Work with us

In 2023 Animal Trust turned 11 years old! Our not-for-profit veterinary company was founded by Owen Monie in 2012 and Ellesmere Port was opened in 2017. Here at Animal Trust we believe that every pet has the right to access good veterinary care. Our vision is that no pet goes untreated or faces euthanasia for a condition that has a good treatment option. We offer free consultations for sick and injured pets and our profits are re-invested straight back into the business to benefit our mission, rather than distributed to shareholders.

We are lucky to have an excellent team based at Ellesmere Port including both our clinical members that look after the poorly pets and our non-clinical team that look after all of us! We're passionate about our people and want them to feel fulfilled in their roles.

Our vet and nurse team are diverse and we play to our strengths. Whether you're surgical/imaging/medically biased we try to build our rotas around what our staff enjoy. This allows us to diagnose and treat the majority of our patients without needing to refer and the potential scope for learning and development is huge.

We want to continue widening access to our veterinary care and we're always open to new team members. If you think you might like to become a part of our journey, please get in touch and we'd love to talk to you about potential opportunities.
