We are seeking an additional laboratory technician to support the current team in the daily analysis of clinical specimens from horses.
We perform daily testing Monday-Saturday in haematology, biochemistry, endocrinology, microbiology, parasitology and serology. We are especially interested in applicants with a good knowledge of working in clinical (human or veterinary) diagnostic laboratories.
HOURS This position is offered on a full or part time permanent contract (Monday-Friday) and includes working Saturdays on a rota basis for which time off in lieu is provided.
LOCATION You will be based in the laboratory at the Liphook Equine Hospital and due to the rural location own transport is essential.
The hospital requires that a very high standard of service is provided and previous experience in clinical laboratory diagnostics is ideal. Although team-work is an important facet of the role, there will also be a requirement to perform techniques competently without supervision.
A competitive salary package is offered.
Please submit applications including a covering letter and current cv along with details of your current salary and package to Andy Durham, Clinical Director, Liphook Equine Hospital, Forest Mere, Liphook, Hampshire GU30 7JG or by email to email@example.com.
Due to a change in circumstances an opportunity has arisen for a first class receptionist/administrator, ideally with equine knowledge, to join the Practice as part of the hospital reception team.
The team are responsible for providing a friendly, efficient and caring service and are the first point of contact for incoming enquiries from referring veterinary surgeons and clients. The role will involve a great deal of time on the telephone and candidates must have an excellent telephone manner and an exemplary attitude to customer service combined with the ability to stay calm under pressure. The successful candidate will be computer literate, very well organised and comfortable working in a busy office environment and as part of a small team. Experience of horses is definitely preferred but experience within a veterinary practice is not essential.
The role is based in our state of the art equine hospital in Liphook, Hampshire. Due to the rural location of the practice own transport is essential. This is a permanent full time position working Monday to Friday plus Saturday mornings on a rotas basis. A competitive salary will be offered commensurate with experience.
If you wish to apply please send a current cv with covering letter including details of your existing salary package and the names and addresses of two business referees to Barbara Thornley at The Liphook Equine Hospital, Forest Mere, Liphook, Hants, GU30 7JG or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vets and horse owners need to work together to tackle wormer resistance
To help find a solution to the rapidly growing problem of resistance to equine worming products, we are delighted to launch Project Worms.
In this first stage of Project WORMS we are looking for horse owners/keepers and stud owners/managers to complete a short questionnaire about how they currently control worms in their horses. The horse owner survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete, and the stud owner/manager survey around 20 minutes. Your responses are anonymous, but you can at the end be transferred to put your details into a prize draw to win £100 ‘Love to Shop’ vouchers.
