Ref: 10942353

Salary: Competitive

Hours: Full-time

Contracted Hours: 37.5

Contract Type: Permanent

Location: Isambard House, Fire Fly Avenue, Swindon, Wiltshire, SN2 2EH


Here at Pets at Home Vet Group, we are proud to be one of the largest veterinary groups in the UK with a national network of around 440 practices, approximately 400 of which are operated as individual Joint Venture businesses. Over 400 practices operate under the Vet4Pets brand and the remainder are Companion Care.

Our Joint Venture model is unique to the UK vet market and it offers ambitious vets an early route to practice ownership with professional support on financing, IT, People, Marketing and supplier relations. Each partner has full clinical freedom to do whatever they believe to be right for each individual patient, including using the products of their choice. The owner mentality drives superior performance once the practice reaches maturity, compared to the typical company-owned model.

About the role

As the Partnership Marketing Partner, you will work with the team to identify medium and long-term partner requirements and develop a proactive marketing strategy to increase our pipeline of prospective partners thus ensuring business sustainability and growth.

The main purpose of this role is to work across different marketing platforms and engage with veterinary professionals, informing them of the benefits of being a Joint Venture Partner (JVP) of a first opinion small animal practice.

This is a great opportunity for a forward thinking and proactive marketing professional with a ‘start up’ mentality to join our Partnership team. The team is dedicated to providing the best service to our current partners and new prospects and, as we are a small team, working collaboratively across the team and business is essential.

  • Launching, managing and growing our Social Media channels

About your experience

You will be working with a number of internal and external key stakeholders, so the ability to form great working partnerships is essential in this role.

Further key experience/attributes include;

  • A drive to deliver results
  • The ability to work under pressure, set priorities, complete tasks and meet deadlines
