Steph Ward

Our client is looking for an enthusiastic and dedicated Clinical Director to join their friendly team and work alongside their current CD.

The ideal candidate will be a confident small animal clinician who is passionate about first opinion veterinary medicine with good communication skills and a drive to move the practice forward.

The practice is situated on the North Norfolk Coast, an area of outstanding natural beauty, with its award winning beaches and beautiful countryside. The historic city of Norwich is only 45 minutes away, with good links to London

The role is working up to a 4 day week, time varies between consulting & operating. 1:4 Saturday morning consults, 1:8 weekend on call and average 1 night per week on call.

The team pride themselves on providing a first class level of first opinion small animal veterinary care. Both of their modern practices sit in ideal locations and have been valued parts of the communities for many years.
The team enjoy discussing cases with each other in order to maximise individual skillsets and interests, and are always keen to stay up to date with the latest advances in veterinary medicine and surgery. They currently have one Advanced Practitioner within the practice, and are always welcoming the clinical team to expand on their skills and knowledge, so would happily support certificate training.

They currently have 5 full time and 1 part time vets across both practices, with an Advanced Practitioner in Feline Medicine. The vets are also supported by an experienced team of 5 qualified RVNs, 2 SVNs and 1 ANA. The support staff are also really experienced, and form an invaluable part of the team. As a Clinical Director you must be happy to support and guide new graduates.

This is a super friendly team, and even throughout the pandemic have been creating ways to keep their spirits high. Their latest event is a weekly 'Bake Off'!

The team are looking to employ an additional experienced vet, who is capable of sole charge (out of hours and weekend consulting) and comfortable with a range of first opinion surgeries.
