Employer: Department: Adult Mental Health Location: Warneford Hospital - Allen Ward, Oxford Salary: £19,737 - £21,142 per annum

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.

The opportunity has arisen for a Ward Clerk to join the Allen Ward team, working full time hours per week. We are looking for an enthusiastic, flexible, empathetic and self-motivated individual to work within our team. Previous experience of working in a similar role would be an advantage, though not essential as support and training will be provided.

You will need to have excellent communication, administrative and organisational skills, with the ability to liaise with employees at all levels. Knowledge of Microsoft Office, Word and Excel is essential. You will also have the skills to handle all contacts confidently with compassion, patience and professionalism. You will be working as part of the team which will involve developing knowledge of the processes and electronic system (care notes) used to ensure that clients' needs are met.

The role will suit someone who enjoys working in a busy office where they would be able to work as a part of a team, as well as under their own initiative. This is an important role which helps run an efficient service but is also an extremely rewarding one. We will offer the successful candidate a supportive team, with regular supervision meetings, opportunities for continued professional development and a friendly working environment.
