Nurses, midwives and care support staff seeking a healthy work-life balance are being urged to join the biggest staff bank in England to access flexible front line roles in Oxford.

NHS Professionals has more than 180,000 bank members and we have exciting roles available now at one of our partners, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Flexible positions at all grades are available, from entry-level care support workers through to senior specialists, especially in critical care areas such as theatres and adult, paediatric and neonatal intensive care.

As an NHS Professionals bank member, you get to choose the shifts you work and you’ll be the first to choose them, ahead of external agency staff.

You’ll also enjoy a range of other attractive benefits including:

  • competitive pay rates
  • paid annual leave
  • access to a range of accredited health and wellbeing resources
  • exciting career and professional development opportunities, such as our Care Support Worker Development Programme
  • National Service Centre staffed 24/7/365, so you can call anytime for information and support
  • a leading pension scheme
  • NHS Professionals Bank Member awards scheme to recognise exceptional achievement.

Another benefit is that we’re owned by the Department of Health and Social Care and that means we reinvest any surplus income back into the NHS.

But perhaps the most valuable benefit we offer you as a Bank Member is the chance to achieve a healthy balance; a healthy balance between your patients, colleagues, family, friends and you.

Each one deserves quality time and attention, and yet balancing everyone’s needs while working on the NHS front line can be hard. Year-on-year rises in demand and the onset of COVID-19 have only made it tougher.

But having greater flexibility over when and where you work can make a positive difference. By taking greater control, you’re more empowered. That’s why growing numbers of nurses, midwives and healthcare workers are choosing flexible working as a life-long career.

Midwife Teresa Walker joined us after making that choice. She said: “NHS Professionals has supported my work-life balance and family commitments enormously. While I still want to support the team and work on the unit, I have the ability to choose what suits around the needs of my family.”

Joining NHS Professionals also means you’ll be part of a thriving community of flexible healthcare professionals, all supporting the NHS and each other.

NHS Professionals Chief Nurse Juliette Cosgrove said: “Our bank members deserve a community where they can engage with each other, develop their skills and take care of themselves, ensuring they can build on the resilience they have depended on during the pandemic so far to avoid burnout.

“We promise to be with them at every moment so that they can confidently build the flexible career that works for them.”

Do the right thing for the NHS in Oxford and the right thing for you.
