Job Details

Clinical Lead
The Rowe Veterinary Group
Salary up to £73,000 depending on experience

We are looking for an experienced vet who has a strong ability to lead and teach to join our fantastic team. You will be driven by improving the clinic, developing vets and driving results. As Clinical Lead, you will be responsible for the delivery and driving of clinical standards and activities at the Wotton branch. You will work closely with the Group Clinical and Practice Directors and our team of seven Clinical Lead Vets to ensure the group continues to perform exceptionally both as a growing business but also as a Group that drives clinical excellence. You will be a key player in the day-to-day management of the Group. We are looking for someone confident in guiding and coaching clinical colleagues and someone keen to improve their own professional knowledge and experience continually.

About Rowe Veterinary Group

We have six veterinary practices in the North Bristol area. Our 24-hour hospital is located in Bradley Stoke, and we have branch practices at Yate, Thornbury, Winterbourne, Wotton-under-Edge and our cat-only clinic in Brimsham.
We have 200+ staff including around 50 vets, with multiple certificate holders in various disciplines and an attached referrals division.

You will be based at our Wotton Branch which is a well-established, thriving practice with a team of nine vets.

About the Team and Culture

Wotton is a 2.5 vet practice with 3.5 FTE nurses all of whom are  very experienced. It is a lovely practice in the heart of the countryside allowing you to bring your dog to work and go for rural lunchtime walks. It has the feel of a rural practice with a very friendly team and loyal clients but provides the high level clinical care and client experience which Rowe is known for. It has an excellent ultrasound machine, X-ray, gastroscope, multiparameter monitoring and dental X-ray. This is alongside an on-site neurologist with MRI and a radioactive iodine unit which would allow exploration of clinical interests in neurology or feline medicine. The practice is backed up by our tier 3 hospital where we provide our own out of hours service with an ambulance collecting patients from Wotton twice daily.

Our Ideal Vet 

The successful candidate must have extensive experience in a large, busy first opinion practice. You will have a passion for first-opinion work and be a strong leader to ensure clinical excellence and direction are being driven from within. Previous experience in a leadership role or as a senior vet would be very desirable.
