Type of Work: Small Animal Vet Surgeon

Job Details: Our client is looking for a veterinary surgeon to join their team. They have a multi-centre veterinary practice with six branches located across Newcastle upon Tyne and Northumberland. They focus on providing a high quality of care for all their patients and are looking for an experienced veterinary surgeon to complement their friendly team.

When you join them, you will benefit from working with an experienced and diverse team including 4 certificate holders (specialties include surgery, small animal medicine, and cardiology) and 5 vets currently working towards certificates (including dentistry and emergency and critical care). They are lucky to also have a great team of support staff including 14 RVNs and SVNs, 3 animal care assistants, and an abundance of helpful reception and administrative staff. A number of their wonderful RVNs are trained in schedule 3 procedures, allowing their vets time to deal with more complex cases, and they also have RVNs working towards further qualifications in ECC, behaviour, and feline nursing. There is a great atmosphere amongst the staff and help is always at hand for the trickier cases!

Facilities you will benefit from include:

  • Direct digital radiography
  • Ultrasonography with Doppler
  • In-house laboratory
  • ECG
  • Dental radiography
  • CT scanner
  • Endoscopy
  • Laparoscopy (currently offer laparoscopic spays but scope to expand to further laparoscopic procedures in the near future)


Time will be split between consulting, surgery, medical procedures, and dentistry. There is an option of being included on their ECC rota – ECC vets deal with on-the-day emergencies only, allowing other vets to deal with their pre-booked procedures only and not squeeze in extra emergencies. You will have a dedicated ECC nurse for these shifts and deal with a range of interesting and exciting cases. Consulting is split between their main site and one of their 5 branches.

They are looking for an enthusiastic, caring veterinary surgeon with excellent communication skills. Experienced applicants and certificate holders preferred but they will consider more recent graduates with a drive for excellent care provision.
