Our standalone practice in Maidstone is conveniently located for easy access to the beautiful surrounding countryside and beaches and we are also within easy reach of both Gatwick and Heathrow airports and the Eurostar. In addition, we also offer free onsite parking.
You will be joining a talented and friendly team made up of 2 vets, 1 business manager, 1 RVN head of patient care, 1 RVN, 3 student nurses, 4 patient care assistants, 1 head of client care who manages a team of 4 client care advisors. We hold a variety of interests within the team and one of our vets is about to start studying towards a Certificate in Medicine. We are hugely supportive of CPD and ongoing personal and professional development and we are happy to support the study towards certificate level. A particular interest in surgery would be wonderful but not essential!
We see a wide variety of cases in the practice and carry out all routine surgery as well as soft tissue and some basic orthopaedics. We have all of the usual toys including digital x-ray and ultrasound, and we will certainly consider the purchase of further specialist equipment should it benefit the team and practice.
You will need to be confident with all routine surgical and medical cases but perhaps most importantly, you will be a personable and approachable vet who enjoys building relationships with our lovely patients, clients and the wider team.
We will consider full or part time hours with a weekend rota of 1-in-3. There is minimal sole charge and no OOHs responsibility ensuring both a great work-life balance and the opportunity to bounce ideas around with colleagues.
