We’ve had plenty of work for dentists keen on the London catchment recently, particularly for one of our mid sized corporate dental clients – recruiting locums to manage their UDA targets for the financial year.
It always amazes me how many applications we receive from dentists keen to live and work in the London catchment when we advertise a job, despite the astronomical cost of living and relatively low UDA contract values when compared to other areas.
A new client called in today in Chichester, a lovely Cathedral city with great amenities and bang on the South Coast for anyone who loves watersports – sailing in particular.
Their practice has 5 surgeries currently, with plans to add two more dedicated Hygienist/Therapist surgeries, combined with a private medical spa and their own on-site dental laboratory technicians – if the dentists want to use them. Every dentist in the practice currently offers a range of NHS and Private General Dentistry as well as places their own implants and any new dentist will be encouraged to do the same if they are qualified, or to enroll on an appropriate course.
On current market rates, you would say that they pay their Associates above average UDA contract values (and certainly above those being offered in London) and can offer an in-coming associate supervision and mentoring for them to build up their implant portfolio or even support and sponsor a dentist keen to do their implant diploma.
So, great lifestyle benefits, working in a Cathedral City, close to the South Downs and right on the coast, offering excellent income potential, training and development opportunities, great experienced staff and only 90 minutes direct to London Victoria – it’s surely got to be tempting to look at opportunities a bit further out of London?
