Step into a supportive start
Your normal hours of work are 40 hours per week, over either 4 or 5 days per week. Due to the particular needs of the business we need to operate a rota system, therefore there are no normal times of work applicable to you and your daily hours, start and finish times will vary from time to time on a rota system. The rota operates Monday to Friday inclusive. In addition, you will also be required to participate in a Saturday rota, there will be no night OOH requirement.
We believe that supporting both our graduates’ veterinary skills and confidence is the best way to help them achieve their goals and flourish as a new vet.
