We are a successful and growing first opinion small animal practice. We pride ourselves on providing care to our clients and patients to the same standard that we expect for our own pets. With full clinical freedom, we deliver high standards of best medicine.
We have a strong focus on teamwork and work-life balance. We support Just Culture in a very supportive environment. We continuously and actively update our policies and procedures, to follow the current evidence based veterinary medicine, with all the team encouraged to get involved. We are RCVS and ISFM accredited. We promote continuing training and support anyone wanting to be the best version of themselves. Mostly, we love to work as a team and have fun!
Working in a Vets4pets practice gives colleagues the advantage of working in an individually owned practice, with the family feel we all love, while also being part of a larger family with all the security, support and excellent package and benefits that provides.
Job Specification
Full time colleagues work a 40-hour week, with one full weekday off. One hour fully paid lunch break. Long weekend off after working a weekend. Birthday off.
Vets work 1:3 weekends: Saturday 9am to 5pm, Sunday 10am to 4pm. After working a weekend, Vets will receive, as time back, Thursday and Friday off the following week (giving a nice long weekend!). This means 20 hours back are given after only working 14 hours! This covers for any extra time one may work. It works out that all full-time colleagues are paid for 40 hours a week, but actually on average work 38 hours.
Bank holidays we open as Sunday hours, 10am to 4pm. The bank holidays are shared evenly between the vets. At the end of each year, bank Holidays and weekends for full following calendar year are planned, allowing vets to plan their year.
We run 20-minute consultation appointments, this gives us good time with pet owners, helping us deliver our standards of care. Vets have 1 hour lunch break and 1 hour admin time every day. Though we close at 7pm, our last booked appointment is at 6pm. This allows vets to also have time at the end of the day, to catch up on phone calls, writing clinical notes, etc.  Vets all get shared consultation and surgical time; depending on their interest this may be more one way or the other, or split half a half.
No out of hours. We have an out of hours provider, which we divert practice phones to, when we are closed.

Benefits we offer

  • Salary is dependent of experience and following SPVS guidance
  • Holidays: 5.6weeks holiday per year, which increased to 6.6 weeks after working two calendar years (January to December)

But crucially, being locally-owned also means enjoying a truly team-spirited atmosphere. We want all our colleagues to build lasting relationships with practice owners and team members as well as patients and clients.

And because we’re also part of a wider group, you’ll get all the support you need when you need it. That means state-of-the-art facilities, high quality CPD, financial stability and a real sense of job security.

With our framework, we’ve made it simpler and easier for you to help patients and clients live happier, healthier lives together. It’s about making the most of your expertise and bringing this to life in practise while being safe in the knowledge that you’re looked after too. Simply put, we offer locally owned practices with a world of support.
