancing the future role of community hospitals and innovative models of community-based care and health improvement.

Applicants will have excellent strategy development, stakeholder and service change (project management) skills and a passion for and experience in improving health outcomes via transformation of health and care services. The successful postholder will become a key part of the Trust's Primary & Community Services Improvement Team, working internally with Directorate and corporate leads, and will play a key role in developing patient engagement and system relationships across Oxfordshire.

This is a great opportunity to develop new skills and deliver changes that will benefit the health and wellbeing of Oxfordshire's diverse population.
