Company Description

We value our Team.
This means finding out what makes each person tick.
What do they love?
What are their strengths?
What stresses them out?
Then we work with you to see how you can play to your strengths within our highly experienced and supportive team.

We want each and every member of staff to know working for us is sustainable for them in the long term.
Stress, illness, burn out and very sadly, suicide is a massive problem in the veterinary profession nationwide. It leads to vets in particular not being able to do the job they love and leaving the profession altogether.

It doesn’t have to be this way and we offer an innovative flexible approach to allow prospective and current team members to tell us what is important to them and so enable them to rediscover why they chose this career. We want you to love coming to work! If it might take you a while to get there – that’s ok- come and talk to us.

We are a small team right now and to make it sustainable we are not offering extended opening hours or Saturday opening times at the moment. We may in the future if we have team members for whom these hours work.
We need downtime too, with our children, with our family and friends to re-charge our batteries. So that when we are at work we can give our clients and their pets 100%.

There will always be someone on call to help clients with a life-threatening emergency but we know the pressures this can put on team members. We recognise being able to talk to us in stressful situations is much valued by clients, but we also know the importance of the team’s health and well-being.

Happy team = Happy Clients= Healthy Patients
