Type of Work: Small Animal Vet Surgeon

Job Details: Our client is looking for a veterinary surgeon to join their team. The role will involve undertaking a share of consultations and surgery, although the balance of these can happily be discussed with their Clinical Director to suit your ideal role. An area of interest would be encouraged, and funding for certificates can be available. There is plenty of scope for somebody with a special interest to receive internal referrals to build their case log and work towards further qualifications.

They are looking for a full-time Vet, although part-time candidates are encouraged to apply also. The hours of work will be from 9:00am to 7:00pm, four days a week. You will have a rolling place in their Saturday rota (8:00am-5:00pm) alongside 4 other colleagues, and gain a lieu day the following week for Saturday work. There are no out of hours with this role.

They possess digital x-ray, a separate theatre and prep area, surgical electrocautery, haematology and biochemistry capabilities in-house, a modern laptop ultrasound machine based out of Blackburn, and the option of a visiting specialist ultrasound service at all sites for those more complex cases. 

One of their strongest suits is their lovely, well-established team. They have trained all of their own nurses and a number of them are still with them after decades! Working alongside their Senior Nurses are their newer qualified RVNS and Student Veterinary Nurse team. They have a supportive and highly experienced Vet team including prior experience of orthopaedics, exotics, ECC work, and soft tissue surgery. There is a whole team culture of trying to do their best for patients and their owners, whilst making coming to work as enjoyable for one another as they can.

They have three full-time Vets and three part-time Vets, a strong new graduate already on board for September, and are seeking to add a fifth full-time Veterinary Surgeon. The Head Nurse is supported by a Deputy Head Nurse, five other Registered Veterinary Nurses, and 3 Student Veterinary Nurses.
They are looking for a confident and friendly Veterinary Surgeon who will enjoy coming in to build relationships with clients and colleagues, provide exceptional clinical standards, and relish the caseload this busy surgery will bring. Whilst case discussions are encouraged, and wider support is readily available, they require a vet who would be able to work confidently in sole charge when needed, handle most general practice presentations, and take the lead in organising their time and team. A certificate holder would be valued, someone wanting to work towards a certificate is also encouraged to have a discussion with their Clinical Director on what support they can provide.
