We have a great opportunity for an experienced, small animal vet to join our close-knit and supportive team. You will primarily work at our Alton practice (you may have to occasionally cover a shift at one of the other branches) giving you the opportunity to work-up your cases and have a varied workload. We believe that this aids in fostering a bonded relationship with our clients.

Work-life balance that works for you

We would welcome both full or part-time applicants. Typically, the hours for this role are 40 hours over 5 days per week, Monday to Friday, plus 1 in 3 Saturday mornings. There are no out-of-hours associated with this role however we occasionally look after our own in-patients - treatment checks which are optional and paid for. However, we understand that you have priorities outside of work therefore we are happy to discuss flexibility around the working days / hours.

Our Practices

We are a very well-established, 100% small animal RCVS accredited practice located right next to the beautiful South Downs National Park, less than 1 hour from the coast, access to London via train and easy access to Gatwick and Heathrow airport. We have three surgeries serving the communities around Alton, Bordon and Grayshott. We continually strive for excellence in management, medicine, surgery, diagnostic and service to enrich and lengthen the special relationship between people and their pets.

•    Separate cat and dog wards

•    Digital radiograph

Grayshott is our smallest clinic, based in the centre of a picturesque village. We only offer consultations at our Grayshott practice.

Our Team and Culture

Working in a Vet practice is a big part of our lives, and we want to enjoy coming in to work and to feel appreciated by colleagues and clients. We have a supportive and committed team of 1 Clinical Director, 6 Vets, 5 RVNs, 4 SVNs and 7 Receptionists in our 3 well-equipped surgeries on the Hampshire/Surrey border.

Our Clinical Director, Annedine joined us as from South Africa initially as a Veterinary Surgeon in 2010, progressing to CD in 2023. Annedine has a strong interest in Veterinary Medicine and is super supportive of the whole team.
