Type of Work: Clinical Director
Job Details: For this Clinical Director role, the practice would love someone with small animal experience, a certificate in any discipline, previous management experience and the desire to make a difference with the veterinary team as a whole. A true team player who listens to the needs of the wider veterinary team, communicates effectively and leads by example. The role requires ideally a 50:50 balance between clinical and non-clinical workloads to cater to the needs of the clients as well as the pets the practice treats.
The Clinical Director would also need to be able to support the less experienced vets and act as a mentor to those enrolled on the companies New Graduate Academy. A strong desire for collaborative working with the rest of our Senior Management Team (Clinical Director, Practice Manager, Head Nurse, Deputy Head Nurse, Head Receptionist) is vital to ensure that the practice works collectively to achieve its shared goals.
The consulting hours run from 8am-8pm. Vets either start at 8am, 9am, 10:30am or 11am, with finish times of 6pm, 7pm or 8pm. They have at most 6-7 vets in per day with three consulting rooms operating over 12 hours, plus a group of vets and nurses working together on dedicated operating/procedures shifts. Lunch breaks run from 12:30/1pm to 2pm, with a dedicated 15 minute ward rounds at 1:45pm with all the vets and kennel nurses to discuss and finalise plans for our inpatients.
Many of the existing vets and nurses either have or are studying for additional qualifications in Medicine, Diagnostic Imaging, Surgery, Emergency/Critical Care or Anaesthesia/Analgesia. With access to CT on site, laparoscopic/arthroscopic equipment, upgraded ultrasound, a full suite of orthopaedic kits (TPLO, APLS locking, AO/ASIF), dental radiography and two surgical theatres, you will be hard pressed to find a more equipped and able veterinary practice for the vast majority of first and second opinion veterinary needs.
