These regions are covered by our Clinical Director team and we are able to offer some flexibility in terms of which region the successful candidate will focus on.

About Us

The Summerhill Group is very varied and diverse with many opportunities for an enthusiastic and ambitious individual. The main site in Newport is a busy hub with typically 5-6 vets working on any one day and is well equipped with the most advanced equipment including endoscopy, surgical/orthopaedic and dental equipment, and the latest diagnostic imaging and cardiology equipment. The other clinics are all pretty self-sufficient and are usually 1 or 2 vet sites. We have a wide range of skills in the group, including certificate holders in surgery, medicine, diagnostic imaging, cardiology, and feline medicine, and like to share and assist in the development of our team members.

The cities of Bristol, Newport and Cardiff are all very close to our clinics, along with the natural beauty spots of the Brecon Beacons, the Forest of Dean, and the beautiful South Wales coastline. So, there are many places you could base yourself.
