Surgery Information / Job Description

Exciting opportunities have become available for vets to join our friendly and experienced team at Barry Vets4Pets. Due to vet relocating we have both full and part time hours available.

Our partner and veterinary surgeon, Sylvia Annies, qualified in Hannover and has a wealth of experience spanning over 31 years. Her supportive team consists of another 3 vets, 2.5 RVNS and a strong team of 6 receptionists.

The practice has the usual tools like digital x-rays, doppler blood pressure monitor, full in-house lab, and ultrasound scanner and enjoys a very varied case load caring for dogs, cats, rabbits and all sorts of small furries. A small number of birds, reptiles and fish are also seen by the practice but experience with these is not a necessity.

We are situated in Barry, South Wales, close to the vibrant capital of Wales, Cardiff, and with the amazing beaches of Barry Island nearby. The Brecon Beacon National Park with its beautiful mountains, valleys and waterfalls are also in easy reach. The surgery is positioned within a Retail Park at the waterfront in Barry overlooking Barry Island, with excellent parking, good connections for bus and train travel and a variety of shops.

Person Specification

You would be welcomed by a friendly team with the aim of providing great, caring veterinary service to their patients and clients within a work place you love to get up for each morning and have fun at work.

The surgery is open 7 days a week, but you would only be expected to work 1 in 3 weekends. The package contains a great salary for the right person, support with relocating if required, a pension scheme, generous CPD allowance (financially and time wise), your birthday off in addition to 5 weeks or more of annual leave and no OOH work. You should be able to work independently and be confident in sole charge.


If you would like to join our winning team and you share our passion for delivering outstanding pet healthcare and great customer service, then we would love to hear from you.

Meet Vets4Pets

We put pets first

Beyond all else, we’re committed to animal health and welfare, and we absolutely put pets first. The most powerful partnerships we have are with pets and their owners. This is at the heart of what we do and always will be.

Vets4Pets Northampton Wins Vet Wellbeing Award

Colleague mental health and wellbeing have always been highly important to Jenny Millington and Sally Courtney of Vets4Pets Northampton. So much so, that during the past 12 months, they and their colleagues have implemented a number of fantastic initiatives to support in this area. These efforts have resulted in the practice recently receiving the 2019 Vet Wellbeing Award, medium-sized practice category, from the Society of Practising Vets (SPVS), in partnership with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons’ (RCVS) Mind Matters Initiative.

We help our nurse colleagues thrive

We know first-hand the tremendous contribution vet nurses make to the smooth running of a practice and to animal health and welfare. We’re therefore committed to recognising and celebrating these contributions and to providing our nurse colleagues with learning opportunities specific to them. Our annual Vet Nurses Conference (a Vets4Pets-only event) offers a full day of industry-leading CPD.

We are very much aiming to be an association where people can seek support for themselves and others and where employers and groups and other associations can seek support from us regarding the promotion of diversity and inclusion.
