Job Details

southcrest pic 9We are seeking an enthusiastic veterinary surgeon to join our team of friendly vets, nurses and receptionists.

The Practice
We are a busy, long established, RCVS-accredited, independent small animal veterinary practice. The practice is a single site in the busy town of Redditch, within 45 minutes of Stratford-upon-Avon, Birmingham, Worcester and the Cotswolds.  Our main case load consists of dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs but we also see a huge variety of exotic mammals, reptiles and birds as one of our vets has a special interest in these fascinating creatures. Knowledge and experience of exotic pets is welcomed but not essential. There is plenty of opportunity for support and training to provide ongoing development

Our ethos is to provide a high standard of supportive and compassionate care to our clients and their pets. Our 15 minute consults allow us to spend more time with our clients, focusing on quality rather than quantity.  We encourage our vets to work cases up to a high standard, allowing clinical and professional freedom. We support each other clinically and case discussions are positively encouraged as part of a culture of support and collaboration.

We have infusion pumps to support our hospitalised animals and two fully equipped dental machines. We have separate cat, dog and exotics wards. There are two spacious theatres for operating and three good sized consulting rooms.

We have an amazing long-serving, hardworking team of nurses and receptionist who are friendly, helpful and well accomplished. There is always a friendly face or a spare hand to help out. We also have a regular visiting ophthalmologist.
