Permanent Veterinary Surgeon - Manchester

You might not have heard about them yet – they’re the only Community Interest veterinary group in the UK. They believe that a lot of pet owners are struggling to afford veterinary care, and they know there is another way. Not-for-profit veterinary care means that, instead of maximising profits, they want to maximise the care they can provide to their patients, owners, and staff. If you love your job but don’t feel like you are making a difference, this could be the right employer for you.

Type: Small Animal

Location: Manchester

Practice: Their business model means that they see a lot of interesting cases, but they also need to see a lot of those cases in order to maintain operating profit. You’ll probably see more emergencies than preventative care. They are constantly evaluating ways to safeguard their employees when it comes to their mental health. They offer an employee assistance program that allows you to access mental health support from a team of specialised professionals, along with a 24/7 online GP.
