VetFinders are happy to be recruiting for a wonderfully independent family run, small animal practice, in Greater Manchester.

Due to retirement of a member of staff who has been with the company for the best part of 30yrs, the practice is now looking to add to their team with immediate effect.


This is a fantastic opportunity for a 2 years plus qualified Vet, looking to join a busy knowledgeable team, and ever-increasing case load. If you are a Companion Animal Vet looking for an independent practice with a supportive team, look no further!

As a Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon, you will need to be able and comfortable with a mixture of consultations and surgical procedures of general practice. Confident and competent in the role, some sole charge in work.


The ideal candidate will have a minimum of 2 years’ experience, this is not essential, but preferred.


Development and progression are important to the practice, as they grow and evolve, but finding the right person is key. The practice is looking for someone to work with the existing clients, and deliver their high excellent standard of patient care. The team currently have strong work ethics to ensure quality and effective work is carried out to gain the best overall satisfied results for the patient and the client.


My clients rarely need to refer cases elsewhere, and have visiting veterinary specialists, so if you have a strong interest in soft tissue surgery or orthopaedics then you will have the chance to shadow these procedures too!

Excellent work/life balance

My clients practice is a successful and established practice, in a town in the Metropolitan Borough if Bury, Greater Manchester. It holds an excellent reputation, with lots of loyal customers.


This family run practice is very proud to be independent and their commitment to their quality in service still remains unchanged and unaltered everyday ever since the start. The practice is owner run, and they have built up a team of respected professionals within the local area.


The practice is committed to providing clients with the best possible, affordable healthcare for their beloved pets, whilst delivering an excellent service and experience, that is recognisable from others.


All the latest gadgets are available on site, including digital x-ray, ultrasound, a brand new in house Idexx lab and a K-Laser.


The practice is looking for a team player, who also has the confidence to work independently.


The practice owner very much has an open-door policy and is always open to suggestions from the team.


Location wise you couldn’t ask for better – within just 5 minutes’ walk from the practice there are two parks, a superstore, deli and a gym – perfect for a quick snack and walk at lunch or for getting your gym fix!
