Clinical Director required at Biscot Mill Vet Centre
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Clinical Director to join our friendly, forward-thinking team at Biscot Mill Vet Centre in Luton, Bedfordshire. The successful candidate will lead the team into the future along with Lizzie, our driven practice manager and be responsible for both the clinical and financial performance of the practice. You will also have access to area support from both Emily, our Area Support Manager and Gus, our Area Director.
Day to day you will undertake a clinical role including surgery and consultations with a varied caseload. You would also be responsible for mentoring junior members of the team and setting clinical objectives to achieve best practice in patient and client care. Administrative duties would include line management of the veterinary team and driving the financial success and growth of the practice alongside the practice manager.
We are ideally seeking a full-time candidate, however, flexible working will be considered. The full-time rota will consist in working a 40hr week spread over 4 or 5 days with a flexible shift pattern. Our out-of-hours are covered by VetsNow.
The salary for this role is up to £80,000 depending on experience.
Welcome bonus £5,000 and a £5,000 relocation allowance also available
We are a busy small animal town practice, with a progressive attitude that takes pride in the high standards of care that we provide. Our nursing team, led by our Head Nurse, Emily, is particularly keen on pain management and local anaesthesia techniques and is happy to share this with any future colleagues!
We have recently invested in dental x-ray and a new dental suite, alongside the usual gadgets such as digital x-ray, ultrasound, tonopen, multiparameter monitoring equipment, blood haematology and biochemistry, bair huggers and blood pressure machines. Being in Luton we are close to the airport with fast links to London and the motorways.
About the Team and Culture
We are in the process of building our clinical team but have the potential and facilities to become a 3 full-time vet practice and the right candidate would be an integral part of this. We have a motivated and proactive nursing team, consisting of 2 registered veterinary nurses (soon to be 3), 2 student veterinary nurses and 2 veterinary care assistants who provide a high level of support and are confident with schedule 3 procedures and consulting. We also have a full reception team who help provide a high level of client care.
Candidates must have current MRCVS registration and we welcome applications from certificate holders. Our ideal candidate would have previous experience of leading a team while driving financial performance, however, this is not essential as support and training will be provided to the right candidate.
