Here’s what the team have to say about life at Norcross:
“I have been at Norcross Vets for 9 years now. I started out volunteering few a few hours on Saturdays with no qualifications in anima care. Thanks to Norcross’ guidance and training I’m not a full qualified Veterinary Nurse. I couldn’t ask for a more supportive team!”
“I have worked at Norcross for 18 months. It’s a very friendly place to work and everyone is a team player. The facilities are amazing, I’m very lucky to work in such a amazing practice.”
“ I love working at Norcross Vets, I have been here for 30 years. We consider ourselves to be more of a family than a team. We’re always there for each other! There’s always cakes and sandwiches available and we regularly meet up outside of work for social activities!”
