Job Details

We are looking for an enthusiastic vet to join our team in Winnersh. We are an established practice, and we pride ourselves on our great reputation and loyal client base.

Being part of The Vet Group allows us to benefit from their support but at the same time be able to have autonomy, clinical freedom and decisions on how and what services we provide.

Weekends are 1:4 Saturdays only. No OOH.

The Team and Interests
We have a friendly team of three vets and six nurses. Two of our vets have been with us since graduating (classes of 2019 and 2021), and are both very happy to chat through how supportive the team in Winnersh have been. We have vets with both a surgical and medical bias, and an ophthalmology certificate holder so we see a varied case load. Therefore, this role would suit a vet with either a medical or surgical bias - or somewhere in between!

Orthopaedic and soft tissue surgeries are often undertaken in house, as we have a vet with an interest in this as well as a good working relationship with visiting peripatetic surgeons.

We are also part of the RWAF-recommended rabbit friendly vet list, and strive to provide the best care for our rabbit and small mammal patients, as well as working closely with a local hedgehog rescue centre (plenty of opportunities to develop your skills with prickly patients!) To further this, one of our nurses will soon be starting their advanced nursing program in small mammals and wildlife.

The practice is well-equipped, including dental xray, ultrasound, multi-parameter monitoring and in-house Idexx haematology and biochemistry. Additionally, we have recently invested in brand new ophthalmology equipment (slit lamp, tonometer and surgical loupes) which enables us to work up many of our eye cases in-house, undertake more complex ophthalmology surgeries and take second-opinion cases.

Personal development
We truly encourage personal development, and are happy to support a particular interest through CPD or study for certificates, and invest in equipment to support this for the right individual.

  • Salary range £40- £60k DOE
  • No OOH or Sundays
  • CPD allowance & funded certificates
  • Generous holiday
  • RCVS fees, VDS cover, BVA membership
  • Pets At Home reward hub
  • Pets At Home discount in store and at The Groom Room
  • Protected Admin time built into the diary

Pets just see people. They aren’t biased and they don’t discriminate. We take our inspiration from pets, and we value and respect difference in all its forms. Our aim is to reflect the diversity of the communities we operate in, and every colleague can help us achieve this. We encourage our people to be themselves so even if your skills and experience don’t perfectly align, if you think you can make a unique contribution through your values and behaviours, we want to hear from you!


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.
