​The Role:

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a practice we are working closely with to join their team in Bristol.

You will be responsible for independently managing medicine cases to a referral standard, and for communicating with clients and referring vets. You will be working as part of a multidisciplinary team, working in collaboration with other disciplines, e.g. soft tissue surgery will be required.

It is expected you would have a 5-day working week, however this is flexible. Out of hours cover can be negotiated, availability for telephone advice will be required.
