About the role

The clients at Putney are amazing, incredibly bonded to the team and are largely insured.

You will be working alongside an experienced and compassionate team including 2 vets, and fantastic clinical support team who have a passion for building strong bonds with their established client base. You will also have a part-time receptionist during the busy period of the day, to help take the pressure off from reception so you can focus on your clinical duties.

You will have the full support from a dedicated regional manager, and OOH care is provided by our Stone Lion 24-hour hospital just a 15 minute drive away.

Inclusive of your rota there is a weekend rotation, and 1 bank holiday at Stone Lion Hospital with time off in lieu.
