Veterinary Assistant Vacancy


Black rock vets is a friendly, long standing, independent small animal practice in Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset. We have recently had a change in management whilst staying a proud independent practice. We are currently seeking a full time new graduate vet we can support and help thrive as part of our growing team. As a practice, we aim to provide the highest level of customer and patient care, treating our patients as if they were our own without the pressures of the corporate structure, and will provide you with the time and support to work your cases up thoroughly, with no pressure of targets. We are a three vet, three nurse team treating all small animals, working with an out of hours clinic however there is opportunity to cover our own out of hours if interested. You would be working a 4 day week and be part of a 1:3 rota for daytime Saturday and Sunday cover.

We are looking for an enthusiastic person, with a strong focus on patient and client care, and desire to build strong client bonds. You will be supported by a clinical team who will encourage and support you to grow, and assist you to focus in the field of your passion.

We have worked hard to attain RCVS accredited to General Practice as well as Gold Cat Friendly status and Silver Rabbit Friendly status.

We always promote gold standard treatment for our patients, with responsible use of antibiotics and minimum 15 minute appointments. We also have an array of in house diagnostic equipment, including an Idexx lab station with biochemistry and haematology analysers, automated urine analyser, microscope, CR radiography which includes dental facilities and a colour Doppler ultrasound.

We are happy to fund CPD up to £1500 per year, plus lots of in house CPD through partner companies. 5 weeks annual leave. RCVS & VDS fees covered. Sponsorship available should that be needed. There is also free on site accommodation at the practice which is available for use if required. We have a market leading staff discount scheme as we aim to support our staff in all aspects.
