Purchase Ledger / Accounts Clerk

The company

Gensmile is building a different kind of dental group providing quality dentistry and an enhanced experience for both patient and clinician.

The founding ethos of Gensmile is to work with dental practitioners who seek to be freed of the demands of running a business and instead want to be able to focus on delivering high quality dentistry to their patients.  We are committed to long-term partnerships with these clinicians.

Our aim is that each of our dental practices is a place where dental professionals want to build their careers and where patients receive a best-in-class experience with excellent clinical outcomes.

The company was founded in 2014, made its first acquisition in 2015, and is actively looking to grow through additional acquisitions and organic development of the 30 dental sites, and 5 dental laboratories it owns already, making this an exciting time to join the business.

The company has experienced rapid growth over the previous 5 years, growing from zero to circa £30 million turnover.  We expect this to continue, and therefore require employees who can contribute to this growth and develop their skills over time.

We are a dynamic company and believe work should be an enjoyable place to be.  We offer flexible working hours, with the core hours being between 9.30am and 4.30pm.
