Fix or flex – work life balance that works for you
Our vets usually work Monday to Friday 9 am – 2 pm, then 4 pm – 7 pm when the out of hours team takes over. There are no out of hours or weekend duties associated with this role. However our flexible approach to rota patterns and working hours truly tips the scale on your work life balance. We know that everyone has demands and priorities outside of their career and we want to make it brilliantly easy for you to strike the right balance. Whether you need to do the school pick up, need reduced hours during school holidays or would simply like a more flexible rota pattern we can fix or flex our patterns to suit you.
The salary for this role is up to £63,000 depending on experience.
We are a clinically focussed group who aspire to offer the best customer service. We are extensively equipped with in-house Idexx lab, digital x-ray, dental x-ray, ultrasound, endoscopy, etc. We have an amazing team who work closely together to not only offer the highest level of care but help to develop each team member's individual skill set to help them achieve their own goals. Based on the beautiful south coast we are sandwiched between the sea and the southdowns meaning we have an array of outdoor activities on the doorstep. With great transport links it is truly a magnificent place to live.
