We’re a community of passionate veterinary professionals committed to providing truly exceptional care. We’re set on building something extraordinary: creating the most forward-thinking and innovative place in the veterinary industry. We’re always looking for people who aspire to stand out in their field, and it’s this vision and enthusiasm that forms the foundation of how we work. Our mission to deliver progressive, around the clock care means our employees have the very best equipment and treatment options available, including in-house MRI machines and state-of-the-art operating theatres. We provide ongoing support to our teams, both in practice and through our dedicated training centre. This empowers you to get the very best from our advanced equipment while being on your journey to veterinary excellence.
Are you looking for an exciting opportunity to work in Medivet practices alongside Vets and Nurses? We are looking for a motivated and friendly individual with a strong passion for animal care and welfare to join us as a Mobile Veterinary Care Assistant. In this role you will receive full support and guidance with our in-house ‘on the job’ training program led by a qualified buddy. You will be working in all areas of the practice learning the core principles of veterinary nursing.
This is a unique opportunity for individuals who do not desire to progress to college and become a student veterinary nurse, or do not meet the entry requirements at present.
This position will involve working across practices in our Richmond (London) region. The successful candidate will have plenty of hands on experience with patients including walking dogs and TLC with cats; you will be responsible for maintaining kennels and the general environment to a high clinical standard following cleaning protocols, feeding animals, animal handling and behaviour, reporting back to and assisting nurses with patient care and preparing medical equipment. The ideal candidate will enjoy working as part of a busy team and possess the confidence to work alone when required; you will have a flexible and adaptable approach to work, happy to get stuck in where ever needed.
Should your circumstances change during any period of time within the role and you wish to progress and/or meet the college requirements, Medivet will support this and review current vacancies at that time.
