If so, then we have an exciting opportunity available for an enthusiastic 2+ year graduate to join our forward thinking tight-knit family of 22 small animal vets in beautiful South Wales.

About us

  • We fund VDS and RCVS membership plus one additional subscription and provide a health plan to all vets.
  • A relocation package is available.
  • The practice is located near the South Wales coast, nestled between the bright city lights of Cardiff and Swansea, with easy access to the award-winning beaches of the Gower, and the beautiful rolling hills of the Brecon Beacons. Many of our new vets have developed a keen interest in surfing as of recently!
