Job Details: An exciting opportunity has become available for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our clients Veterinary Practice.
You will carry out a mix of consulting and surgery slots, either at their main Surgery or at their other branch, where sole charge would be required. You will be responsible for your caseload and with experience, help to mentor some of their Graduate Academy Vets.
They are flexible to consider both full and part-time applicants. The full- time role is based on 40 hours over 5 days per week, between 8:30 am – 5:30 pm (some late cover in the event of evening surgery where the last appointment
would be 6:15 pm.) You will be required to work 1:7 weekends and weeknights on a rotational basis.
The flexible approach to rota patterns and working hours truly tips the scale on your work life balance. They know that everyone has demands and priorities outside of their career and they want to make it brilliantly easy for you to
strike the right balance. Whether you are looking to fix or flex your work patterns, they can find the right solution for you.
They are a modern, high quality, first opinion practice, with purpose- built facilities, shared with their farm animal team. They are a busy central hub, offering hospitalisation and overnight care for cases from their branch surgeries. The clients are an engaged and proactive group and uptake on their recommendations for investigations and workups are well received.
They have four consulting rooms and a large light reception with separate cat and dog waiting areas. The prep area is massive, with lots of natural light and leads to two theatres and an x-ray/ultrasound room; rigid and flexible
endoscopy /laparoscopic facilities are also available. A well kitted out lab complements the other diagnostic facilities.
They have 8 small animal vets, a further 6 farm vets and their sister practice has another 8 vets. They are lucky to have a wide range of experience varying from medicine/feline medicine certificate holders and an endoscopy and endosurgery certificate holder. This gives a massive breadth and depth of skills to investigate and operate on cases in-house.
They are a nurse training practice and have 11 nurses, several of which hold certificates in emergency and critical care. As they do their own on-call you will have the opportunity to develop your skills alongside the team. Learning
is always encouraged, and they promote their vets having a niche, whether that be in a discipline of medicine or surgery.
To be a vet with them you must be a great communicator and team player, in return, you will have clinical freedom and support where needed. The staff and clients together is what makes them such a great practice, they have a relationship built on generations of trust, giving them immense job satisfaction outside of work they have an active bunch of runners, climbers and bikers.
They are looking for a confident and experienced vet capable of sole charge when needed, or a vet looking to take the next step beyond the graduate programme. Good communication skills are a key asset for any candidate to be
successful, as is the ability to work well with a team. Someone who has an interest in mentoring younger graduates would be desirable.
