Full time shifts would be 40 hours across 4 days. 1:4 Saturdays recovered as TOIL the following Friday, so you get a lovely long weekend! No out of hours work required. The rota is fixed several months in advance (unless in exceptional circumstances) and you will only work at one site per day.

You will be expected to work across both of their sites which are based 6 miles apart. They have all the usual toys including great x-ray and ultrasound facilities, separate cat and dog kennels and theatre facilities where orthopaedic work is being carried out. They strongly encourage case continuity. They are so lucky to have an excellent support team (receptionists, nurses, etc) and the lovely profile of long-standing clients in a well-off and educated part of the Country.

Lovely countryside and very close to the sea whilst only just over one hour from London and Stansted airport

They currently have six veterinary surgeons one who is a certificate holder on ophthalmology and one on internal medicine. Two vets with around 30 years’ experience each, another with 10 years’ experience and a new grad who has just joined us, so you can guarantee you will have a lot of support!

They currently have 4 RVN's and another 3 who will qualify this year, plus a large support team of VCA's and receptionists to make a vet’s life easy.

Ideally you will be a people person who is happy to work with both clients and their team. You will have ample experience to bring to the role and be able to provide a new set of skills to the existing team. Flexibility and understanding of different business models will be a bonus.
