Full or Part Time Small Animal Assistant Vet – Bournemouth
Friendly & professional growing, family owned, group of nine practices
At Pet Practice we are an exciting, independent, growing veterinary group that’s been giving a fresh look to working in the veterinary sector for the past twelve years now. We are not a corporate focused on profit to the detriment of its clients and staff. With nine practices neither are we a small independent at risk from competition or takeover. We have the security of being a sizeable veterinary group but with the benefits and personal touch of being family owned. Independent is what we love and how we will remain. We do not lock our staff into working for us under the premise of joint venture and other hidden restrictions. At Pet Practice we lead the way in the packages we offer our staff and are proud that all the income we earn as a team is invested back into our staff and the facilities, they work in. We’ve led the way in the salaries we offer, led the way in the holiday our nurses and vets can take at up to six weeks per annum and schedule major refits on all our clinics every ten years to keep them fresh. Whilst an ongoing schedule of investment is of paramount importance to us, we continue to grow alongside this having added three new practices to our group during the bumpy last eighteen months.
Our staff’s loyalty is built around mutual respect and working with your requirements to create a job role that is right for you. No on-call and flexible rotas ensure your work life balance leaves you fresh and enthusiastic. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic we have proved ourselves to be a safe, efficient, and reliable business that has continued to grow by caring for both its staff and patients.

Our Bournemouth Vacancy:
Our lovely Bournemouth surgery is on the beautiful Dorset Blue Flag coastline. It has all the facilities you would expect of a modern practice including digital radiography, ultrasonography, an Idexx in-house integrated laboratory and dedicated surgical facilities. Less than two years ago it underwent a £150K refit to keep the facilities up to our high standards.
As we continue to grow, we need an additional dynamic vet with at least one years’ experience to join our team. They will be working alongside our Bournemouth clinical director, their assistant surgeons and our visiting orthopaedic team plus imaging consultant. In addition, there is always plenty of support from our fifteen vets and fifty staff across the group. We really do all act as a team, something we’re proud of.
