No phones or OOH past 7pm with inpatients being held on weeknights only.
We are located in the beautiful seaside town of St Andrews with 2 branches in the local area. We are seeking an experienced candidate to join our friendly, enthusiastic, and dynamic team which consists of 5 vets, 6 RVNs, and 5 receptionists. The practice is well-equipped with high standard facilities including 2 surgical theatres, dental suite, digital and dental x-ray, endoscopy, new Imotek ultrasound machine and in-house lab. We have regular vet meetings and full team meetings and offer fantastic supportive and a progressive team. Further study and career progression is supported.
