Job Description

Clinique Veterinaire Alliance is looking to recruit a Specialist in Diagnostic Imaging to build a high-standard radiology department, as a part of our busy developing team of specialists and referral vets in the great city of Bordeaux in South West of France.

Bordeaux is the best European city to travel (2016) but it is also a very pleasant city to live : 60km from the Atlantic Ocean, 250km from the top of the Pyrenees mountains and 30km from very nice French countryside. The area provides a very high quality of life. Bordeaux is 2h from Paris by train and it has an efficient international airport. Nice cultural and sport facilities are available thanks to a huge local demographic development. And, of course, food and wine are the best in Bordeaux !
