About Us

Hunt’s Veterinary Clinics first opened its doors in 1966 & although we were originally mixed practice, we converted our clinics to cover small animal only in November 1997 and we’ve been caring for small animals ever since. We are an RCVS accredited small animal practice with three branches. Our branches are currently running as stand-alone practices to enable social distancing within the team. Each site is furnished to a high specification so that our high standards of care are uniform across all three sites. Our practices are light, bright and spacious. We have a fantastic working environment which is credit to our wonderful, friendly team. We want everyone in our team to really enjoy their role and although at times we can be very busy, we all pull together and support each other. They are hardworking and reliable and show exceptional customer care. We are really lucky to be based in a fantastic location! All three of our sites are just a short distance from the centre of Manchester for those of you that like the hustle and bustle of the City, but also just a short journey out to the beautiful Peak District National Park. Geographically, a perfect location to lay down roots!

Applicant Requirements

The right candidate must be a Registered Veterinary Nurse with some post qualification experience although a final year SVN will also be considered. The successful applicant will be able to work as efficiently both when working alone or as part of the team. We need someone who is reliable but also fun too! The team are mega friendly and are eager to help in any way to support a new member of the family.
