Unicorn Vets are spread across three branches. We have a branch in Southampton called the Park branch with a local bus and train route close by, another branch is our Fairfield branch. This is located in Fair Oak, Eastleigh and again has local bus routes close by. Our third branch is in Ashurst, in the heart New Forest with the Ashurst train station and scenic walks and nature just a stone’s throw away from the branch. Each branch has Idexx blood machines within a designated lab area, X-rays, ultrasounds, blood pressure machine, tonopen, endoscope and an ECG.

We are looking for a positive and friendly candidate who has experience to join our Unicorn team. You must be confident with sole charge and small animal surgery including small furries. You will be a team player happy to pitch in with all manner of practice responsibilities.
