Are you ready to lead the best in Emergency and Critical Care?

If you are ready to take the next step in progressing your career, we have an exciting and unique opportunity available for a District Vet to cover clinics in Farnham, Guildford, Reading, Staines, High Wycombe, Hemel Hempstead and Luton.

Support and nurture the next generation of veterinary professionals

At Vets Now we are committed to developing the next generation of veterinary professionals, offering a supportive environment that nurtures emergent talent. As a District Vet, you will be at the forefront of delivering that vision, leading from the front in creating a culture of continuous improvement, people development and shaping the future of the veterinary profession. When we say we’re the best, we mean it.

Deliver excellence

As a District Vet, you will be supported by a District Manager and the Principal Vets in your clinics to ensure the delivery of strong and sustainable financial and business performance. Crucially, you will be responsible for driving improvements in clinical standards across your District and working closely with the Head of Veterinary Standards to ensure consistency across the company.

We are all Vets Now

Our values are at the heart of what we do, underpinning our commitment to our people and defining our organisational culture. As a District Vet, you will be an advocate of our values, encouraging your people to exude our values in their behaviours and interactions.

Maximise performance of individuals and teams

To be considered for this role you must have proven experience in coaching and mentoring, with capability to develop, motivate and maximise clinical and financial performance of individuals and teams. You must be a proficient ECC clinician and passionate about driving clinical excellence through delivery of clinical benchmarking, governance and mentoring.

Implement change and improvement

It’s vital that you have commercial awareness within the veterinary profession to understand the challenges both operationally and clinically to support implementation of change and improvement, and to meet commercial objectives. As expected with a role of this stature, excellent communication skills are essential. Managing difficult conversations, and dealing with conflict and complaints are also key components.

Please note the role of District Vet is home based with regular travel required within your district and throughout the UK.

If you feel you have the requisite skills to take the next step in your career, please send your CV and covering letter to Anne at anne.longmire@vets-now.com by 12pm on Friday 13 October.
