Our client who we are thrilled to be working with is seeking a dynamic and dedicated Clinical Lead Vet to join their team on a permanent basis. 


This is more than just a role; it's an opportunity to drive clinical excellence and shape the future of their forward-thinking practice. Working collaboratively with the Practice Director, you will lead with humility, driving positive change and directing the implementation of clinical initiatives to enhance the high level of veterinary and client care provided. Your role will involve supporting the Practice Director in fostering a unified "1 team approach" within the practice.

You will play an active role in the development of the clinical team, conducting annual reviews, and shaping practice protocols.

The Clinical Lead Vet role entails up to 40 hours per week, with a requirement for at least 3 days of presence across both practices (excluding Saturdays) to ensure appropriate levels of support and leadership. 


Up to £75,000 depending on experience, up to £5,000 relocation support, plus benefits

In addition to a competitive base salary, you will benefit from -
•    6.6 weeks annual leave
•    Private medical insurance
•    Enhanced family-friendly policies, including maternity/paternity/adoption/shared parental and surrogacy pay
•    Cycle to Work scheme
•    £1250 CPD allowance with 40 hours paid pro rata
