You’ll have routine embryology duties, such as sperm preparation, semen analysis, oocyte collection, fertilisation checking, embryo grading, embryo transfer, embryo cryopreservation and embryo thawing – all while delivering the highest standard of patient care at all times.
But you’ll need leadership/management skills, as there’ll be times when you’ll be responsible for daily running of the laboratory in the absence of the laboratory manager – so not only the embryology team, but also the activities within, and these could call upon your experience and management skills (patient support, technically difficult cases). That means leading by example, in a capable and calm manner, even under pressure.
You’re a great communicator, you can explain things simply and clearly to everybody - we have a lot of technical support staff, and it’s important they understand what we’ve asked them to do and also why we have.
You have great attention to detail and you’re able to follow process and best practice – making sure others don’t deviate from best practice. You’ll also always be looking for areas for improvement and feel comfortable putting them forward.
You’re state registered as a Clinical Scientist and it would be great if you have proven biopsy experience.

We’re CARE Fertility, and we aim to be the greatest employer of embryologists in the country, so you’ll have unrivaled opportunities to develop your skills and abilities. We have a range of bespoke toolkits such as CARE Maps, genetic testing cycles, a vast array of high-tech embryology procedures and many developmental projects you can contribute to.
You’ll have opportunities to attend conferences and networking – being an ambassador for the company. We have specialist focus groups to get involved with, plenty of R&D with the opportunity to do research projects You’ll also be given an area of responsibility – such as donor sperm, procurement, lab quality, training junior staff or managing the rota.
You’d be joining a dynamic team in one of CARE’s busiest laboratories. CARE London undertakes many complex cases, including PGT-A, PGT-M/Sr and social oocyte freezing and performs around 1,100 fresh and 700 frozen treatment cycles annually. The clinic works closely with 5 main satellites (and 6 smaller ones) making the role even more varied.
The embryology team currently consists of a Manager, 3 Seniors, 3 Clinical Scientists, 2 Technicians and 2 Technicians/Administrators. Procedures are spread across 6 days.
A little more?
We’re based in London (NW8 7JL), in walking distance of Baker Street and Marylebone tube stations.
This is a full-time role, including some weekend sessions and we offer flexibility where possible.
