Salary: £31k - £44k DOE

Package: Professional fees paid, generous CPD allowance, pension

Type of Work: Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon

Job Details: Our client have 12 practices currently and have recently opened 3 new practices. They have a principal site where they provide first opinion treatments plus referral services for their own clients and other practices. Additionally, they have their own dedicated night teams. The facilities at all the sites are contemporary and they have a culture of discovery to ensure they stay ahead of the latest findings and recommendations.

Teams at the 11 community practices are close knit as they run these smaller practices as if it’s their own business, creatively providing clinics and services relevant to the local area and the needs of their clients and their pets. This is a fast paced practice with exceptional specialist equipment in situ. There are a number of wards for hospitalised pets and they specifically keep cats and dogs in separate wards.

This Small Animal Vet role will be a mixed of branch work and work at the hospital, so it will involve the usual routine procedures from 1st opinion pet care and maintenance but there will also be frequent situations where the route to the prognosis could be an interesting journey. There will be some sole charge work for this role, so you will need to be confident in making decisions and taking responsibility for treatments. The role offers a great work/life balance – just a 4 day week, with 1:6 weekends and no OOH.

Client facing skills are integral for this 1st opinion Vet position, so we need applicants that really enjoy direct contact with the animal’s people. The practice have a regular returning customer base so naturally having the skills to build long term relationships is an asset. Applicants would benefit from a number of years’ post graduate experience within UK practice.
