The Role

We are looking for a Clinical Director to join our team. Day to day duties involve acting in the role of clinical lead, consulting and operating and handling clinical complaints.

About Us

Shield Veterinary Centre is across two sites, one in Hedge End between Portsmouth and Southampton and one in the beautiful medieval village of Bishop's Waltham home to a famous medieval palace. The clinics are well equipped with ultrasound, digital radiography, digital dental radiography, endoscopy and Idexx laboratory machines (Catalyst and Procyte). We have two consulting rooms at each site and dedicated theatres.

However, the best thing about our clinic is not our equipment, it is our fantastic team, our veterinary surgeon team consists of great clinicians from 3 years qualified to 36 years qualified, a superb nursing team to support, a great Practice Manager and team of support staff to match.

If you like walking and cycling, there is no place better than the New Forest, more into paddle boarding? We have excellent rivers to do so and the ocean!
