Type of Work: Small Animal Vet Surgeon
Job Details: Our client is looking for a veterinary surgeon to join their tream
As standard, they run 15 minute consults and schedule regular ‘block outs’ to facilitate consults running to time, giving room for more complicated consults to over-run a bit, as well as moments to catch up with admin, calls etc. They routinely book 30 minute appointments for first vaccinations, planned blood samples and euthanasia. They strongly encourage their team to leave the practice when it’s lunchtime (1 hour) and final morning consults are scheduled to finish 30 minutes before lunch to support this approach (with the same applying to closing time). Overtime is exactly that; if their team don’t manage to take a lunch break, we’ll pay - and this also applies to any hours over and above a normal working day.
It’s important to them that everyone has a voice and contributes in all aspects of life at the practice, so they aim for daily huddles where the whole team can get together and raise any concerns and/or share information. All colleagues are encouraged to add any points they wish to raise to the agenda for this meeting each day. They feel this works well for them as we’re able to address and respond to any queries promptly.
There is no obvious hierarchy in their team, they all work together really well and aim for exceptional standards of patient care, under the Practice Standards scheme. Overall their team comprises 16 colleagues and clinically, they have a strong, experienced blend of part and full time vets (5) and nurses (7). They are a dedicated Nurse training practice.
The client base is largely made up of dogs and cats and they see lots of small furries including rabbits, guinea pigs and rodents. They do not routinely see birds and reptiles. Assistant vets are not expected to do any OV work. The practice has 3 consult rooms, a separate theatre and prep area. Using a dental x-ray is standard procedure for them and they have an ultrasound, digital x-ray, electrocautery, suction, blood pressure monitor, tonometer, ECG, capnography and a pulse oximeter.
Rota: Full time vets work a 4 day week and share a rota of 1.5 in 6 weekends, which averages out as 40 hours per week. They are looking to cover full time hours, but would welcome contact from anyone looking for part time work as they could also look at shifts flexibly to split these hours between more than one applicant. There are no OOH
They allocate £1,500 and 35 paid hours of CPD for their vets and are happy to consider a certificate for the right vet. CPD funding and hours is calculated pro rata for colleagues working part time hours as they like to keep things fair.
