Current vacancy – January 2022


Full time vet

We’re looking for a full-time, self-motivated, experienced vet to be part of our exciting journey and join the best veterinary team in the south.

We’re happy to consider and discuss all options to fit, not just for us, but you too.  For Vetsmiths, it’s all about finding the right person, so if you’re looking for a part-time position it’s worth getting in touch to discuss the options.

The right veterinary care isn’t just about treating the pet… It’s about looking after the client too.

It’s not just about up-to-date medical treatment… It’s about care.

It’s not just about the latest appointment… It’s about being there for the journey.

It’s not just about someone you see on the day… It’s about building a long-term relationship.

It’s not just about treating the symptoms… It’s about solving the underlying problem.

The hallmark of great veterinary care is understanding what really matters and never losing sight of what you’re there to achieve

We are the WOW practice!  Want to be part of it?

We’re a family run, independent small animal vet practice – winners of the Best Independent Vets in Dorset 2021. We’re independent because it’s the only way we can meet our clients’ inevitably high standards. They will always see the same vet and we’ll make sure you get the right amount of time with them to build those important relationships.

To achieve the Vetsmiths dream, we knew we had to have the right team in place. Our people are everything and the foundation of our practice. Every member of our team has the same vision and goal in sight – to give owners and their pets the best experience they can have with us here at Vetsmiths.

We deal with everything needed under one roof making it easier for our clients.  We’ve the type of equipment you dream of working with, cutting-edge boutique-style facilities, Casco kennels with no bars, right through to the smaller details, like fresh locally ground coffee that makes all the difference (and supporting other independents).

We opened in November 2020 and despite juggling Covid have already made a name for ourselves in Dorset, and have clients coming from as far afield as Winchester – all down to recommendation.  We want someone who is as passionate about providing great veterinary care as we are.  Come and join a team who really care.

We’re so lucky to be located in the most beautiful Grade II listed building in the historic market town of Wimborne Minister on the south coast in Dorset.  It really is a beautiful part of the world to live and we’ll make sure you have the time and energy to enjoy it.  No OOH and a sensible rota, coupled with time in your working day to be the best vet you can be.
