The Practice:

Our client is a leading veterinary charity providing low-cost veterinary care, whilst at the same time promoting responsible pet ownership. The practice currently employs 7 Vets, 8 Nurses and 6 VCAs.

The Candidate:

Ideally, you will have more than 1-year experience as this role would suit a competent surgeon who has previously managed a team. There will be some line management responsibility in this role so you should be a good communicator and work well as part of a team. An interest or specialism in orthopaedics would be of particular interest. You should also be approachable, friendly and compassionate.
