Recruitment Banner 2018

If you are interested in joining an organisation that will support you to improve people's lives, we'd love to hear from you. 

About us

Our staff provide NHS services in south east London and Kent that take care of the whole person - body and mind. We specialise in community health, mental health and learning disabilities services.

Our 4,000 members of staff work from a range of sites across the London boroughs of Bexley, Bromley and Greenwich and into Kent. In most of our roles, we pay outer London weighting of between £3,553 and £4,528 per year. We support our staff to develop, have excellent access to technology and have great opportunities for career progression and flexible working. We support staff well-being and offer practical support with housing.

We are committed to equality for all our staff, including around race, sexual orientation, disability and gender identity. We take equality and diversity seriously and have active BAMEx, LGBTQ+, disability and mental health staff networks. We have completed the first year of our Building a Fairer Oxleas programme which is making positive changes to how it feels to work at Oxleas. The initial focus has been on making recruitment and career progression fairer and improving cultural understanding. You can find out more information about this programme here.

You can also watch a longer broadcast discussing what has been achieved so far and what we plan to do next.

Enterprise Act 2016

We now offer a wider range of apprenticeship opportunities and have developed plans to increase both clinical and non-clinical apprenticeships in line with our workforce skill requirements. We presently offer apprenticeships from level 2 to level 7 available to all of our employees who meet the minimum standards required of the apprenticeship programme.

COVID-19 and vaccination

It is no longer a legal requirement for all in scope health and care staff in England to be fully vaccinated against Covid 19.  However, we recognise vaccination provides the best defence against Covid 19 for our patients, our staff and their families.  We therefore continue to encourage all prospective employees to engage with the vaccination programme and ensure they have been double vaccinated and received their boosters.  More information on the Covid 19 vaccination can be found at Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination - NHS (www.nhs.uk)
