As Clinical Director you will be responsible for the delivery of clinical activities and the commercial performance of the entire group. You will develop the strategic direction for Rowe as part of the IVCE Evidensia group. You will work closely with the Group Practice Manager and Clinical Leads to ensure the group continues to perform exceptionally both as a growing business but also as a Group that drives clinical excellence.
We are excited to offer a flexible role to the right candidate and are open to discussing shifts that work around you, whether this is part-time or condensed days and hours. 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.
