At The Vet we believe in doing things differently for the benefit of pets, clients and our people. Join us to help us shape the future of vet care.

We understand how important it is to have a positive work life balance, which is why at the Vet you will only work 37 hours over 4 days and one weekend in four. We also don’t operate any out of hours practices or walk-in appointments so you know what to expect with your rota.

Our clinics are some of the best around. The space and facilities here will let you tackle a diverse caseload, building your clinical skills and helping more animals and their humans enjoy life together.

All our clinics and facilities are purpose-built, giving you everything you need to deliver a wide range of care under one roof. Each clinic has its own separate dental, x-ray, lab and ultrasound suites. Each also has least two operating theatres, six consulting rooms and an open, spacious prep area, as well as separate dog and cat recovery wards and walk-in isolation. We also have a cosy and comfortable staff room where you can relax during breaks and the team enjoys a free lunch together each Friday.

These facilities aren’t just a nice-to-have, they play a critical role in helping us to deliver industry-leading, gold standard care. Our clinics and the volume of customers we see mean that you can tackle a truly diverse case load, giving you the opportunity to strengthen and improve your skills and expertise. Orthopaedics, soft tissue surgery and internal medicine are just some of the clinical disciplines that we can offer – and working in multi-vet teams will help you feel confident when approaching challenging cases.

Being able to treat such a wide range of cases helps our vets to thrive and our CPD support helps consolidate and strengthen their learning to achieve gold standard. We invest up to £1500 and five days each year for our vets and £750 and three days a year for our nurses. We also fully fund further diplomas and certificates as well as covering registration and insurance fees.

There are no boundaries here and we encourage collaboration between our clinics and across the business.

Realise Your Potential

Realise Your Potential

Everyone’s career aspirations are different. We offer the very best facilities, training and career progression opportunities to help you realise your ambitions – whatever these may be. Providing unparalleled professional development support to help you reach your potential is one of the many things that sets us apart from traditional practice.

We believe that people thrive when they’re given support to focus on what matters to them. Along with everyone else at The Vet, we’ll give you a structured professional development programme and a dedicated line manager to oversee your professional growth. You’ll receive an appraisal every three months, giving you a valuable chance to receive constructive feedback and to voice your own ideas and opinions.

We’re a rapidly expanding business with exciting opportunities for career progression. We’ll give you the chance to take on more responsibility if you want it, along with leadership, business and management skills training, which we know is such an important part of modern practice. You’ll also have access to a diverse peer support network, with a business manager working alongside a clinical director in each clinic. We’re keen to hear from both experienced vets and those new to the profession – and we’ve just launched a brand new programme to help ambitious new and recent graduates fast-track their careers.

Working here will give you the chance to build new skills and take on new challenges, helping everyone to make the most of their abilities. If you’re a nurse, we’re passionate supporters of schedule 3 work. This means we give you priority to do challenging work including dental scale and polishes, nurse clinics, 2nd vaccinations, pre and post op checks, as well as a high level of involvement in client consultations. If you’re a vet, this means more time freed up to tackle more complex cases and for case management.

We invest in our team and offer generous CPD allowance to help you develop skills that you’re passionate about. This creates a thriving working environment where you can constantly improve and deliver consistent gold standard care. Our people say that The Vet’s support has helped them progress their careers in ways they never thought possible until working here.
