Type of Work: Veterinary Surgeon

Job Details: Our client is looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to join their team. The role which consists of a mixture of consulting and operating time. Some consulting may be at one of their branch sites. The successful candidate will also attend clinical team meetings, clinical governance meetings and other projects to support the business.

Most of their Veterinary Surgeons work 4 x 10-hour days, but they understand that this doesn't suit every individual, so they are more than happy to discuss working patterns to suit your individual needs. This role would involve a 1 in 5 Saturday morning rota. This is only to consult for emergencies, and not routine consulting. They are a VetsNow host practice, so there will be no out-of-hour shifts required by their Vets.

They strongly believe in creating a good work-life balance, so they are happy to discuss part-time work.

They are part of a group in and around the Suffolk town of Ipswich. They are located close to the beautiful Suffolk countryside and nearby beaches, with good transport links to London, Cambridge and Norwich.

The Tier-3 hospital provides an excellent consult, theatre, and hospitalisation setting in a purpose-built site. The branch sites are consulting only. The hospital has designated canine, feline, and isolation wards, a large prep room, two operating theatres, as well as a dental suite and imaging room. The equipment includes a video laparoscope, endoscope, ultrasound, digital radiography, digital dental radiography, and IDEXX in-house laboratory equipment.

They currently have 10 Veterinary Surgeons, 7 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 2 Student Veterinary Nurses, 2 Animal Care Assistants, 2 Practice Managers,  1 Reception Manager, 1 Head Receptionist, and 9 Receptionists.
Within the Vets there are 3 certificate holders (medicine and surgery), with 2 Vets currently undertaking certificate qualifications (medicine and dentistry). 4 of the Nurses are currently studying for certificates also (medicine, surgery, ECC, and dentistry). As a practice, they get involved in community events every year such as fun days, school careers fairs, and educational visits.

They are willing to accept applications for a candidate with any level of experience, as for us, it is more about the candidate than the level of experience that they can bring the team. Less experienced candidates would be fully supported by a very experienced team. The candidate must have a valid Veterinary degree and be registered with the RVCS. A valid UK driving license is preferable but not essential. The practice is happy to support VISAs and VISA applications.

They are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to expand their team due to an ever-growing client list, it is not necessary for that candidate to be a certificate holder, or even have a desire to complete a certificate. They would just like a colleague who loves what they do and provides great clinical care. If the candidate would like to study for a certificate, then this would be fully funded and encouraged.
