About the role

You will have the opportunity to work across both sites getting a perfect balance between a slower and faster paced caseload. Chessington is our quieter high street practice with a large consult and prep area. Ewell is Chessington’s larger hub; it is a beautifully refurbished practice with large prep and kennel area and a separate upstairs space, with a fast-paced varied surgical caseload.

You will be fully supported by experienced support colleagues in each branch, a dedicated regional manager, and an exceptionally experienced regional head vet for any clinical support you may need.

You will also be fully supported by Stone Lion 24-hour hospital in Wimbledon for more complex cases, and for patients who need overnight care, this is provided by our dedicated OOH team.

Chessington and Ewell are ideally situated in South London, within an easy train ride straight into central. Kingston Upon Thames is a short drive away and is a stunning part of southwest London, with riverside pubs, cafes, restaurants, and a short walk over the bridge to Hampton Court Palace.
