Receptionist Job – Reading

£7.65 per hour

Care for people and pets in a rewarding and challenging job

Our out-of-hours clinic in Reading could not function without our Receptionists. They are a vital component in caring for our clients in a highly charged emotional environment.  

No shift is ever the same at Vets Now

Being a Receptionist with Vets Now is vastly different to a run of the mill job. Emergencies are so diverse that you can never predict what will come through the door next. Our clients expect an exceptional service at all times and our Receptionists play a key role in managing distressing situations face to face, and over the telephone. You may also be required on occasion to assist the nursing team and be hands on with the animals.

We are looking for the best of the best

To thrive in this role, you must be a quick thinker, empathetic and have a genuine desire to work with our clients by reacting to emergency situations effectively. Being a confident and efficient communicator are essential - our Receptionists are the face and voice of our clinics.

We are all Vets Now

Prior to running reception alone, you will work alongside the existing team to see first-hand how we stand out from the crowd. You will be provided with training and support continuously throughout your journey with Vets Now.

You will work approximately 20 hours per week on a 4-week rolling rota pattern covering Monday to Friday 18:30 to 00:00, Saturday 15:30 to 00:00. 1 Sunday shift per month from either 09:00 to 16:30 or 16:30 to 00:00, with a share of bank holidays which can include Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

Make a difference. Be part of a winning team. The best team. Now.
