We can also offer a relocation package in the UK and overseas, this will be based on individual circumstances and distance.

If you are currently working towards a certificate we can support you in the buy-out with full financial support. Or if you would like to start a certificate Medivet will cover the cost.  


The practice sees a varied caseload and is a training practice for nurses and vets training on our Graduate Support Programme. The practice is a 24-hour Hospital and is the main centre in the region.

Experience working in an environment where colleagues support you by sharing skills and knowledge to give our patients the best outcomes. Your team colleagues hold certificates in Dermatology and ECC and one is an experienced ultrasonographer.
