They are supported by three full time experienced Receptionists. As a team we all work really well together and are always keen to support each other! Although we are all passionate about very high standards and we are a busy team, we are never short of tea and biscuits and a good laugh.
We're looking for 1+ years’ experience ideally - it would be preferable if you can do basic ops like castrates, spays, dentals and uncomplicated mass removals yourself - of course help is available when needed but some independency is an advantage.
