Type of Work: Small Animal Vet Surgeon

Job Details: Our client is looking for a confident Veterinary Surgeon to join their team. You will be based 50/50 between their two lovely practices. They are looking for someone who has an all-around knowledge and who can manage all the normal Vet duties including occasional sole charge, (another Vet will be available at the other surgery).

This is a Full-Time or Part-Time role on a temporary / contract position (Maternity Cover) with the opportunity for extension. The vets work 39 hours per week over 4 days. The shifts include 9:00am-7:30pm, or 10:00am-6pm and one day off every week with Fridays on a 1:4 rotation, with no out of hours. They can be flexible on shift patterns.

Both surgeries are well equipped, with their main work done at the premises (xrays, scans etc). They have a great local reputation and enjoy being very much part of the local community. Currently they have 4 Veterinary Surgeons, a Practice Manager, 7 Registered Veterinary Nurses and 2 Receptionists. You couldn't find a friendlier team! They have amazing staff retention; most have been here for many years. Everyone is super supportive, clinically, physically, and emotionally. They have great clients, almost all of who have come to them from a personal recommendation, and they are renowned for the personal attention they give to their patients and their owners. They are looking forward to getting involved again with community projects, such as local dog shows and school visits. Several of their staff bring their own dogs with them to work and they can always find a peaceful place for them to settle down!

They are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon with some experience as this role will sometimes require you to work on your own. They don't need any further qualifications apart from MRCVS, but they would be happy to encourage an applicant who is looking to do a certificate etc. Good humour and the ability to laugh along with the team on those tougher days is definitely a benefit!
