The Role

We have an excellent opportunity for a Clinical Director looking to progress here at Alexander Vets. Day to day duties would see the successful candidate overseeing the general running of the Practice with involvement in clinical work and time operating and consulting. You will also work in tandem with the Practice Managers and Business Support managers. We are looking for someone who will be able to help mentor and coach our less experienced Vets, if this is something you are passionate about this role could be perfect for you! This is a full-time position, working a 4-day week with 1:4 Saturday mornings only. There are no OOH requirements. The salary for this role is up to £70,000 depending on experience.

About Us

We are a dual-site, well-equipped, family-friendly practice that loves learning and teaching. We are on the edge of the Lake District which has stunning scenery, amazing walks and is near to local beaches. Our Barrow branch has recently undergone a full refurbishment and we have all the latest lab and x-ray equipment! Large numbers of our clients have been registered with us for many years and these long-term relationships are key to our success and always remain important to us, we truly believe in a cradle to grave relationship with our clients.
We live and breathe by our unique team approach, and we thrive with that ethos, currently, we are a 4-vet practice, supported by a dedicated reception team and 6 Registered Veterinary Nurses. Sharing all our knowledge is something we love to do, your opinion and input matter to us. We say our practice is like a patchwork quilt, everyone has a piece to bring to create the full picture, from the cleaner to receptionists to the Practice Managers to you, everyone has importance and value in different shapes and sizes!

Applicant Requirements

We are hoping to welcome a Veterinary Surgeon to our team with great clinical and personable skills who is ideally a keen and skilled surgeon happy to carry out more advanced procedures at the Practice and oversee surgery on daily basis. Ideally, you would have had some management or Clinical Director experience, but the role may suit an experienced Veterinary Surgeon looking to step up and learn the skills needed for a Clinical Director position. We have available enrolment on the IVC Evidensia Leadership Development Programme if this would be advantageous. We are a busy practice, and some days workflow will be challenging while other days allow more time for managing the practice and private study. We require some resilience, stamina, problem-solving skills, and energy to allow the Practice to progress and move forward.
