Small but perfectly formed, our Enfield branch in North London has been caring for pets and their owners in the local community for nearly 40 years. It has a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, a dedicated, longstanding team, and loyal clients. Ashleigh our lovely vet is staying with us, but heading West to head up our Harrow clinic, so we’re on the hunt for a vet with a passion for small animal medicine and who would like a surgery on which to make their mark! Great transport links into Liverpool St Station in just 22 minutes!

Goddard Veterinary Group is a family-run practice and was started in 1952 by Arthur Goddard. His son Philip took over the reins in the late ‘90s and remains the practice principal. We are now the largest family-run veterinary practice in the UK and have 44 branches, 3 hospitals, and our own nursing college. We have a great reputation for looking after our staff; over 20% of our team have been with us 10 years or more and we are proud of our many 5-star reviews on Indeed.

The role is a 4-day week with alternate Saturdays. There is no night work or on-call. To provide a mix between branch and hospital work we would like you to join the Sunday Rota (only 1:8) at our RCVS accredited first opinion and referral hospital in Wanstead; The role is sole charge but is fully supported by the hospital and we use an animal ambulance service to transport critical cases.

We have excellent support staff; our lovely experienced RVN Jennifer and Ciara, our very nearly qualified student nurse. We are very proud of our great local reputation, please have a look at our lovely reviews on Google and Vet Help Direct to see why!
