Type of Work: Small Animal Vet Surgeon

Job Details: Our client is looking for an experienced veterinary surgeon to join their team.
They are a busy first opinion practice located between Southampton and Portsmouth, and are ideally looking for a candidate with at least 3 years UK experience. A certificate holder and LVI would be advantageous, but not essential.     

You will be joining their established practice which celebrated its 20th year in 2020. The team consists of 5 veterinary surgeons (varying in experience from a new graduate to over twenty years' experience). They are supported by six registered veterinary nurses, one student veterinary nurse, one veterinary care assistant, eight receptionists, and their practice manager. In addition, six of their team have over 10 years' service with us. Not only would you become a member of their team, but also part of four other locally owned surgeries with a pool of over 20 veterinary surgeons with various interests between them.    
The practice is built to industry leading standards and includes standard and dental digital radiography, ultrasonography, endoscopy, four consulting rooms, individual cat and dog wards, isolation and an onsite operating theatre.

They would be happy to consider both a full or part-time role for the right candidate – full-time being 40 hours per week. Weekends are on a rota basis with 1 in 6 full weekends and a 1 in 6 Saturday in addition to this (equivalent to 1.5 weekends in 6).    

You should be a proactive Veterinary Surgeon with solid surgical and medical skills. You will need to be competent with all routine surgical procedures, and will need to be a strong team player, confident in assisting their more recent graduates in case work ups, who is keen to be involved and work alongside us. Key to your success will be your ability to embrace all aspects of the role, delivering excellent patient and client care, and enjoying the variety the role will bring.
