The Role

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Clinical Director to join our team here at Marple Vets, Stockport!
You will be responsible for the day to day running of a busy practice. This will include clinical duties working alongside fellow vets, but also administrative tasks to ensure the smooth running of the practice. A full-time role would require 40 hours to be worked through the week, but there is flexibility to consider part-time work as an alternative, over a minimum of 3 days. There is no out of hours work, but the role would involve working 1 in 4 Saturday mornings

About the Team and Culture

We have a team of 5 vets, 5 qualified nurses, 2 student nurses and 5 support staff including a Practice Manager. Two of our veterinary surgeons hold advanced qualifications and we encourage all our staff to develop their skills.
