About the Position:

With a rapidly expanding equine client base, across all disciplines, we are seeking a motivated, enthusiastic, and driven team player to join our equine team.

We will assess the position during the fixed term period and there is the possibility of the role will move to a permanent position.

You will be supported by a team of vets and technicians and your input will be sought, valued, and respected.

This position would ideally suit someone who is enthusiastic, self-motivated, has great people skills and strives for high standards in quality veterinary care. If you enjoy developing strong relationships with clients, working in a fun, friendly team environment and have a desire to see your clients succeed while still maintaining a balanced life then this might be just the job for you.

The clinic is BESTPRACTICE accredited and well equipped with a new on-site purpose-built surgical facility and specialist surgeon, digital x-ray, shockwave, endoscopy, ultrasound, IRAP and in-house lab.
