Peer support worker opportunities in Oxfordshire

Peer support worker opportunities in Oxfordshire

Spaces are still available for Oxford Health's Peer Support Worker training programme in Oxfordshire! Don't miss this opportunity to become our next PSW.

We are looking for candidates to fill 20 peer support worker (PSW) training places in:

  • Early Intervention Service
  • Community Mental Health Framework Hubs
  • Crisis and Home Resolution and Treatment team
  • Allen ward (female inpatient ward)
  • Safe Haven
  • Perinatal Mental Health team
  • Quality Improvement team

Peer support workers are people who have lived experience of mental health challenges themselves. They use these experiences and empathy to support other people and their families receiving mental health services, working alongside our multidisciplinary care team.

We also have specialist Peer Support Worker roles – see the flyers here:

PSW for Mental Health Hubs

Male perinatal PSW

Carer PSW

Applications close at 9am on Monday, January 31, so don’t miss this chance to get involved.

Interviews commence on February 3 and will be held virtually via Microsoft Teams.

Successful candidates will attend a 12-day training programme which will begin on February 15. You will also have a volunteer placement within one of the teams listed above. Once a PSW has passed the training and placement as a volunteer there will be a chance to follow a recruitment process for a paid role.
