Reporting to

Oxfordshire Breastfeeding Support Operations Lead

Overview of the role

The Clinical Director will provide leadership and clinical supervision for our team of specialist breastfeeding facilitators. They will work closely with OBS trustees, the Operations Lead and other non-clinical team members to ensure and develop the provision of high-quality, equitable feeding support. The Clinical Director will represent OBS in relationships with other local and national providers that relate to clinical practice. We expect that around two thirds of your time will be spent in this team and public facing area.

The Clinical Director will be the go-to person for new and established OBS volunteers. They will induct new volunteers, arrange volunteer team meetings and supervision sessions and support the development of both individual volunteers and the volunteer team. In this aspect of the role they will work closely with the administrative team, who act as contact points for prospective volunteers and provide administrative support for the volunteer team. We expect that around one third of your time will be spent in this volunteer facing area.

Although this role can stand alone, it may best be fulfilled by someone who is also providing clinical facilitation work for OBS. You can apply for clinical facilitation work via the single application form (button below) and you can find the Facilitator role description here.
