Could you be a member of team Lynwood?

Our growth and development regularly create opportunities for our vets, nurses and front of house team.

We offer the flexibility necessary to allow you to pursue your personal career goals and find a fulfilling position that suits your own skills and work-life balance.

We boast excellent facilities and an experienced team, where everyone is a valued member of the Lynwood family and has their own unique role to play. 

Lynwood Vets are an accredited veterinary nurse training practice. Student veterinary nurses work alongside our qualified team and attend the Lynwood School of Veterinary Nursing regularly, to attain the qualifications necessary to become an RVN. 

We are a friendly, forward-thinking and supportive group of vets, nurses and support team members, and while we are proud of our diligence and integrity, we love life outside of work too. Our location also allows us to make the most of the stunning south coast and Dorset countryside. 

If you are interested in joining the team, get in touch for an informal and confidential chat. 




We are always looking for qualified vets, nurses and support team members. See our current vacancies below.

We pride ourselves on our collaborative and supportive atmosphere, led by our Advanced Practitioners and approachable team leaders. We have the loveliest clients, and every day brings something new!

We have vets with interests in medicine, cardiology, oncology, soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery, shelter medicine and forensic work, as well as hosting the Petfit rehabilitation and physiotherapy centre at our Bournemouth branch. We would encourage and support you to find your niche with our further qualification CPD program.

We believe recruiting the right candidate is more important than just filling the vacancy and would look to tailor the role to fit both your professional and personal strengths and aspirations, how ever many hours you are able to offer.

The skill set required for this role includes:

  • Aspiring to high standards of clinical and client care
  • Team player, respectful to colleagues and our no blame culture
  • Confidence working some days sole charge in a small branch
  • Surgical proficiency and confidence can be accommodated but not required

“Being part of Lynwood allows me to work to my own guiding principles of veterinary medicine and helps me to provide the very best patient and client care.

Under the umbrella of the Vet Partners group, I feel supported clinically and personally, with easy access to so many helpful resources. I have been able to adapt my working pattern to the changing demands of family life without feeling compromised in either area. I have always felt that I am part of a truly supportive and progressive practice. I feel very lucky to be here!” - L, Lynwood vet for 6 years
