Job Details

Scarsdale Vets have been in the East Midlands for many years and have grown to be well-regarded and one of the largest providers of veterinary care locally, while maintaining the personal touch. We have 12 practices currently and have recently opened 3 new practices.

Scarsdale Vets has a principal site at Pride Park where we provide first opinion treatments plus referral services for our own clients and other practices. Additionally, we have our own dedicated night teams. The facilities at all our sites are contemporary and we have a culture of discovery to ensure we stay ahead of the latest findings and recommendations.

Teams at the 11 community practices are close knit as they run these smaller practices as if it’s their own business, creatively providing clinics and services relevant to the local area and the needs of our clients and their pets. Working together as a bonded team, we visualise you will become an integral part of the local community, trusted to provide the absolute best care and advice possible.

The Pride Veterinary Centre Hospital is a fast paced practice with exceptional specialist equipment in situ. There are a number of wards for hospitalised pets and we specifically keep cats and dogs in separate wards.
We retain a family feel to all our sites and we very much want you to be part of our family.

The Role
This Small Animal Vet role will be a mixed of branch work and work at our Pride hospital so it will involve the usual routine procedures from 1st opinion pet care and maintenance but there will also be frequent situations where the route to the prognosis could be an interesting journey.

There will be some sole charge work for this role, so you will need to be confident in making decisions and taking responsibility for treatments. Approx 1:6 weekends and no OOH.

Applicant Requirements
Client facing skills are integral for this 1st opinion Vet position, so we need applicants that really enjoy direct contact with the animal’s people. We have a regular returning customer base so naturally having the skills to build long term relationships is an asset.
