Jen, Louise and Karla our practice owners are happy to meet vets that require flexibility; be this 2-4 days per week, a consulting only role, part-time while completing a certificate etc. Offering you the real possibility of a great work life balance!

Bolton is a well organised, popular first opinion practice with a large following and a varied and interesting caseload.

Our high standards of care mean we have friendly, loyal clients and one of the highest client retention rates for Vets4Pets.

“The people who work at Bolton Vets4Pets truly make the practice. We are a close knit team despite our ever growing staff and clientele. It is an open and supportive place to work at, where we're constantly learning new things from each other. It is a fast paced environment and there is rarely a boring day. I fell very lucky to have started my career with Bolton Vets4Pets with such a great team and support system.

Our work-life balance values are displayed in numerous ways via our daily schedules. Lunch break guaranteed, with time specifically put in the diary for catching up, calls, and emergencies. The practice team, led by our Practice Owner Jen, can offer part time hours or full time hours for you to work alongside a very settled team of 4 vets and additional clinical team of RVN’s and an excellent reception team. In order to help you enjoy everything this area has to offer, you will work within a 1 in 4 weekend rota, Saturday only from 9am to 12 noon sole charge with 2 RVN’s and 2 receptionists in the practice and no OOH.

Jen offers a competitive salary of up to £60,000 dependant on your experience (FTE).

Jen is also very passionate about supporting all her colleagues to achieve their veterinary career goals, including certificate sponsorship and a healthy CPD budget. With a surgical Certificate Holder in practice you can be supported in this and many other specialisms in their wonderful stand-alone practice.

Bolton is a family friendly city and has ranked as one of the happiest places to live in the Northwest. The town is in close proximity to both Manchester and Liverpool, under an hour from the Peak District, one hour from Leeds, under 2 hours from the Lake District and Snowdonia National Park in Wales. The cost of living is very attractive, especially for those keen to step on the property ladder, as residents enjoy a higher standard of living that would ordinarily cost much more in other parts of the UK. Those with school aged children can enjoy a good standard of education and access to some great Colleges and Universities in nearby cities.
