New Practice Openings - Warrington, plus additional opportunities across the North West

  • Package: +£60k +Profit Share + Equity
  • Full Time

Come and be part of something special

The opportunity

Our new, innovative, joint venture model is opening new practices in two amazing locations, and we’re looking for the right people to make them a success. 

This is an opportunity to become an equity partner – no investment required – in your own practice, to have the freedom to recruit your own team and to run it as you wish. Plus we’ll give you the support and expertise of a highly experienced team, covering finance, HR, property, marketing and clinical practice. 

All we need from you is a commitment to uphold our standards and ethics, and to develop a modern, forward-thinking, compassionate experience for our clients and patients.

The role

As the practice director, you will be expected to carry out a wide range of tasks, leading your clinical team, caring for pets and setting standards. 

North Star Vets is committed to designing the best care package possible for each client and patient, and you and your team will be responsible for delivering that service in your practice.

The successful candidate

We’re looking for a candidate with a minimum of three years of post qualification experience, who is confident and capable of handling the day-to-day tasks of a small animal veterinary surgeon.

They will also be a leader and a convincing communicator, capable of hiring and managing a team motivated to deliver a fantastic service. 

We want somebody who is excited by our goal of creating the best independent practices possible, and who can bring new ideas to the table in our pursuit of this.

The package

As well as a generous starting salary, we’re offering both a profit share and an equity stake to the successful candidate. That means owning equity in a practice without having to borrow a huge sum of money to buy-in. 

Naturally, we’ll provide generous CPD funding and support any ideas to grow your practice. We believe in a work-life balance with 25 days holiday, plus bank holidays and no nights. 

We have ambitious plans to open practices across the North West in the near future, with further joint business opportunities for motivated vets.
