Over the years Ark Vet have surrounded ourselves with outstanding vets, nurses and receptionists, so that your patients can receive the high standards of care that they deserve. We pride ourselves in building relationships and ensuring that the practice ethos of trust between clients and the team is maintained.
We have (we may be a little biased) the best team. Everyone gets on and coming to work is a genuine joy. We also have (again, possibly more bias) the best clients. They make the job easy; even on the tough days, it’s worth it. We have 2 Certificate holders and a visiting Orthopaedic surgeon. Each branch has inhouse lab, ultrasound and digital X ray. Please check out our website www.arkvet.ie to see what makes us what we are.
Experience is great, and if you've done the job before then definitely get in contact, however finding the right person is so much more important. If you don't know your BOAS from your elbow don't panic, we can train you up. What we want is someone who fits into our team like they have been here since day one. Someone with the right ethics, attitude, and sense of humour alongside raw, developable talent and skill are much more important to us.
