The Practice
As a multi-award-winning Independent Practice, they have enjoyed sustained growth over the last several years, culminating in the practice almost reaching its full capacity with clients as well as its team. The turnover of Team Members is extremely low, showing how content and dedicated the team is here. Recruitment is needed due to expansion of the practice. 
They are fiercely independent and look to remain so indefinitely by continuing to show that each of their clients and their animals are all important to them. Consistency within the team gives their clients the confidence that their concerns are listened to, and that the animals are individually known and can be treated as such.
To continue giving the best service to as many people as possible, the practice opened its own dedicated “OUT OF HOURS” team in October 2022. This new service is also available to our neighbouring practices that have registered with us to use our OOH service. 
This is a great chance to be involved in an independent practice surrounded by a motivated supportive team helping you to do the work you are trained to do.
