This fantastic client in Leicestershire have a rare and exciting opportunity for a Clinical Director to join their team.
Due to relocation, they are looking for a confident vet to join their leadership team and run the small animal sector of this large mixed business.

The Group have been providing veterinary care to pets and farm animals in the local area since the 1970s and have an excellent reputation for their friendly and reliable service. The group has recently expanded so that the farm animal provision is now based at a seperate site and has recently expanded its SA provision taking ownership of a branch in Leicester.

As clinical director, you will have overarching responsibility for the small animal business; you will work alongside the two farm clinical directors to lead the whole group, and be fundamental in setting strategy and maintaining excellent clinical standards across the sites.

Day-to-day responsibilities include line managing a team of vets across three sites; ensuring the financial viability of the business through managing services, purchasing, and creating new business opportunities; and working with your Business Development Director to engage with the wider VetPartners business.
This role will allow the successful candidate to work autonomously to ensure the continued success of this wonderful practice whilst offering support, mentorship, and training to develop clinical and leadership skills.
You will be supported by the large animal clinical directors, the Practice Manager, your Business Development Director, and a support office team who are experts within their fields.
