The Horton General Hospital in Banbury is looking for fit and healthy people to work at the hospital as housekeepers and porters.

Oxford University Hospitals is asking for anyone looking for temporary paid employment to 'please step up; by registering and supporting the NHS during this unprecedented time.

As the effects of the restrictions relating to COVID-19 are felt across multiple job sectors, the NHS needs additional staff in order to meet the increased demand and reduced staffing levels.

They are inviting people to come forward for temporary paid employment supporting their NHS.

An Oxford University Hospitals statement said: "So, if you are fit and well and looking for work, why not join the NHS Professionals OUH staff bank?

"This is an ideal opportunity for people currently without work or who have been ‘furloughed’ from current jobs. Please check if you need your employer’s permission to apply.

If you can, please step up by registering and supporting the NHS through this unprecedented time."

Anyone interested in the roles can start an application through the NHS Professionals web link here: University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH) is one of the largest acute teaching trusts in the UK, with a national and international reputation for the excellence of its services and its role in patient care, teaching and research.

The Trust employs over 12,000 staff and consists of four hospitals: the Churchill Hospital, John Radcliffe Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford and the Horton General Hospital in Banbury.
