of a 2 year contract with remuneration being 36-40% commission depending on
level of experience. Given the existing high and growing demand for services
and current rates, your finalcial rewards will be high. This offer is inclusive

negotiated for longer term contracts. The surgery is open 8am to 7pm Monday
