Type of Work: Small Animal Vet Surgeon

Job Details: Our client is looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to come on board and help them distribute their work load more evenly as they grow. They are a genuine first opinion practice and they offer their clients continuity of care and options whatever their budget. They work cases up in house but have a good relationship with other practices for referral if needed. The days are a mix of consulting and surgery but this could be a consult only role. They provide admin time throughout the day and at the end of the day to avoid their team staying late.

They are a small and friendly practice with 4 vets and this role is to help expand their services and cover for two vets who have gone part time. The clients come to them because they see the same team and they are good at communicating treatment options. They treat their patients and clients as individuals. They have digital x-ray and dental x-ray. In house biochemistry. Ultrasound. They are keen to expand their skills and if someone wants to join and improve their skill set they can make this happen via CPD and placements with larger practices.

They have 4 vets (all more than 6 years qualified), one who enjoys dentistry (though they always welcome more dental vets). They are a nurse training practice and have 4 qualified nurses, 2 trainees, 1 care assistant and a dedicated reception team. Accommodation is available above the practice.


  • The consults are 15 minutes (20 currently).
  • They have a small exotics caseload which could be expanded if someone was interested.
  • Hours are spread over 3-5 days, with a flexible rota.
  • Shifts vary from 8-5, 10-7 and 8-2.
  • Saturday rota 1:3 and only 8am-2pm with two vets working.
  • No OOH and very limited sole charge. 

They are looking for a vet who is happy working within first opinion from booster vaccinations to medical case work up and basic surgeries. If someone has a specialist interest they are keen to increase their surgical case load or support someone in whatever area they want to progress in. The most important thing to them is someone who can clearly communicate with their clients and team and appreciates that care has to be tailored to the individual.
