Animal Care Assistant - Uppingham

Applications will close on the 7th June 2024


An opportunity is open for an Animal Care Assistant to join the team at our busy practice in Uppingham.

Our ideal candidate would be enthusiastic, organised, forward-thinking, and highly motivated. Since our branches are community-focused, a positive attitude and a friendly, empathetic nature are essential.

Responsibilities include providing comprehensive support to our nursing team in various aspects of patient care such as feeding, walking, and handling animals. Additionally, you will assist with preparation for daily surgical procedures, including thorough cleaning of all clinical and non-clinical areas including equipment and surgical kits.

Our clients deserve just as much care and attention as their pets so you must love people too. Strong communication skills, both written and verbal, are vital as reception duties are part of the role.

The position requires working five days a week from 12:30 PM to 6:30 PM, including participation in a shared weekend rota, currently 1 in 3 Saturday mornings. There may also be an opportunity in the future to train as a Veterinary Nurse for the right person.

If you are interested in being part of a friendly team and working in an independent family-run practice, we would be delighted to hear from you.
