A Career at Animal Ark

As one of the largest providers of high quality veterinary services in Essex & East London we are continually seeking like-minded people who have a strong desire to practice quality medicine, excellent patient care and are dedicated to maintaining their professional skills at a high level.

Our philosophy is to provide compassionate and high quality veterinary care and to reinvest in our facilities and team. We are strongly client focused, progressive and professional.

We are accredited under the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Practice Standards Scheme and are also a registered Training Practice (TP) providing veterinary nurse training.

We place a strong emphasis on professional development, providing a supportive environment and are committed to continuing education.

We hold regular team meetings to assist with the smooth flow of communication and information whilst also using the benefits of easy to use technology communication tools available today.

Our facilities are modern, and fully-equipped with all the toys, providing a working environment which is busy, stimulating and well managed. We encourage team members to work to the best of their ability, supporting them with development of skills and ambitions, and encouragement to embrace new responsibilities and thereby take an active role in their career progression – to become a master of their profession.

One critical aspect of our recruitment process is ‘team fit’ – we believe in what we do, we love what we do, and it is crucial for a new recruit to be successful it has to be the ‘right fit’ for both the new recruit and the team.

Our Values

Our values form the guidelines of ethical personal and professional conduct against which our actions can and are measured.

Our Clients

There is a saying that any organisation attracts the clients they deserve. In this regard we feel blessed. We have a very popular following, drawing upon far outside the normal catchment area. This is a function of not only the quality of care we provide, but our strong client focused approach.  By involving our clients in the decision making process we have seen multiple benefits, firstly to the team in that treatment plan discussions are a pleasurable experience, and second but most importantly, there is an increase in patient welfare as the pet receives the treatment that is needed.

Living and Working on the Border of Essex and East London

Our location on the border of Essex and East London gives our team the opportunity to a choice of lifestyle. For the urban hipsters, central London is just a single 20 minute train ride away. For those who enjoy the quieter rural life, country Essex is on the doorstep.
