Regional Operations Director
Medivet was established in 1987, and we’ve been building something extraordinary since then. We now have more than 150 Branch Partners and over 400 clinics plus round-the-clock practices. We’ve had a thriving Support Centre since 1995, based at the Watford premises since 2002.
We’re proud that we’ve been able to achieve steady growth without losing the family feel of the company, and we’re always looking for like-minded people to join us. You’ll be joining at a time when Medivet is growing, and you’ll be able to make a real impact on how the business is shaped for the future.
