Job Description

This position is based in our newly refurbished Moulton site, with access to high spec equipment, including advanced imaging.

We are looking for an enthusiastic RVN to join our existing highly skilled and supportive team, at our Moulton site, working with our referral and first opinion veterinary surgeons.

Applicants should also be fit enough to cope with the physical demands of the role – lifting/restraining animals and cleaning. In return, we can offer a competitive salary, a modern and highly equipped working environment and support from highly skilled peers including certificate holders in small animal discipline. We are in an excellent location with direct transport links to London and Birmingham Plus. Additional benefits include:
