This is a thriving and well-respected practice with high clinical standards and a large client base. Established in 2001, they are situated with fantastic transport links from all directions. A friendly and experienced team of 10 vets [2 JVPS], 12 RVNs [1 JVP], 1 practice manager [JVP], and 17 support staff with a low staff turnover. They enjoy 15-minute appointments as standard, longer for second opinion or complicated cases at their modern, air-conditioned, large practice with an imminent expansion planned to allow for the increasing workload and colleague numbers. They have all the equipment of a first opinion modern practice including digital x-ray, ultrasound, multiparameter, blood pressure machine. [endoscopy and diathermy planned post expansion]. There is an enthusiastic team and encouragement to work up all cases to a high level with support from colleagues when needed. The luxury of always having 6 vets per day to discuss cases. No sole charge at all. They have junior vets within the team and encourage mentoring and support and are also a nurse training practice. An expansion is in the pipeline to provide a spacious and comfortable colleague area away from the hustle and bustle of the day; expanding and upgrading the clinical areas and kennelling; increasing the consult rooms from 4 to 7 to allow space for all colleagues to work effectively.

You must be a team player and enjoy working cases up to a high level and provide a high standard of both patient and customer care. They are looking for a vet who is able and confident with all routine surgeries and first opinion consults; certificate holders are also encouraged to join the team. There is a flexible rota with plenty of days off to allow a healthy work-life balance with no OOH and a very good relationship with a local OOH provider who is only 5 minutes away. Weekends are on a rota of 1 in 3, shorter days than in the week, and always 4 vets on duty.
