The group is a progressive small animal practice with a friendly team of eight vets, eight nurses and twelve support staff. We currently have four surgeries located in Essex.

Due to our continued growth, we are looking for an energetic and dynamic person to manage and improve the practice even further. The role is a mixture of HR, finance and business management, marketing and advertising, facilities management and IT.
The challenge is to combine all these aspects of business to increase performance and job satisfaction, improve retention, and ultimately increase the profitability of the practice.

• Ability to collate, analyse and understand key financials and sales information.
• Good up-to-date IT skills and a working knowledge of IT networks.
• Familiarity with government legislation relating to running a business in a safe and compliant manner.
• Ability to engage with, and motivate a team, and build effective working relationships.
• Negotiation skills and ability to manage in an open and consultative manner.
• Excellent organisational and planning skills - detailed, methodical and time conscious.
• Ability to look at problems from a tactical and strategic perspective.
• Ability to identify the need for change, suggest initiatives and drive improvements.
• Strong initiative and will to succeed, coupled with a pragmatic and flexible approach.
• Commercial focus but dedication to providing a first-class customer service experience.
• Ability to bring energy and enthusiasm to any situation and to always act with honesty and integrity.
