Type of Work: Small Animal Vet Surgeon

Job Details: Our client is looking for a veterinary surgeon to join their team. They are currently looking for a passionate Veterinary Surgeon to join their fantastic team on either a Full Time or Part Time basis. Day to day duties include a mix of consultations, working up medical cases and some routine surgery. Candidates will be responsible for a wide range of cases with support from experienced colleagues.

For a Full Time position the working week is made up of four days with a full day off every week. Shifts are from 9am to 6pm three days per week and until 7pm one day a week. They work alternate Saturday mornings to 12pm and 1:5 Sundays, just one or two hours if the duty nurse needs help with non-critical in-patients.

For the Part Time position it would be three days per week plus one in three Saturday mornings, hours negotiable. No OOH work for either working pattern.

They are a well-equipped practice with spacious consulting rooms and plenty of kennel space. They have ultrasound, digital x-ray, endoscopes, and a K-laser. Full in-house laboratory and a dedicated dental room with dental x-ray. The Vets all have over 10 years’ experience and include a surgery certificate holder. They have a friendly team of experienced nurses, and they are a nurse training practice. The town has many sport and leisure facilities, a cinema and easy train links to London. Beautiful Ashdown Forest is on their doorstep and Brighton and the South Downs National Park are within easy reach. Gatwick airport is only 20 minutes away for those well-earned breaks!

They have 5 experienced Vets including a surgery certificate holder and a team of 8 Nurses. There are 6 Receptionists and 2 Practice Managers. Both Practice Managers have over 20 years’ experience at East Grinstead Vets and are super supportive of the team. The candidate will benefit from lots of support from colleagues with a wealth of experience in both medicine and surgery. They hold fundraising events for local animal charities and the nearby national Cats Protect centre.

They are looking for a good team player with some experience in medicine who is keen to work up cases to a high standard. An interest in surgery would be an advantage but not essential. They are a friendly team and looking forward to welcoming a new colleague who is keen to take on new challenges.
