Are you interested in production medicine and looking for a career change?

We are currently recruiting for two veterinary positions based from our Northallerton, Yorkshire branch.

In addition to our full-time role, we also have a unique opportunity for a colleague to work with us for 8 months of the year. This position would predominantly be within our game bird team working from April to November. The salary would reflect this but would be paid over a 12 month period.

The ideal candidates must be strong and confident communicators with a commitment to learning. An interest in poultry and game bird medicine is essential, although no previous experience is required. These unique opportunities offer generous remuneration packages with excellent support and career development.
