We are a well-equipped diagnostic led practice with digital radiography, dental radiography, a dedicated laboratory, access to ultrasonography and endoscopy equipment and fully-equipped theatre.

We see a wide and varied case load with many insured pet owners looking for gold standard of care that we strive to deliver. We offer 15 minute appointments with extended consults for complicated cases.

Appointment times are usually 8:30am - 11:30am and 4:30pm - 7pm. The diary is organised in a way to ensure adequate time for urgent/emergency cases, catch up, phone calls, surgeries and breaks. We have many two-vet days which increases our availability for our ever-growing clientele and allows the vets to communicate and support each other.

Full time salary package up to £57,369 per annum depending on experience to include:

  • 5 weeks' annual leave plus bank holidays 
  • 4 weeks' paid sabbatical (after each 5 years of service)
  • Enhanced Maternity and Paternity Pay

  • Access to wide range of discounts for days out, high street and holidays.
  • 100% attendance bonus schemes
  • 1 day 'Pet'ernity Leave

We also offer relocation allowances should you move more than 40 miles from your current home address.

We can also support Certificates of Sponsorship for a Tier 2 (General) Visa if you meet the criteria and are eligible to register as a veterinary surgeon with the RCVS upon arrival in the UK.


West Green is a lovely practice and has become an active part of the local community! We also work with local charities including All Dogs Matter, C4 and Dogs Trust.

The clinic is situated near Seven Sisters Tube in North London, opposite Downhills Park which has a great café! 

The team consists of a HRVN, SVN and two PCAs. Our team is very much like a family who support each other and pull together. We have a wide range of knowledge across our dedicated team and believe sharing opinions and ideas and regular meetings to discuss cases, outcomes and problems promotes openness, teamwork and a healthy working environment.

West Green feeds into our 24-Hour Hospital in Hendon where all out of hour care is managed by our dedicated night team and patients can be hospitalised, with access to CT and MRI. 


We’re a family of passionate veterinary professionals committed to providing truly exceptional care.

We’re always looking for people who aspire to stand out in their field, and it’s this vision and enthusiasm that forms the foundation of how we work.

In everything we do, we work together and look out for each other. We’re all working towards the same goal: exceptional care.

Our people support each other within practices and across regions, and our clinicians work closely with our Support Centre colleagues – forming one team made of many teams. We work hard together but socialise, too. We’re proud that our community fosters strong bonds and friendships.

All our people are warmly encouraged to get involved in shaping the business, to consider becoming partners, or move into management roles. Every day, there’s a chance to have an impact on this business in its exciting growth phase.

Search our opportunities and apply today to become part of our family.
