Enthusiastic Veterinary Surgeon with 3+ years’ experience (less experience considered for the right candidate) required to join our award-winning friendly team, at our Accredited Veterinary Hospital in Dudley and at our surrounding local branches (On the leafy edge of the West Midlands, but all within 30 mins of Birmingham City centre).

Priding ourselves on being family vets for family pets, we have constantly pushed the boundaries on delivering the highest pet care through the calibre and qualifications of our Vets and Nurses and through the friendliness and professionalism of our Client Care teams.
