They have a major focus on equine dentistry within the practice and would be happy to help teach a successful applicant if necessary.

About the Role:

Their flexible approach to rota patterns and working hours truly tips the scale on your work life balance. They know that everyone has demands and priorities outside of their career and they want to make it brilliantly easy for you to strike the right balance.

About the Practice:

Our client is a purpose-built clinic equipped with stocks, consulting rooms, an operating theatre, digital x-ray, ultrasound, endoscope, gastroscope, shockwave and K-Laser. It is in a lovely rural county with big beaches and skies to match.

Currently they have 5 Veterinary Surgeons and 4 Support Staff, one of their Vets has an equine dental certificate. They supply Vets to Fakenham Racecourse and Royal Norfolk Show. Several of them have horses and ride and the vets without horses will sometimes ride out on theirs. There is a network of younger vets too as they have a small animal sister practice in the town (Summerhill Vet Centre).
