Start date: Late summer 2020
A unique opportunity to work at Village Vet Primrose Hill, located in beautiful North-West London. As the main vet here you will be responsible for the continued growth of this established, community-focussed, welcoming practice.
This practice is consultations only but in the middle of the day you will be transported via taxi to our nearby Village Vet in St John's Wood to do surgery and work ups, alongside the Head Vet there. This makes the role a great balance we like to call 'supported sole-charge'!
At our neighbouring Village Vet St John's Wood, we have ultrasound, digital and dental xrays, in-house lab and clinical support from neighbouring Village Vet branches, the 24-hour hospital in Hampstead and the equally local London Veterinary Specialist team. This means even referred cases can be followed easily on our systems, allowing you to have great case continuity.
We believe in finding out the answers to cases and as such have a strong bias towards gold-standard diagnostics and treatment. The client base is loyal, friendly and dedicated which facilitates this approach and in return we pride ourselves on providing an exceptional client experience.
Whether you are an established vet looking for a new role, or someone looking to take this step in your career, this is a special practice and we urge you to get in touch.
