The Practice
The practice will be fitted with brand new equipment which will enable you to deliver top-class care to your patients. You will be supported by another vet as well as a supportive nursing team, all of whom are dedicated to their clients and patients.

Our client provides strong mentorship and support to help you develop your career and get the most satisfaction from your job. A dedicated support team leaves you free to devote your time to looking after your clients and patients.

Our client is offering a package worth between £50,000-£60,000 (depending on experience and capability), including:

• Accommodation or £6,600 accommodation allowance
• Vehicle or £2,500 vehicle allowance
• £1,500 CPD allowance with 2 days’ CPD leave, and in-house CPD training
• 4.5 day week
• VDS, RCVS and BVA fees paid
