You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.

We think you will enjoy working for us but you don’t have to take our word for it – 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy’s and St Thomas’ as a place to work.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the team in the removable laboratory at Guys Hospital as a band 5 Dental Technician. This is a permanent appointment.

You will be expected to provide a broad range of work however the majority of the work will be the construction of simple to complex removable prosthodontics appliances for clinical staff and postgraduate students. You should ideally be experienced in the production of simple implant retained dentures and removable metal frameworks, ideally including attachments. You should be capable of constructing the full range of complete and partial dentures to a high standard. Knowledge of surgical appliances and stents would be an advantage but not necessary as full training would be given.

You must have an appropriate dental technology qualification, such as a National Diploma. An advanced qualification in removable prosthodontics is desirable but not necessary as equivalent experience would be equally considered.

The ideal candidate should be a great team player. For the right person it is a great opportunity to progress in their career.
