About our Team/Culture
The team at Sale are extremely hard-working team but we also love to have a laugh whilst we work. We are currently arranging team days out in the new year, escape rooms, cocktails and kayaking to name just a few. We are a clinically progressive practice, so our ideal candidate would be a vet who wants to provide a high-quality service to the pets under their care but is also a team player that would love to get involved in our organised activities outside of work. Between us we have a lot of experience and would be happy to mentor & coach someone who feels they would benefit from some extra support.
We have many stand out benefits available to us, for example it’s great that we get our birthday off every year and that we get up to 3 of our own pets on the Complete Wellness Plan for free. Did we mention work life balance is top of our agenda?
