Type of Work: Small Animal Vet Surgeon

Job Details: Our client is looking for a veterinary surgeon to grow their amazing team, and we’re hoping that you fit the bill.

Would you like a consult-only role, working 0900-1600 Monday-Friday (or similar)?
Are you looking for a practice that understands that there’s more to life than work, and can offer you a role which fits around your family and personal commitments. Do you love interacting with clients and are looking for a consult-only role, with no out of hours or weekend cover? Do you want a flexible rota with opportunity to build your own caseload and see an interesting mix of patients? Then this could be the practice for you!

At this practice they offer a great work/life balance. They will actually shoo you out of the door so you leave on time, rather than ask you to stay past your shift end! Of course, emergencies happen, but they manage their diary very well and having their own out of hours team to hand over to means that you can pretty much always leave on time- unless there’s a really interesting case going on and you want to stay!

Don’t get them wrong, they are a busy practice. The days just fly by here- you never have the chance to get bored! They totally get that this isn’t for everyone, but if you thrive on being busy and learning every single day then they are the practice for you. They heavily manage the diary so the team isn't overworked or stressed- they always have same-day appointments available for the pets that need to be seen urgently. We've even stopped new client registrations for over a year to ensure this.

Being the best is important to them here, and they hope this is something that resonates with you. Not only are they an RCVS accredited hospital, but they have also been rated “Outstanding” in all six areas by the RCVS in their Practice Standards Scheme.


  • No OOH, no weekends
  • Shift patterns/ lengths/ hours bespoke to your requirements
