Job Description

This role can be flexible in terms of hours worked and the possibility of no weekends/ooh or a mix of weekday branch work and ECC weekend work. They truly can work with you to find your ideal combination of clinical work and rota pattern.

About the Practice:

This Vets is lucky to be situated in an extremely diverse area. South Wales and in particular, Cardiff and its surroundings, really are something very special. Within easy commuting distance of all of our practices, you can be living in the vibrant city centre of Cardiff, surround yourself with nature and tranquillity in the coastal towns of the Vale of Glamorgan, or the mountains of the Valleys and Brecon Beacons National Park. The area really does have something for everyone. Sports facilities are extensive and broad-ranging: from the International Sports Village in Cardiff to UK-renowned mountain bike trails in Merthyr Tydfil and Cwmbran, beautiful walks on the Welsh Coastal Path or mountain and waterfall walks in the Brecon Beacons National Park, there really is something for everyone.

They aim to tailor people’s working patterns to suit their needs and allow them to strike a healthy balance between work and home life. Whether it’s working weekdays with no weekend or OOH commitments, through to purely ECC work or even a mixture of the two: they can find a combination to suit most people!

The 4 branch practices are fully equipped with all the modern kit you would expect! They are fully self-sufficient practices that have the back up and support of the hospital site when needed. Standard branch facilities include digital x-ray and dental x-ray, blood analysers, ultrasound and access to shared radiosurgery units. Two of the sites are currently under refurbishment, with the remaining two being completed later in 2023!

The hospital site boasts a CT scanner, advanced ultrasonography equipment, endosurgery facilities, extensive blood analysis equipment, dedicated orthopaedic, soft tissue and exotic theatres, as well as a dedicated dental suite.

They also proudly host pet blood bank sessions to provide much needed support to the veterinary community which has so far received outstanding feedback.

The culture is one that values not only their patients and clients but the team as well. They truly believe that by looking after their teams, the highest levels of patient and client care will naturally follow. They strive to provide an environment that encourages people to achieve their full potential, embark on further study, if desired, and progress in their chosen career pathways. They have numerous projects aimed at supporting team wellbeing and have the team actively involved in how the practice can progress.

  • Are happy to work within a team
