JOIN THE TEAM Discover Life at AlphaPet

VETERINARY SURGEON

Location: Bognor | Permanent, Full time | Competitive Salary

About Us

AlphaPet is 27 years old and has grown from one small clinic with 3 staff, to a group of 3 practices and over 35 staff, including a main RCVS accredited hospital with 2 smaller branches.

We have Digital Xray, Ultrasound, Endoscopy, Cryo surgery, Radio surgery and a fully equipped lab!

There is also ample free car parking at all 3 sites.

The Team and Culture

We are a close knit team, always up for a laugh and we never leave anyone in the lurch! Many are friends outside of work and we often organise days out, dog walks, trips to the cinema, or just out for a drink or bite to eat. It has been known for us to throw “unique” Christmas parties and even regular camping trips!

We don’t shy away from sponsored events either. We have marathon runners, 3 peaks climbers and Castle abseilers, who have all done their bit for charity over the years.

A Day In The Life

Would you like to create your own role within a team of motivated, uplifting colleagues in a growing practice? Perhaps you want to work part time, maybe you only want to do late shifts (or early!) or would like to run your own branch, or maybe you are looking for a promotion and want to get stuck in to a CD role.

This is a unique opportunity to create a career that suits your experience, preferred way of working and lifestyle.

Accommodation is available if you need it. If you would like an informal chat about what you are looking for from your next practice, then please get in touch.

Make this your 'Day In The Life'

The Newsroom

For many years we hosted an annual Fun Day and Dog Show which raised several thousands for local and national charities.

We work very closely with Brent Lodge Wildlife Hospital and regularly see a wide range of wild animals, including badgers, foxes, deer, squirrels, mice, hedgehogs and birds.

Some of our staff are members of British Divers Marine Life Rescue, so we’ve even had the odd seal!

The Local Area

We are based on the beautiful south coast, which boasts a fabulous coastline and plenty of wide open space on the South Downs for country walks. Bognor is an entertainment hub with Butlins and Hotham Park, as well as a local cinema, multiple pubs and places to eat. Heaps of seaside shops and fun, including the pier and promenade train rides! There is a multiplex cinema in Chichester, with a bowling alley and various big name restaurants and on the outskirts you can even try your hand at water sports!

We have local transport links to trains that service Gatwick and London and a short drive to Portsmouth will give you plenty of outlet shopping and links to the ferries to the Isle of Wight and France.

If you fancy some history, there is also the historic town of Arundel with the Castle, lake and quaint little shops.
