The Role

You will ensure the clinic is ready for the following day’s procedures. There may also be occasional nursing consultations, reception duties where required and some administrative duties.

We are keen to offer family-friendly options, so part time/job share hours are also a possibility. Talk to us about the hours you can work (4pm or 6:30pm starts possible)
