Medivet Yeading is in the enviable position of being very recently refurbished to a lovely high standard. With three consultation rooms and a huge prep room (we often joke about hosting pilates classes!), as well as a huge waiting room, a designated imaging room, separate theatre and staff room, it really is a lovely space to work in.

Our current Lead Vet is very sadly relocating and we are looking for someone to take the reins and continue to build and grow the practice in the community.

The experienced team, consisting of a Head RVN, a CCA and a PCA, are all passionate about delivering an excellent service to our clients whilst making sure that the team is well looked after.

We are fortunate to have a good relationship with other Medivet practices in the area and so support is always available for those tricky cases (medical or surgical), so whilst it is a sole charge position there is still plenty of assistance if needed.

We have a high number of cats in the area and have a high caseload of feline neutering as we also currently participate in the London charity neutering schemes.

It’s a great opportunity to mould a practice into what you want it to be whilst providing a really important and much appreciated service for local pets.

Please feel free to get in touch with any questions, our departing Lead Vet is very happy to chat with any potential applicants if any more details are needed
