braidThe Practice
Braid Vets has been providing care to Edinburgh’s pets since 1967, primarily at Mayfield Road but also at two branches at Leith Walk and Dalkeith. Having established the first private Veterinary Hospital in Scotland in 1990, we continue to strive to provide high quality companion animal care across all disciplines. Braid set up its own OOH emergency service, “e-vets”, in 1998 and provides this service to nine other local practices.

Location
Known as ‘Auld Reekie’, Edina, Athens of the North and ‘Britain's Other Eye’. Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. A lively city in a fantastic position. Built around a safely extinct volcano, between green hills and blue sea; there’s only one Edinburgh.

The Role
We have an exciting opportunity for a Clinical Director to join our well-established small animal practice.

The successful candidate will have previous management experience and be able to demonstrate strong leadership skills, enabling them to be responsible for the management functions of the practice, as well as providing back up for the clinical rota as required. These will include:

  • Line management of the clinical team
  • Recruitment and retention
  • Promoting best practice and customer care
  • Identifying areas of potential business growth
  • Planning and implementation of practice development
  • Setting and implementing practice budgets
  • Supporting and developing colleagues, acting as a mentor
  • Creating and maintaining a positive image within the local community

Successful Candidate

The successful candidate will work alongside another Clinical Director and be supported by the Practice Manager. You will need someone to be an excellent communicator, who thrives on positive interactions with clients and their pets, and with an aptitude and desire to manage and lead a high performing veterinary practice.

We are looking for someone who will manage Braid’s continued evolution, will maintain the extremely good reputation, and will help to steer the highly skilled team to continue to improve on the level of care and service that the practice provides.

The Package

Healthshield, cycle to work scheme and other flexible benefits available.

CPD funded and development encouraged.

Closing Date: Wednesday 25th November 2020.
