Ideally you will have had experience in the veterinary industry, most definitely you will have proven history working in a service industry dealing with clients face to face, it will matter to you that you give our clients the very best service. Our clients are naturally concerned about their pet, so we are looking for someone who is kind and empathetic whilst maintaining a professional and polite manner.
