Clinical Director required for maternity cover at Lamond Vets, Livingston, West Lothian.
Due to an upcoming maternity leave, we have an exciting opportunity for a fixed term Co-Clinical Director role to join our team here at Lamond Vets, starting September 2021. Working as part of a close-knit team you would be supported by another full-time Clinical Director and Practice Manager.
We are a busy RCVS accredited small animal practice with a motivated team of 30 staff. If you have a strong work ethic and positive attitude to life, we would love to meet you! Most of your week will be spent leading from the front on clinical duties, with approximately 0.5-1day per week spent on admin.
Our exceptional reputation over the past 66 years speaks for itself as our clients voted us “Best Scottish Vet” in 2018, 2019 and 2020. We support all interests and certificates currently held in the practice include Soft Tissue & Orthopaedic Surgery and ECC. We work in a bright, spacious purpose-built building. Our practice is particularly well equipped with surgical and diagnostic kit as we have a high proportion of clients seeking gold standard treatment. Our caseload is large and varied with many longstanding, loyal clients. We work closely with the Scottish SPCA and other local charities to perform surgeries, consultations, and legal casework.
We have a 30-strong motivated team with 10 Vets, 13 RVNs and 7 support team members.
We are looking for a confident all-rounder who has a positive, resilient attitude. The ideal candidate would be level-headed with excellent communication skills. Candidates need to be confident with all aspects of first opinion practice and previous management experience would be advantageous. Candidates must be MRCVS and a full UK driving license is useful but not essential.
