Job Description

The Role

We are currently recruiting for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our team. We are able to offer the support necessary to help get you confidently on your feet, and to quickly become a valued member of the AlphaPet team. We have an experienced team that includes certificate holders and experienced RVN’s, plus a fantastic support team. We have a very loyal client base, with a varied caseload, and a well-equipped hospital.  We are very much part of the local community. We have been recognised with the ‘Investor in People’ award, so you know you will be in good hands!

About Us

AlphaPets is an RCVS accredited 100% Small Animal Vet group based in West Sussex. We have a 24 hour hospital based in the fantastic location of West Meads, which supports our two Chichester based branch sites, in Lavant and Birdham. We pride ourselves on being a very personal and approachable group. Our customer service is second to none, and our staff are our single most important asset, they make Alphapet the success it is today.  We work very hard to maintain stable teams and so job vacancies like these are very rare. We are situated close to the sea and just over an hour from London and Gatwick Airport.

Applicant Requirements

The successful candidate will be interested in building strong client relationships, have exceptional clinical standards, and enjoy working within a team with some sole charge.  The ability to thrive in a busy small animal hospital would be an advantage. Certificate holders or someone who would like to study towards one, would be desirable.  We can provide accommodation to anyone relocating to the area, next to the practice.
