Learning and opportunities

We want our current workers to develop their skills and experience too.

Where needed, we support additional training to expand the number of areas they can work in.

Supporting you

You might already have some experience of working in Adult Inpatient settings, but want to do some work in Children and Young People’s Inpatient Services; we can support you with this.

You might have experience as a healthcare assistant in general health services, but would like to expand your skills to mental health services as well; we can advise you on the training you need to complete.

You might have no experience of working in the NHS at all, but are looking for a new direction or a first job; we can help you get started.

Accessing opportunities

There are no fees for attending training courses and we’ll pay you for the time spent training.

During your first three months as a flexible worker, you will complete essential training to ensure you and our patients are safe (in some roles, some of this training will need to be completed before you can start work.)

Could be right for you?

School leavers and students​
If you are a school leaver or student and want to gain some experience of working in the NHS, flexible working could be for you.
Returning to work
If you are looking to return to work after a career break or want the flexibility to choose your hours to fit around your family commitments, flexible working can offer you what you’re looking for.
Gaining experience
If you are already working in a permanent role, but want to gain some different experience and additional pay, flexible working could be the way forward.
Seeking a permanent post
Flexible working can also often be a good first step to a more permanent position with Oxford Health, providing the opportunity to try different roles.
Work additional shifts
You can still keep your flexible worker position even as a permanent staff member, so you still have the opportunity to work in different teams and get paid for additional shifts.
