Our surgery boasts state of the art equipment including Digital x-ray, ultrasound, and orthopaedic equipment. We enjoy a varied caseload of small animal work with our team sharing an interest in feline and rabbit medicine, whilst also having the scope to perform additional in-house surgical procedures such as orthopaedics and complex soft tissue surgery.

Our dynamic and supportive team of is made up of a wide variety of experience - our Clinical Lead has 16+ years’ experience in a variety of clinical environments and our Head Nurse has 30 years nursing experience. We pride ourselves on offering our colleagues a happy, fun and supportive working environment as well as providing the best standard of care to pets and clients.

Our surgery is purpose built to deliver the highest clinical standards and provides excellent facilities, giving you access to all the equipment and space you need to care for your patients. We already have a loyal client base with the potential for further growth, and cases can be worked up locally.
Along with a salary up to £55,000 FTE, we offer all the benefits you’d expect from a major employer (pension, healthcare, paid memberships etc.) plus a few more, such as development opportunities and exclusive lifestyle and shopping discounts (up to 30% off at Pets at Home). We’re also happy to provide relocation packages from within or outside the UK, including visa sponsorship if needed (we’re an A+ rated sponsor).

This is a part time 20-30-hour position working 1 in 5 Saturdays and there’s no on call or OOH requirement. You should be confident in routine surgical and medical cases and comfortable with sole charge.

We’re conveniently situated in central Paisley allowing for easy access via public transport. We are also surrounded by a number of fantastic cafes and restaurants as well as Barshaw park where you can enjoy the peace and tranquillity on your lunch break.

Conveniently we are a 20-minute train journey and 30-minute drive from the centre of Glasgow which is known for its colourful character, industrial history and incredible art and music scene.
Pets just see people. And just like pets, we embrace everyone’s differences. We work to break down barriers, attract and develop diverse talent, and create a culture that allows everyone to be the best they can be.

Our diversity and inclusion vision is that everyone is welcome and feels part of our business.

Locally owned practices with a world of support

At Vets for Pets we’re a network of practices that are owned and managed by the practice owners that run them. Because they’re locally owned, each practice has the freedom to serve patients and clients the way it thinks is best. 

But crucially, being locally-owned also means enjoying a truly team-spirited atmosphere. We want all our colleagues to build lasting relationships with practice owners and team members as well as patients and clients.

And because we’re also part of a wider group, you’ll get all the support you need when you need it. That means state-of-the-art facilities, high quality CPD, financial stability and a real sense of job security.

With our framework, we’ve made it simpler and easier for you to help patients and clients live happier, healthier lives together. It’s about making the most of your expertise and bringing this to life in practise while being safe in the knowledge that you’re looked after too. Simply put, we offer locally owned practices with a world of support.

Flexibility & Wellbeing
You tell us which hours you want to work, and we’ll do everything we can to make it happen. With us, you could enjoy a better work-life balance where flexibility and wellbeing come first.

Training & Development
We offer great training programmes, plus fully funded CPD, leadership courses and access to our group’s learning curriculum. We’ll also support you if you’re interested in owning a practice. With our wealth of resources, it’s easy to build your skills and develop your career.

Local Practices
With us, no two practices are the same. We’re deeply rooted in our local communities and we want you to really get to know your patients and clients locally.

Being part of the Pets At Home Group
Being part of Vets for Pets means you’ll be part of our network of locally owned practices. Our practices are located across the country and are owned and run by our Joint Venture Partners (JVPs). Our Joint Venture Partnership model is unique and gives everyone the best of both worlds. Working within one of our practices you’ll get to work with the JVP who has the clinical freedom and autonomy to do things their own way.

As we’re part of a large respected organisation you’ll also enjoy the benefits of being part of a wider PLC Group. This means we can give you greater stability and job security during these uncertain times and beyond. 

What’s more, we’ve worked hard to make sure everyone in our group can take part in a fun, friendly, professional and inclusive culture that allows you to bring your whole self to work and be at your very best.
