Career Start GP Posts

An exciting opportunity to enhance and develop a career in General Practice, through an innovative and flexible scheme.

 £75,972 for a 40hr wk

Interested in General Practice, but looking for a little more?

Looking for some extra support while you establish yourself in your career? Do you want a chance to grow your experience in a specialism while working in a practice? Keen on a career in independent practice, but happy for the safety net of a guaranteed job with full employment rights?

Perhaps a Career Start job is the right move for you....

There are up to 8 of these exciting posts available in Tayside!

Part time options are available - minimum 6 sessions

(1 session = 4 hours)

These posts are for 2 years. They offer a combination of learning and development opportunities, supporting First 5 GPs to develop a breadth and depth of experience, additional skills, and the opportunity to work within an expanded multi-disciplinary team delivering new models of care. The specialty areas provisionally available this year are as below. Some posts are subject to funding being finalised and so applicants will be asked to give their top 3 options. Some posts are only available in certain areas of Tayside.

Career Start Posts will be available throughout Dundee, Angus and Perthshire although this will be practice dependant and not all specialty elements will be available in all the areas. They will be shaped around the individual applicant as part of their job plan and the applicant will have input into this process.

In addition to working in a matched practice with dedicated specialty sessions, we are keen to offer additional postgraduate training and development opportunities matched to the posts available. There are weekly protected development sessions for this.


The purpose of the scheme is to consolidate and develop the skills and confidence of recently qualified GPs, offering the opportunity to develop experience and skills to meet the needs of the GP of the future within a supportive environment. Overall the scheme aims to support the development of GP's as leaders who have a strong commitment to the values and vision of NHS Tayside, working as an integral part of a multi-disciplinary team across a single system to support our population to live longer, healthier lives at home.

The Career Start GP will work in a host practice developing both general and specific skills relevant to General Practice work. This will include all duties normally carried out in practice, including the opportunity to attend practice meetings, helping to gain further understanding of general practice as a business.

In addition to a named GP in practice, a Clinical Supervisor will be appointed in your specialist area to help you determine your specific educational objectives. To support your leadership journey, you will also have the opportunity to be matched with a patient safety fellow, learning more about quality and safety, and joining the rapidly growing network with opportunities for regional, national and international development in this area.

You should be educated to MBChB or equivalent, fully registered with the GMC with a licence to practice, and hold a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) or equivalent. Excellent communication skills, counseling and feedback skills are also essential as well as the ability to travel to various locations.

Closing date for applications Friday 25th June 2021

Successful applicants will be expected to start from August 2020 onwards for 2 years though the start date can be flexible.

Interviews will be held in July 2021
