Top job! Medical Lead

  • Part time
  • Sessional
  • Carberry Clinic, mostly remote
  • Closing 2nd April 2023

  • Advertised from 14th March 2023
  • 1-2 sessions per week (4-8 hours) £45 per hour.


There is an occupational requirement for the postholder to have an active Christian faith (under the Equality Act 2010).

Founded as a Christian Charity in 1983, HealthLink360 [SC000948] is Scotland's leading provider of support to missionaries, aid agency workers, medical relief teams and volunteers who undertake overseas work in challenging and often hostile environments. Additionally, we provide support here in Scotland to school groups preparing to travel, to the local community with counselling and working with Church organisations, assessing their candidates for Christian ministry.

Embracing our ethos of 'whole person care for global workers' HealthLink360 provides a unique service offering a comprehensive range of medical, psychological and travel health services both in person, at our travel clinic just outside Edinburgh, both on site and online.

HealthLink360 was born out of the personal experiences of its founders, the experience of those who travel internationally to work, often in intense and high-risk environments, only to return home physically or mentally fragile. We provide an expert level of care to our clients before they go, during their assignment and when they return.

We employ an experienced team of workers (a mix of contracted and sessional): doctors, travel nurses, clinical psychologists, counsellors and operational staff. We are regulated by Healthcare Improvement Scotland.

The Role

The role is 1-2 sessions per week (4-8 hours). It will be a hybrid model of working, mostly remote but in-person as certain tasks demand. Medical examinations will be performed at our Carberry clinic.

The role is split into two parts:

4 hours. The successful candidate will be responsible for leading six doctors on the team and offering medical advice to the managing director. Flexibility will be required to respond to emails or phone calls from colleagues during working hours on Tuesday to Friday. The medical lead will need to work in person at Carberry on occasions to attend meetings or to work face-to-face with the managing director.

4 hours maximum. In addition, the medical lead will perform occasional medical examinations on clients at our premises at Carberry. This will be in response to patient demand and will be remunerated at the same hourly pay rate.
