Veterinary Receptionist

Job Description

The Role

We are currently looking for a Veterinary Receptionist to join our friendly team in Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire. This is a full time position working 7 to 8 hour shifts Monday – Friday between the hours of 8am and 8pm. Weekends are currently on a 1 in 3 rota basis but may fluctuate to accommodate business needs. Saturday working hours are 9am-3pm and Sundays 9am-1pm. Due to COVID 19 restrictions we are working on a more variable rota but plan to get back to our original working hours and patterns when it is safe to do so. Duties for this role include working as part of a team, general reception duties, use of our Practice Management system, greeting clients to the practice, answering phones, stock control, general cleaning and administration work.

About Us

Taylor Veterinary Practice is one of the oldest established Veterinary Practices in the world and we have been caring for animals in the community, as part of the Cathkin Estate Glasgow, for almost two hundred years. Cathkin is our main "hub" where all surgery is performed as well as consultations. We also have 2 additional branches in East Kilbride and Clarkston for consultations only.

We have a fabulous team of 14 Veterinary Surgeons, 9 Registered Veterinary Nurses and 26 Support staff who are all eager for a new member to join the team. The right candidate for this role will find it extremely rewarding and will make a real difference to our client and patients experience.

Applicant Requirements

The successful candidate should be professional with a good telephone manner and have the ability to work on their own as well as using their initiative. They must have the ability to multitask, be of a caring nature and have the desire to provide a great service to our clients and their pets. Previous experience working in a Veterinary practice is strongly preferred but not essential as full training will be given although previous reception experience in another sector is required.

As a Disability Confident Employer we are keen to hear from candidates with disabilities and long term health conditions, and would be happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments needed during the recruitment process.
