Type of Work: Small Animal Vet Surgeon

Job Details: Our client is looking a full or part time small animal vet. They are a well-established Veterinary Hospital in West Sussex on the Southern Coast of England and have been providing services to their community for 28 years. They have 2 branch clinics within a 20-minute drive and ample, free car parking at all 3 sites. The surgery is loaded with all the usual toys including; Digital Xray, Ultrasound, Endoscopy, Cryosurgery, Radiosurgery and a fully equipped lab.

The location boasts a fabulous coastline and plenty of wide-open space on the South Downs for country walks. The surgery is made up of a large, evolving team of 5 Veterinary Surgeons, 3 Long term locum Vets, 7 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 3 Student Veterinary Nurses and 5 Animal Nursing Assistants plus, a dedicated team of receptionists and admin support. They have several team members working towards their certificates in a number of areas, and they pride themselves on being a progressive practice that actively encourages and supports personal development.

They are enhancing their client-based support by gaining their Cat-Friendly status (ISFM) along with personal cat-friendly professionals on all staff, becoming a Rabbit Friendly Practice and gaining their Fear Free Professional status, all in the aid to reduce stress and anxiety within their patients. They are a certified Bee Friendly practice, with the aim to enhance their Eco-friendly approach and sustainability. They also work closely with a local wildlife hospital, so treat a diverse range of wild animals. Some of their staff are members of British Divers Marine Life Rescue, so we’ve even had the odd seal.

The successful candidate will be interested in building strong client relationships, have exceptional clinical standards, and enjoy working within a team with some sole charge.  The ability to thrive in a busy small animal hospital would be an advantage. Certificate holders, or someone who would like to study towards one, would be desirable.  They are looking for a motivated individual, with good communication skills and excellent patient care.
