AlphaPet Veterinary Clinics
Bognor Regis, West Sussex, United KingdomAs part of a large veterinary group, AlphaPets has the support of external HR, marketing and finance teams, but the Practice Manager is responsible for coordinating these services and ensuring that support protocols are implemented and maintained.
The new Practice Manager will play an intrinsic part in the next stage of AlphaPet’s journey, and the successful candidate will be ambitious for the practice and themselves. Reporting directly to the Operations team, the Practice Manager will have influence over the direction and focus of the practice but moreover, will be responsible for the delivery of all non-clinical aspects of agreed strategies. It is a job that will require commitment and drive, but which will deliver the satisfaction, enjoyment and sense of achievement, that comes from making a difference. We are going through a period of change at AlphaPets and are rebuilding the team from the ground up. This offers an exciting opportunity for a project led, Practice Manager, to build and create a team with support from the group.

Established for 28 years, AlphaPets is a 3 centre practice based on the beautiful south coast, the practice provides care and treatment for dogs, cats, rabbits and the full range of companion animals. We have the fullest range of equipment and facilities, and we have experienced and dedicated clinicians who deliver exceptional service to their clients as well as outstanding clinical care for their patients.
We work hard to help our staff reach their true potential, so we provide a collaborative and supportive environment where training is encouraged, where individuals often move to new roles and where staff are allowed the freedom to work independently as well as in their teams. Clinical excellence is at the heart of everything we do, along with a belief in the need for compassion and understanding when working with anxious and concerned clients.
Knowledge in HR, finance, marketing, customer service and IT is essential. Key skills in leadership, HR management, communication (oral and written), change management, process design and implementation and project management is required. Experience with direct responsibility for KPI delivery, organisational re-design and change, project delivery, IT and infrastructure management, decision-making and management team support & guidance is also required.
