A rare and exciting opportunity has become available at Miramar Vets for a dedicated Practice Director to lead our amazing team and support our future development.
What you’ll be stepping into
The purpose of this role is to lead and manage Miramar Veterinary Centre, ensuring high standards of clinical and client care are provided to patients and clients, growing the business, and ensuring our key strategic priorities are embedded via our core values and company culture.
You will have key responsibilities which include financial performance, HR and Health & Safety, as well as staff retention, and working closely with the wider group to ensure all company policies and procedures are followed. This is a full-time permanent role working 40 hours per week, Monday to Friday with the opening hours being between 8:00am-6:00pm.
Our team and culture
Do you want to work for a practice that puts colleague wellbeing and happiness as a priority? Miramar have worked hard to create fair and manageable shift patterns, giving clinicians plenty of time for case work-ups, admin, telephone calls, as well as a very important rest! This alongside accommodating for each individual’s personal and professional needs and requirements in order to create a good work-life balance for all and treating everyone as individuals. We see a really interesting mix of cases, with a really good proportion of our clients insured, making investigations or referral more feasible options. The practice will have a designated Area Director and Area Support Manager who look after a small number of practices and will be able to offer 1-to-1 support and guidance.
We have a couple of certificate holders (dentistry and surgery), as well as RVNs undergoing extra qualifications in their chosen areas of interest. You will be supported by a team of 4 other vets, as well as 5 RVNs, 1 SVN, 1 ANA and a host of wonderful support staff.
Your future starts here
Our premises are fresh and new, with large consulting rooms, large waiting areas with separate cat, dog and nurse appointment areas, and a big emphasis on fear free and cat friendly principles throughout the team. We are always updating and refreshing equipment and are always keen to hear of any new pieces of kit people want to champion within the practice. All of our team are invested in providing the very best level of care to each patient that walks in the door, and because of this we have a very loyal and friendly client base.
The practice is a very short walk away from the sea front, on the beautiful North Norfolk coast, and there is nothing better on a hot summer’s day than a stroll down to the sea in your lunch break, and ice creams all round for the team! We regularly hold ‘family lunches’ where we get food in for everyone from one of the local eateries, as well as ‘Costa runs’ to keep everyone caffeinated on those busier days.
