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.
Skills and experience:
The ideal candidate will have an excellent work ethic and a friendly understanding attitude towards clients, as client interaction and communication is key.
The ability to work without the need for supervision is important as the sole charge is required at the weekends, although plenty of support is available during the week from our experienced team to help develop skills and knowledge.
Special interests are welcome and encouraged!
We welcomed Aston Clinton to the Medivet family in 2021!
The practice is situated in the pleasant countryside not too far from London and the airports at Luton and Heathrow.
The practice is excellently equipped including 3 theatre suites, a dental suite, digital x-ray, ultrasound, in-house laboratory, endoscopy, and separate dog and cat wards. We also have our own boarding kennels, cattery, and dog grooming parlour on site which makes for an interesting place to work.
