We’re looking for a talented and ambitious Centre Manager…could it be you?
The Exeter Dental Centre is a rapidly growing business located in the heart of Exeter city centre. We are a proud, family-owned private dental practice that provides advanced dentistry with a team approach to patient care. The Exeter Dental Centre has doubled its turnover within the first two years of current ownership and plans to expand within its current site. We also have exciting plans to grow in the surrounding areas and become a multisite practice with outlying clinics referring complex dental cases into the centre site.
We want to create a business we can be proud of which is different to the industry norm. So to make this happen, we need brilliant people who inspire and deliver change all around them. That’s why we’re looking for a talented and ambitious Centre Manager to join the family and help drive the business forward.
We take the development of our people very seriously. Partly because we know it’s a reason why great people want to join and stay at The Exeter Dental Centre, and partly because it makes sense for us to have a team of engaged, talented, high performing people at the top of their game. So learning and development is win-win all round.

Relocating to Devon
Devon is an attractive and beautiful county and a great place to live and work. Exeter’s baked from just the right mix of ingredients. Only 15 minutes from the seaside and the wild scenery of Dartmoor, it has a university to keep it on its toes, a lovely waterfront and some of the best property on the market right now. It is well connected with good rail and road links, as well as a busy airport and the city is served by a wealth of good schools.
The important stuff
For the right person we can offer a competitive salary of £28 to £30k per annum to be reviewed after the first year and as the company’s turnover and profits continue to grow. We know that there’s no point living in Devon if you can’t enjoy it, so our holidays are generous and we pride ourselves on our staff training and devlopment policy.
