Are we the right fit for you?

Our job is about looking after pets and their owners, but we also aim to look after our team. A happy team, with the time to do the job properly, will ultimately provide a better service to our pet owners. To ensure we are doing this we regularly consult with the team e.g. in 2021 using the VDS Training Culture Survey and also make use of DISC personality profiling for all employees. We have joined The Meraki Initiative to share a transparent insight into the employee experience and positive culture you can expect as a member of our family-team. In June 2022 we completed their employee experience survey, which was very positive.


We see a diverse and interesting range of cases, and are passionate about team development and training – we love for people to find their ‘niche’, but equally understand some people like to do a bit of everything. Check out the rest of the website to find out more about our team, what we do, and our involvement in the community. We also enjoy socialising outside of work; previous outings have included raft building, go karting, clay pigeon shooting and Go Ape as well as the usual evenings out.

This is what Ellen, one of our RVNs, has to say about working at Greenbay:

“I contacted Greenbay Vets shortly after qualifying in 2020, thinking it would be a temporary role while I finished my top up degree. Nearly 3 years on I am still here and love my job as an RVN working with such a fantastic team! Some of my favourite things about Greenbay are the high standard of care we offer to our patients and the variety of cases we see. John and Laura are very supportive in helping me to progress in my career and have enabled me to study for a certificate in my area of interest. I am so glad I chose Greenbay and wouldn’t want to work anywhere else!”

We are an RCVS Approved VetGDP graduate development practice.

This is what Jemma, who joined us a new graduate veterinary surgeon in 2019, has to say about working at Greenbay:

“I love working in such a close-knit team, the ‘Greenbay family’ – we all get on well and always have each other’s backs. John and Laura are so supportive and I know all the other vets will always be happy to discuss cases. I feel privileged to work in a practice with some of the very best and latest equipment, which means we can provide a high standard of service and care to our patients and clients, and we refer very few cases elsewhere as a result. The general diary management means that I have time to work-up cases to a high level and manage admin, meaning I feel satisfied that I have done a good job and made a difference to the animal and their owner.”
