The Role:  The role of the Practice Manager in Tenby is to act as the lynchpin to the whole practice both in bringing together the clinical and administrative teams to develop and face the challenges that general practice now poses, but to act as the glue that holds the team together.

The Candidate:  The ideal Practice Manager will have previous financial and people management experience with a good understanding of HR and employment law.  You will be a confident leader but not brusque, you will be an excellent communicator, but have a sympathetic ear.  You will show compassion when appropriate and above all you will have integrity.  An ability to delegate tasks and organise your own workload are imperative to this role.
