The Practice:

Our client is big enough to offer award-winning care, facilities, and expertise for much-loved pets, small enough to care for pets and their owners as unique individuals and support their local community too.

Priding themselves on being at the heart of veterinary excellence, they have constantly pushed the boundaries on delivering the highest pet care through the calibre and qualifications of Vets and Nurses and through the friendliness and professionalism of their Client Care teams. This has meant that they have continually reinvested back into the Black Country to fund improvements and extensions over the years. Alongside this we can also offer you:

  • Access to state of the art diagnostic equipment, including CT, and 11 operating theatres
  • Diverse and interesting cases as well as a feline-friendly hospital
  • Support of 15 vets, 20 RVNs and the Client Care team on a ratio of 1:5

  • The role will be predominantly based at Dudley Hospital although will require some cover of shifts at their local surrounding branches.  
  • Their Veterinary team consists of some highly skilled clinicians with Certificates in many areas including cardiology, medicine, surgery, dermatology, soft tissue, orthopaedics, and more. Due to the cases they undertake, nurses assist with some complex procedures and are able to work within an advanced veterinary nursing niche. 
  • They can offer a good social life too for those who want to get involved; lots of friendships and comradery, which all makes for a great work-life balance.

In return, our client is offering a competitive salary of up to £28,000 p/a (reflective of experience) and benefits that include:

  • Pension
  • RCVS and VDS fees are paid by the practice
