Type of Work: Small Animal Vet Surgeon

Job Details: Full time Veterinary Surgeon required, preferably with a few years’ experience to support our clinical director and junior vet. This practice have a varied workload and a loyal client base. The ideal candidate must have experience in all aspects of routine first opinion practice, and any areas of interest will be supported and encouraged. Currently their vets work 4 days a week and 1 Saturday morning in 3, and there is no on-call or out-of-hours as there is a dedicated night clinic nearby. The role also has the potential for career progression to become the Clinical Director.

A small, friendly team of 11, comprised of 2 vets, 4 RVN's, 1 SVN and 4 support staff - several of whom have been there for many years! Located in a seaside town, which has various attractions and the all-important seafront promenade, complete with many restaurants and great views. The surgery has digital x-ray, ultrasound and in-house laboratory equipment as well as a dedicated surgical room, separate kennels and cattery and upstairs staff room. The clinical director is a cardiology certificate holder and takes referral cases from the local area and charities.

Ideal candidate would be an experienced veterinary surgeon who is comfortable with routine surgeries and dentistry. The practice welcomes anyone undertaking or wishing to undertake certificate studies, particularly orthopaedic as they have a large range of equipment to support this. A good sense of humour and willingness to become part of a team is essential, as is the ability to engage with a client base that has a lot of interesting characters. They need someone who is willing to muck in with everyone, be a team player but also keen to potentially take on a more leadership style role as they move forwards.
