About Us


We’re a small tech start-up and we have big plans to break many of the existing models of training, information sharing, leadership and recruitment. And we are fortunate to get to do this with one of the most fun and passionate audiences on the planet, veterinary professionals. If you like animals, you’ll love this crowd.

We exist to help veterinary surgeons thrive in their roles in practice and help them to help improve the lives of animals all around the world.

We do this by offering training, mentoring and career advice for veterinary team members and practice owners/managers. We then also help people to find the right "veterinary family" for them so both practice and person can thrive.


About The Job


The job has five main parts:

1. Executive Assistant to the CEO – doing admin, diary management and other random bits and pieces from time to time.

2. Manage our online communities and keep them engaged and loving our products and memberships.

3. Manage and run our SEO, PPC and social campaigns, including do the creative and work with our freelance designers when you get stuck.

4. Helping to drive sales via campaign management.

5. Organising all of our freelancers/collaborators/contributors/influencers so they do what they have committed to do.


About You


We need someone to join the team initially as our business assistant. This means you’ll be doing a lot of varied work and have quite a lot of responsibility. So this is not a role for you if you are not into working hard, learning fast and growing your skills set.

If you are a “get-sh*t-done”, love-to-complete-tasks, problem-solving kind of person, this is going to blow your mind. And it comes with great future prospects because we are looking for someone who might just develop into our Chief Operating Officer if we get this right.

You’ll also share some of the following values that matter a great deal to us:

1. Getting sh*t done – we’re building a culture where the ability to commit to action and get things done is highly valued.

2. Teamwork – great things are not built by individuals, they are built by teams.

3. Being OK with a certain amount of change and moving fast.

4. Trust, respect & honesty – treating each other well matters, without this we have no culture.

5. Doing good work we can be proud of, work that makes a difference.

6. Fun – we want to enjoy the work and people.


Benefits & Salary


In return for your hard work, we can offer the following:

1. The title of Business Assistant.
2. A starting salary of £20,000/annum.
3. Pension contribution.
4. Annual performance related bonus – if we win, you should win too.
5. Free advice on your pet’s health if you have them (The CEO is a vet and owns a practice in London!)
6. Feedback and training budget to rapidly help you upskill.
7. Four weeks paid holiday per year plus bank holidays.
8. Personal and professional growth.
9. The knowledge that the work you are doing matters and you are helping veterinarians around the world do their job better.
