Careers in the Veterinary Profession
Wicstun Vets are proud to be an accredited Training Practice for Veterinary Nurses. We have a number of clinical coaches on our team and we thoroughly enjoy guiding our students through their practical and academic studies. We have a structured approach to gaining practical experience in line with learning – there’s always a healthy dose of fun to help everything along.
We welcome student vets to spend time with us whilst studying towards their Veterinary Medicine Degree. This helps them to gain insight into everyday day life in practice. Many of our Veterinary Team spent time with us as students, some of them a long time ago! It’s always great to welcome them back.
Our support teams are here to look after the many non-clinical aspects of life in veterinary practice. Health and Safety, human resources, business administration, customer care, operational running – our support teams form a vital part of providing veterinary services. We welcome people from a variety of backgrounds and experience to the team.
