Looking for flexibility? We’re listening.

Working nights and weekends? Yes, but it is still the best job out there.

We have created a clinic-specific solution that combines the adrenaline rush of emergency and critical care with the flexibility of working only during the night. Perfect for those who enjoy having their days free or like having chunks of time off to pursue their own interests outside of work. 

Work only 1:3 weekends? Work only nights and no days? At Vets Now Gillingham you can.

With long breaks in between shifts and no more than 3 shifts in a row, you will have ample time to enjoy life outside of work.
