An excellent opportunity has now arisen for a Theatre Scrub Lead to join a well-established private clinic in Central London, on a permanent basis. 

The Role:

You must be a registered general nurse (RGN) for this role and must have experience in a surgical setting and supervisory or managerial experience. This is a team leader position, and you will be supported by the clinical coordinator to provide scrub supervision leadership over the theatre/scrub team. Applying candidates will need to be supernumerary and oversee anaesthetic/recovery in the absence of the lead. 


  • Line management and supervision of all grades of staff within the sphere of authority, acting as a clinical lead and expert to junior, non-registered, and less experienced staff.
  • Coordinate and manage own specialty and department as required. Liaise with surgeons and anaesthetists to assess requirements for future operating lists and ensure those requirements are met. 
  • Take the lead with planning, delivering and evaluation of patient care. 
  • Work with senior staff to identify and manage staff performance issues, including sickness absence, capability, and discipline. 
  • Participate in the process of recruitment, selection, and retention of staff. 

Surgical first assistants with supervisory experience will also be considered for this role.
