If you are a small animal vet looking for an exciting new leadership opportunity, apply to work with our first opinion clients.
We are a large multi-site first opinion practice and our ethos is based on clinical excellence, strong collaborative client relationships, compassionate patient care, teamwork and personal development. Our central hospital is in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire and we have 11 satellite clinics.
We are looking for a strong leader to support our Hospital Director, take responsibility for line managing vets within their own discipline and be accountable to deliver KPIs/budget in their area.
There is scope for this to progress to a Lead Vet role in the future for the right person. The key for us is finding someone who aligns with and shares our Core Values and has a genuine interest in helping us grow and develop the team and practice.
This could suit someone with a surgical or medical bias and a certificate or post graduate qualification would be an advantage.
Our hospital at Dewsbury is Tier 3 and we have 3 RCVS awards. We have great kit with 7 air-conditioned consult rooms, CT, 3 theatres, laparoscopy, XR/ultrasound/endoscopy, dental suite with XRay, hydrotherapy/physio on site, laser.... etc.
We have 10 vets working from this site (we hope to make it 12 in the near future as we are super busy and growing all the time), alongside 13 RVNs and a team of SVN/ACAs and receptionists.
40 hour week (average)
Vets usually work 3.5 days (2 x 8-8 shifts, 1 x 8-6 and 1 x half day).
There is also a weekend commitment, 1 in 4, Sat & Sun 8am-6pm.
