Become a Successful Chiropractor at Life Chiropractic
Required skills and experience:
You’ll need to have completed a 4-year degree or postgraduate master’s course recognised by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). You will also need to be registered with the GCC before you can work as a chiropractor. Positions at Life Chiropractic Clinics would suit both experienced chiropractors and graduates.
Our new starter graduate scheme offers the perfect place to launch your career. We offer an initial two-week training schedule to help your transition from a college clinic setting to your new working life. The training will be delivered by your dedicated mentor with the addition of support by our experienced and successful chiropractic and clinical team.
About Life Chiropractic Clinics:
Established in 1991 our first clinic opened with the ethos that chiropractic care should be available to better the lives of those living within our local communities. The ethos continues to remain at heart of the business and we are proud of our four large clinics which are situated in highly visible locations across Essex.
The awareness and demographic of individuals seeking our care has changed over the past 25 years as the demand for conservative and non-invasive care of the surrounding communities increase. Our continued endeavour is to offer the highest standards of patient care through proven conservative healthcare methods.
