We are a new IVF clinic started by a team of 3 senior clinicians who have a collective experience of more than 30,000 cycles over the last 15 years (UK and overseas). We are recruiting a senior embryologist with at least 3 years of quality experience, preferably with HCPC registration (or working towards it). 

We expect you to be skilled and experienced in ICSI and trophectoderm biopsy skills and ovum vitrification apart from routine skills.

Your salary and perks will be at the higher end of the range offered to senior embryologists in London and definitely more than your current salary.
