Type of Work: Small Animal Locum Vet Surgeon, with experience

Job Details: This is a great opportunity in Carrick-On-Shannon for long term locum work, with rates up to €370 per day, working 4 days per week 9.30-6.30 with no OOHs. This locum role is immediately available and is long term with no end date. There is potential to turn into a permanent role if you wish but the practice are more than happy to accommodate long term daily locum rates ongoing. Ideally, you need to be comfortable in routine surgeries and consults, interested in managing the small animal clinic. 

The practice is well equipped and have recently invested heavily in a new Ultrasound scanner. The owner of the business is very accommodating, and if you wish to have new equipment in the practice he will happily find the investment if that is what you need/are interested in. 

This is a mixed practice and the owner is on the road a lot, carrying out large animal calls and doing the OOH rota - A lot of the role will involve sole charge this is why the practice owner is keen to support you financially, with high daily rates and support for equipment, as he doesn't want you to feel a lack of support. The right person to this practice is invaluable at the moment so they are more than happy to support you in any way.

This is a fantastic opportunity in a friendly team of 2 vets (1 FT and 1 PT) and 2 FT RVNs, who are young and capable and more than happy to get stuck in. 

Your day would go as follows:

  • 9.20am - arrive into practice
  • 9.30am - 11am - consults
  • 11.30am - 1.30pm - surgery
  • 2.30pm - 3.30pm - surgery
  • consults until 6pm

One of the most accommodating and flexible locum roles in Ireland at the moment - friendly practice, no OOHs, practice will invest in your interests, no end date - do not miss out!
