This team consists of 7 Veterinary Surgeons, 4 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 2 Student Veterinary Nurses, a Veterinary Care Assistant and 9 Support Staff. They have one Certificate holder in surgery at present and one Vet currently studying for a medicine certificate. They offer diagnostic imaging at 2 of our sites, dentals, lab work and surgical procedures. Their third branch carries out orthopaedic work and they see a varied range of cases; no two days are the same. They are increasing their focus on nurse consults and wellness screening as well as orthopaedics.

This role will primarily be based at their Glengormley site; however, the successful applicant will also be placed on a rota to cover the other two sites. The Crumlin site would be the place of work for weekend duty. Their three branches are easily accessible and they are not far from the North Coast, which offers scenic walks and sights such as the Giant’s Causeway.
