Type of Work: Locum Vet Surgeon

Job Details: Our client in the Isle of Man are looking for Vet surgeon to start ASAP until the end of January 2023 or potentially longer. They are looking for a locum able to do large animal, small animal and equine, but the ability to do any of these specialties would be fine.

They have an established, experienced team of 5 vets, ranging from 4-14years, with special areas of interest in surgery, ophthalmology, ultrasound, dentistry, and medicine, plus a visiting cardiologist. They believe in treating their nurses as the registered professionals that they are and their 7 RVNs and 3 ANAs offer great support to the team.

A typical day on consults would include a range of 2-hour blocks for routines, non-routines, and emergencies (on a very well managed diary). 15 minutes for standard consults or phone calls.  Each vet also has 'operation days'. These 'Operation days' allow the vets to work more in their areas of interest: surgery, ultrasound, dentistry and finishes with an evening surgery. They believe in allocating work to people's likes and strengths and so they are flexible on how each vet's week looks.

  • The working week is flexible, but the standard is 4 days Monday-Friday (8:30am-6:30pm) plus on call duties.  

OOH is supported by RVNS.  All inpatient checks are taken care of by their highly trained nurses. There is a vet WhatsApp group for support. The OOH phone has a message advising clients that is the service is for life threatening emergencies only and explains the cost for this service prior to being transferred to the duty vet.
