The George Veterinary Group

About Us

Our proudly independent Veterinary Hospital team seeks a vet with a minimum of 2 years' experience to join our 18-strong vet team. This would suit both full-time or part-time applicants.  


In a stimulating and supportive working environment, we encourage clinical freedom and case continuity, helping us to deliver a high standard of care. Support is always available from our friendly and approachable team, which has a wide depth of knowledge, with certificate holders and others working towards the qualification, as well as visiting specialists. Based in Malmesbury, we are part of the proudly independent The George Veterinary Group with a set of values which is evident in everything we do: Compassion, Respect, Integrity, Sustainability, Progression and Care.  


We are in a beautiful part of the country and blessed with both rural surroundings and historic towns – Malmesbury is the oldest borough in the UK, steeped in history with its Abbey and is just a few miles from Tetbury, Cirencester and within close proximity of Bristol and Bath.


We value the care our colleagues bring to both our patients and each other. We have a very well equipped Veterinary Hospital and 3 local branches. With a 4-day week and 1:15 OOH rota, we place a strong emphasis on work-life balance. Our superb nursing and administration team includes our own dedicated night nurses, ensuring high professional standards of care and support both day and night.


You will have access to 5 days and £1750 CPD allowance (FTE) with RCVS and BSAVA memberships paid. We actively encourage and support certificates.  


As part of a larger Group with, farm, pig and equine departments, our “George Forum” meets regularly, with representation from each department, to give feedback and progress new ideas for the practice and improve our working environment. Some of the more recent improvements driven by the forum have been an enhanced maternity pay package, additional childcare payments, and top-up support for those attending jury service commitments. Being independent, our teams work closely with the directors of the practice, so we are able to act quickly.  


We have a Sustainability group which currently holds a silver accreditation from Investors in the Environment – check out our sustainability page on the website. This includes making a difference in our local community.


We also enjoy nominating colleagues for our monthly Going the Extra Mile award to recognise those who really make our roles easier. We care!


We are a social group and love an opportunity to get together, either through wellbeing events or charitable endeavours.  Our Christmas and summer parties are a big hit with the team and their families.  


Successful Candidate


Applicants should have a minimum of two years’ small animal experience.  This opportunity would also suit a more experienced clinician looking for that ideal job to fulfil any professional ambitions.
