Old Courts Vets
Brigg, Lincolnshire, United KingdomSmall Animal Vet required for our popular family-owned North Lincolnshire practice
Old Courts Veterinary Centre is one of the few, truly independent Veterinary Practices, locally that is family-owned & run – owned by husband & wife team; Mark and Katherine Goodlad.
At Old Courts Vets, we do things extremely differently to the corporate model and have a very hands-on approach in everything we do. We care very deeply about the clients who walk through our doors & their companion animals, and by extension our wider community. Our reputation is a family run practice that is actively engaged within the town and we participate in many charity events.
Old Courts Veterinary Centre has been operating for more than 20-years from its current site in Brigg. We are able to offer top quality facilities and a premises that has just benefitted from an extensive renovation including a Tiki-themed office! Walking through the doors is not like any other practice, we wanted it to feel as un-clinical as possible – something we have worked extremely hard to achieve and are very proud to have done so.
We are a thriving practice with an outstanding reputation for excellence in our community, many of our clients are multi-generational, having been part of the practice for more than 20-years. Our success has been built on an ethos of treating each client and pet as an individual and taking the time to get to know our clients. We treat each individual with the same care and respect that we would treat our own pets. This can be harder work than fitting each case into a protocol, but we believe (and our clients seem to value), that this is the best approach.
We have a very relaxed, yet busy clinic with a varied caseload – so the role would suit someone who doesn’t want the burn out of working on the hamster wheel of a corporate anymore. We work hard giving our clients and patients our very best, and that includes providing our own OOH care. However, we love the job satisfaction derived from doing things well and building long lasting relationships. When walking through town clients often stop our vets to enquire how they are, as well as telling them funny stories about Mark (the eccentric Practice Principal).
About our facility:
-Brand new, state of the art equipment, digital X-Ray, ultrasound, purpose built dental table, separate kennel and cattery
-On-site laboratory to run Biochemistry, haematology, snap tests, urinary analysis, and microscope
-Incredible support staff, including a team of 7 permanent nurses.
Our ideal candidate:
We are extremely fortunate that the practice works at a very relaxed pace, and therefore any candidate that applies must strive to offer the best in clinical care to our clients and their pets. We have multiple sites and there will be the requirement for some sole charge, so confidence and a friendly demeanour are a must. We have an excellent reputation locally, and this is due to the compassion shown by our team, as well as their growth-mindset – always looking to improve their knowledge and contribute within the team too.
Flexibility is very important, as we are a team who support and care for one another. In return you will find a team and a family who will nurture, encourage and support you like no other practice before. As well as excellent benefits, holidays and renumeration.
Should you be interested in applying or would like more information including salary, please either email your CV to email@example.com or call the Practice Manager, Claire Blackmore, for a confidential conversation.
