The Practice

What make us different?

We are part of a long-established independent group of practices in Surrey, with a friendly, laid-back approach. We realise that our staff have lives of their own outside of work, and are happy to work around other commitments where possible.

Our clients are loyal and we would describe the practice style as Traditional/relaxed.

We don't stand on ceremony, but we do expect all our staff to give the best of their ability to provide an excellent service for the pets in our care, with a welcoming, helpful and reassuring manner towards clients.

Want makes us stand out?

What makes this particular job stand out is the civilised hours, with no weekend or OOH work, and our willingness to discuss a flexible working week. It really should be the perfect job for someone, with easy hours, and a very friendly team of staff helping each other out. Possibly suitable for someone returning to work after a break, or wanting to fit work around other commitments.

This is a great chance to be involved in a growing independent practice surrounded by a motivated supportive team helping you to do the work you trained to do.
