Job Details

Wycombe Marsh Vets for Pets is located in the picturesque county of Buckinghamshire on the edge of the Chiltern Hills, High Wycombe offers a blend of history, modernity, and natural beauty.

You will be joining a team of 19, made up of 4 vets, 3 RVN’s, 2 SVN’s, 4 VCA’s, 4 receptionists and a practice manager and assistant practice manager.
They are led by Julia Fry, who qualified in 1991 from RVC, and has been exclusively a small animal vet for many years. They pride themselves on being a close team who place a strong emphasis on team empathy.

You will have access to all of the excellent facilities including an operating theatre, X-ray machine, ultrasound machine and dental machine, as well as the support of an established and welcoming team, keen to nurture your skills and help you develop and grow with the business.

Our award-winning, 2-year programme is designed by vets to give new graduates like you, the best possible start to your practice career.

Joining one of our network of UK practices, you’ll train on the job with experienced Veterinary Partners and Practice Owners, at a pace that works for you. We’ll find you a role that suits you, in terms of location and culture fit. And, with Vets for Pets and Companion Care practices of all shapes and sizes across the country, there’s a perfect place for everyone!

With our support, and emphasis on your wellbeing, you can realise and maintain your full potential in an environment that encourages a healthy work/life balance too.
You’ll be supported from day one by a dedicated Vet GDP Advisor, as well as the graduate and clinical teams, and online by 1,300+ vets within our clinical community.

You’ll also be able to take paid leave to attend the tailored CPD events we hold. The high-quality events we deliver as part of the programme usually comprise subjects such as practical dentistry, practical surgery, radiography, dermatology, cardiology, and more.

As you build your confidence in caring for pets and their owners, you’ll grow your own client base and see continuity of cases with the support of your wider team. You will have a phased approach to sole charge and better still, when you’ve finished the programme there’s a career waiting for you, either with the practice you trained at or within our wider community/network.

As standard we offer all the benefits you’d expect from a major employer (pension, healthcare, paid memberships, life insurance, competitive salary etc.) plus a few more!

• 2-year programme, no financial/contractual tie-ins
• Competitive starting salary with reviews after each year on Programme
• Professional memberships paid - practice dependent
• Exclusive lifestyle and shopping discounts with up to 30% off at Pets at Home, Pet Plan insurance discount, cycle to work scheme and more
• Approximately 10 paid CPD days (clinical & non-clinical) per year
• Dedicated Vet GDP Advisor in practice and access to wellbeing support
• Fully funded London Vet Show tickets during the 2nd year on programme
• Access to our clinical academy for further development after programme completion
• Relocation and immigration support for overseas candidates - relocation packages from within or outside the UK, including visa sponsorship if wanted (we’re an A+ rated sponsor) - practice dependent

Pets just see people. 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.
