We are looking for a highly motivated team player to provide full administrative support to the management staff at the Wanstead Veterinary Hospital.
Our fabulous Hospital Administrator Lizzy is going on Maternity Leave, so from December 2020, we will need maternity cover whilst she is away.

- Rota production and coordination for our team of nurses and vets

- Induction and recruitment of new staff
- Organisation of facilities maintenance and staff accommodation

Our ideal candidate will be an RVN who may have previous management or administration experience or someone with similar experience in the veterinary industry looking for a new challenge in a non-clinical role.

The role is a fixed term contract and is full-time; Monday-Friday (8.30am-4.30pm). Salary will be dependent upon experience and skill level but likely in the region of £25-29,000p/a.
