Join an experienced and caring team

Here at Wirral Vets, we've been providing quality veterinary care in Upton for over 50 years. Our team of skilled vets and nurses operates across practices located in scenic Upton, Wallasey and Birkenhead.

Our main practice in Upton was purpose built in 2017, with excellent facilities, including a hydrotherapy suite, as well as an extensive range of soft tissue and orthopaedic equipment. You would be joining our excellent team of vets, nurses and support staff, with access to all the coaching and mentoring you need. We are a progressive practice and encourage our staff to pursue their own clinical interests.

Our flexible approach to rota patterns and working hours truly tips the scale on your work life balance. We know that everyone has demands and priorities outside of their career and we want to make it brilliantly easy for you to strike the right balance.

The Wirral Peninsula is bounded by the River Mersey, River Dee, and the Irish Sea, and has beautiful beaches, plenty of 'green spaces', and some fabulous places to live potentially with the sea right on your door step.

We empower brilliant people like you to reach their full potential in a friendly, welcoming environment.

“I started working at Wirral Vets as a new graduate 7 years ago and I've been here so long that I'm now in the position of lead vet!

I really appreciate my supportive team of nurses, the good number of surgical cases and also the work we do with local charities.

We are a close knit team who really support one another and try to enjoy our days in work as much as we can.

We are always striving to better ourselves and the practice and we look forward to welcoming new team members who share the same team spirit and work ethic.”
