Small Animal Vet Surgeon Job, Devon, England

Small Animal Vet Surgeon Job, Devon, England

Job Details: Our client have an exciting opportunity in Devon for a Vet Surgeon to join their team. They are a 100% small animal GP accredited practice and are at the heart of community life. They take great pride in developing trusted relationships with their clients, and they truly believe in working with their clients to provide the best standard of care for their animals. 

The team currently is made up of 2 vets, who have 19 and 10 years’ of experience, 4 nurses, 1 student nurse, 2 veterinary care assistants, 3 client care advisors and 1 practice manager.

The caseload within the role is varied offering you a wide scope of work. Ideally this is a full-time role, however they would be happy to discuss other alternatives with you for you to achieve a good balance between home and work.  They currently work 2 different shifts from either 8:30 – 16:30 or 11:00 – 19:30, with an average of 3 early shifts for every 2 late shifts and just 1 in 4 weekends, with time off in lieu for the hours worked. Although 8am – 7pm are considered the paid work hours at the weekend, you’ll only need to be in the practice from 08:30 – 14:00 on Saturday, only coming in in addition to this if there are emergency callouts.  

To make the most of this role, you will therefore have experience of working in practice, and you will have good medical and surgical skills.
