Clinical Director | Locally Owned Small Animal Surgery

Clinical Director | Locally Owned Small Animal Surgery
Up to £80,000 + Extensive Benefits
Established Team of Vets and RVNs

Are you a Surgeon looking for a step up?

Do you want to work in a highly rated practice with a strong team underneath you?

We are working with a beautiful and modern Small Animal Practice in Birmingham to place a new Clinical Director within their Senior Leadership Team. A full candidate pack is available on request.

The Clinic:

The practice itself is a state-of-the-art general surgery covering a variety of disciplines. We boast multiple consult rooms and operating theatres as well as all the usual bells and whistles you would expect including ultrasound, dental X-Rays and a large in house lab. We also have facilities for echocardiography and chemotherapy as well as in house behaviourists.

The team consists of a Practice manager and 5 on the reception team, 4 RVNs with a Head Nurse currently completing their onboarding and 3 Veterinary Surgeons. The practice owner will always have a ‘boots on the ground’ approach and loves supporting her team.

The Job:

The current Practice Owner is looking to have the new Clinical Director take over more of the management of the practice. You would work closely alongside the Practice Manager to establish and meet KPIs and commercial targets and be the key player in driving clinical standards. In order to keep providing high quality care for years to come, we need to maintain strong profit levels so a good understanding of P&L is needed but you will be supported by the Practice Manager in this regard.

As well as operational requirements, the CD will need to be a confident clinical Vet. We mainly see Small Animals and would like to offer you the ability to work on your own case load within all areas of first opinion work. If you are particularly interested in a particular doctrine, albeit feline medicine, diagnostics or orthopaedic surgery etc, we are happy to let the CD’s case load be more biased. You will be needed to help train and develop junior vets so that the next generation of surgeons can be as confident as yourself.

The Candidate:

As the Clinical Director, you will be a confident GP vet with the skills to not only perform consults and surgeries, but also train and develop more junior and graduate vets into becoming clinical experts. RCVS registration is a must and certificate holders will stand out from the crowd.

As we are looking for a candidate to be with us for an extended period of time, someone with the scope to become a partner at the practice themselves in the future would be great, but far from a requirement.

What’s in it for me?

We are looking to offer up to around £80,000 for the right candidate but do have flexibility. Alongside the salary, we are able to offer some fantastic benefits including:

– Generous pension scheme
– Private healthcare
– Paid Certificates and CPD
– Paid memberships
– Life assurance
– Career progression
– Shopping discounts
– Relocation packages from within or outside the UK
– Visa Sponsorship available

Where is the clinic?

This practice is in Birmingham. Commutable from Stafford, Burton Upon Trent, Coventry, Walsall, Dudley, Wolverhampton, Kidderminster, Telford and all surrounding areas.
