This role would be suitable for someone wishing to advance their career who is either studying towards a certificate or would like to do so and increase their skillset. We are a large company, so there are potential internal progression opportunities. We are a 100% small animal practice with a varied caseload, where you would have clinical freedom to fully work up and manage your cases and actively encouraged to develop your skills and bring new ideas to the practice.

The role is a permanent, full time position based on a 4-day week with a share of the Saturday rota and no out of hours. We offer an excellent benefits package including an attractive salary in excess of £50,000 for the right candidate. Part time applications will also be considered.
