  • Greet clients and their pets for appointments, be sensitive to their requirements and promote a professional image at all times
  • Comply with all policies and procedures within the surgery, including Health and Safety Regulations
  • Calculate and administer medications and keep accurate records
  • Assist the Veterinary Surgeon during surgical procedures
  • Clinical Coaching and support of student nurses (training not essential and will be provided).
