Sorry, we do not have any vacancies at the moment
Thank you for your interest in working with us.
Heathfield has a team of five vets and 8 nurses and from time to time we do expand our team and/or replace those who move on.
If you are interested in working with us in the future, please feel free to download an application form and send it to us and we keep it on file and let you know when we next have a relevant vacancy.
Careers in the Veterinary Profession
We are an approved veterinary nurse training centre – with a strong affiliation to our local Plumpton College, which is near Lewes. www.plumpton.ac.uk
Places are very limited on their courses, so the demand is very high. Our very hardworking vet nurse trainees will all tell you that the 3 year course is demanding, but incredibly rewarding.
We pride ourselves on the amount of support we give to our trainees, which helps produce very high standards – and an almost 100% pass rate.
If you are interested in a place, please contact us by writing a letter to the Head Nurse, with your areas of studies and any interests you may have. We prefer a hand-written letter please!

Careers Advice for Students
We get lots of enquiries from young people considering veterinary medicine or nursing as a career.
The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons has good information on its website – www.rcvs.org.uk
Like most veterinary practices, we have a constant stream of people wanting to spend time with us to see what our work and lives are like.
From young people hooked on Vets in Practice, through to teenagers seriously considering a future career.
We try to encourage applicants of any level to come along and see the realities of life in a mixed general veterinary practice.
We do give priority to students already studying for a veterinary degree and needing to gain practical experience as an important part of the course.
We have to restrict our intake of younger students due to the large number of applications, but if you are interested, please fill in the contact form on the Contact page and attach a copy of your CV – we’ll get back to you.
