By utilising your excellent client service skills you will ensure the highest level of client satisfaction, therefore encouraging repeat business. This includes greeting each client, offering support, guidance and expertise as well as managing payments and future bookings confidently. We use an electronic booking system so computer literacy is essential.

Person Specification

You are a friendly and welcoming face for clients when they arrive at the practice, you are able to provide guidance by keeping yourself up to date with our available services and practice protocols. You are calm, attentive and always focus on the clients’ needs. You will bring enthusiasm and drive to your role and your passion for excellent client service is matched with a love of pets. You can deal with everything that is thrown at you, from comforting a client who has had some bad news about their pet or sharing in the joy of a new puppy’s first visit to the vet. Along with your fellow colleagues, you create a welcoming and friendly atmosphere in the practice. 


Previous experience in a veterinary environment is preferred. The successful candidate would require competent maths and IT skills. They will also need to be confident with face to face and telephone client relations. As well as be able to work from own initiative and work well within a team environment.

Whilst we welcome applications from all backgrounds, we must highlight that this is a non-clinical role and career pathway. If you are interested in starting a clinical career then please seek out a Veterinary Care Assistant role or similar.


In return, we offer a fun, supportive and friendly working environment together with career development opportunities, benefits that include a pension scheme. Being part of the Pets at Home Group, you will also be entitled to 20% discount at The Vet Group, Pets at Home and the Groom Room.
