GROUP OPERATIONS MANAGER
Hi, I’m Craig, I am the Operations Manager for Quality Dental Group, I predominantly deal with the operational aspect of the four practices within the group, and although I could be at any one of these locations I always maintain a close and accessible relationship with everyone across the group. I ensure that all practices conform to a minimum set of standards with the aim to provide high quality dental services to everyone.
I have been working directly within the health care industry for just over 5 years, prior to this I worked within the IT industry where in 2006 I was part of a small division heading the launch of a nationwide venture to roll out IT Consumer services within the UK, following the success of this I then became Regional Technical Trainer responsible for the training of both new and existing IT Field Engineers in both Technical knowledge and customer service skills. In 2009 the massive success of the IT Consumer Service and ever-expanding services, the need for improved structure became apparent, I then became Regional Implementation Trainer, where between myself and an implementation and development team we developed and deployed a range of new and improved services, operational improvements and customer values on a national scale including training new and existing technicians.
Once completed I felt the need to seek a new and changeling role. Having already had some experience within health care (Mainly ICT) I knew this industry would provide the challenges and a wealth of knowledge that I was seeking, which brings me to where I am today.
At present I am studying for my Prince2 Foundation and Practitioner and my goal is to become a Fellow (FMCI) Member within the next 5 years.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, track days, racing and karting and Golf. I am a passionate follower of Formula 1 and enjoy Rugby.
