    We have created three new roles to provide clinical support, facilitating students in our Small Animal Hospital. These roles provide the perfect opportunity to further your teaching skills and test the water in a busy university hospital. You can enjoy the benefits of the unique location of Langford Vets in our own beautiful campus, allowing for city living in the vibrant city of Bristol, just 30 minutes away or take advantage of the relaxed rural location.

You will be working closely with the clinical teams in the hospital as well as our academic colleagues to ensure excellent student experience. These roles will focus mainly on supporting the student’s learning experience whilst they are working remotely including running virtual rounds, discussing cases with the students and furthering their understanding, especially focusing on the primary care aspects of each case.

    These new roles are fixed term for 8 months as this way of working is new to us all, but dependent on the success of the roles, they may be extended.

    You will support all of the small animal rotations within the hospital but as we are looking for a team of 3, there is a degree of flexibility so let us know your area of interest and we will see what we can do!
