Highfield Veterinary Centre
Sheffield, South Yorkshire, United KingdomWould you like to work in “probably the friendliest vets in Sheffield”? Well look no further…
Here at Highfield Vets we are a close knit team who enjoy our working days together. We are a sociable, caring and supportive lot, who put our patients first.
Our team consists of 3 experience permanent vets, plus regular visits from an ophthalmologist, cardiologist and orthopaedic surgeon. We have a wonderful team of 7 Veterinary Nurses & student VN’s who can offer you fantastic clinical support and we are also lucky enough to have a brilliant, dedicated support team, including Practice Manager, Receptionists and Dog groomers.
We really do value our employees. A lot of our team joined us many years ago and have never looked back since. We have Vet Surgeons who have been working for us for over 10 years and one of our receptionists has worked for us for over 35 years! We are a light, spacious, single site practice that is well equipped with; digital x-ray, ultrasound, in house blood machine including T4, dental machine, Capnography, doppler blood pressure machine, some orthopaedic equipment.
We believe we are the longest established vet practice in Sheffield (over 50 years, but we keep up to date!). We also recently joined IVC Evidensia in Summer 2019.
We work hard to ensure our practice is offering the highest standards of care and also great customer service. We value client communication skills as much as clinical ability and consequently have a great local reputation and a fantastic, loyal client base. Some of whom you will grow to know well during your time at Highfield Vets as they have kindly been visiting us for many years!
Highfield Vets continues to grow and as does our caseload. We care for small animals and also work closely with a lot of local charities and caring for rescue animals is really close to our heart. We sometimes see wildlife too. Our caseload is varied and we are big on preventative health care. We believe in case continuity, where possible and offering a personal service.
We rarely have vacancies become available at Highfield Vets but we now have a fantastic opportunity for a Vet Surgeon to join us due to one of our vets sadly leaving us, to return home to Ireland.
We are keen to hear from Vet Surgeons of all experience levels. Your role will involve a good mixture of consultations and surgeries. We actively encourage CPD and are always keen to support our teams interests and professional development so please do speak to us about any areas of specialism that you may be interested in! We are flexible regarding the hours you require, and which days you would like to work – and yes, we do have lunch breaks.
The practice is a genuinely nice place to work, with a happy atmosphere. You are more than welcome to speak to our departing vet Ciara, and current longest-standing vet Molly, who has been at the practice for over 12 years. Or please come and do a locum shift or 2!
