About us

We’re a community of passionate veterinary professionals committed to providing truly exceptional care. We’re set on building something extraordinary: creating the most forward-thinking and innovative place in the veterinary industry.

We’re always looking for people who aspire to stand out in their field, and it’s this vision and enthusiasm that forms the foundation of how we work.

Our mission to deliver progressive, around the clock care means our employees have the very best equipment and treatment options available, including in-house MRI machines and state-of-the-art operating theatres.

We provide ongoing support to our teams, both in practice and through our dedicated training centre. This empowers you to get the very best from our advanced equipment while being on your journey to veterinary excellence.

The role

largest independent small animal group in the UK which is managed entirely by vets. We know your first role in practice is a critical step in your career, so we have designed a new graduate support programme that supports you as an individual as you graduate from the lecture hall to the consult room.

Few of us had the full range of consulting, medical and surgical skills on day one. With our new programme launching in August, you’ll benefit from 3 months of one-to-one training with experienced vets. The entire programme runs for 12 months and includes 17 separate teaching modules. We’ll help you build trust and confidence in your own skills, take the pressure off and avoid many of the stresses that can really get you down. As you will be completing this programme alongside fellow grads, you get the opportunity to create a nice social bond from day one!

Your training will include:

3 months of one-to-one training outside the normal vet rota
Practical wet-labs (surgery, dentistry, ophthalmology and ultrasound) and night training
Workshops on dermatology, cardiology, exotics, consult training, resilience, mental health and leadership
Online Courses in dentistry, surgery, medicine and ECC
