This is a great time to be joining Sirona. In 2020 we started a 10-year contract to deliver community healthcare across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire – the largest community healthcare contract ever awarded in the country.

There are development opportunities or the right person, including the opportunity to progress within the Advanced Practice field.

Our organisation is based in and around the vibrant city of Bristol, one of the most desirable places to live in the UK. A short drive from the city is beautiful rolling countryside and lovely beaches.

If you want to build a career within a community healthcare provider with lots of development opportunities, Sirona is a great place to do this – for example there is an opportunity for this role to be a rotational post into the community setting, if that is a path you wish to follow.
