We aim to deliver excellent customer service going the extra mile to satisfy the needs and wants of our diverse client range.  

Clent Hills creates opportunities for the whole team to come together through practice meetings and social events and we encourage interest and participation within teams and the entire practice to think creatively to enable us to continuously improve our services and our business. We have the facilities and resources for overnight care giving you the option to admit patients and know that they are safe and cared for on the premises.

The rota may include some days at other branches to provide variety to the role. Part-time applications will also be considered.

Our flexible approach to rota patterns and working hours truly tips the scale on your work life balance. We know that everyone has demands and priorities outside of their career and we want to make it brilliantly easy for you to strike the right balance. Whether you are looking to fix or flex your work patterns, we can find the right solution for you.
