Small Animal Vet Surgeon Job, Durham, England

Small Animal Vet Surgeon Job, Durham, England

Job Details: Due to one of our clients vets relocating abroad, they have an exciting opportunity for a small animal vet to join their fantastic team based in Durham.

They are a welcoming, friendly and open team led by their JVP and veterinary surgeon, who has a particular interest in soft tissue surgery. They are supported by 2 full-time and 1 part-time vets, an experienced nursing team of 5 RVNS including the practice manager, 1 SVN, 2 VCAs and an experienced reception team. Some of their nurses are currently working towards certificates in surgery and anaesthesia. 

As a team they pride themselves to the high standard of care they provide in practice and also in providing an environment where their team can develop, feel confident and get enjoyment from their work. They hold weekly ‘huddles’ which gives all team members the chance to contribute to their protocols and make sure they are working in the best way possible for everyone.  

They also enjoy spending time outside of work together and recently took a trip up to Edinburgh together to enjoy the Christmas markets.  For the rest of the year they have a socials board so that they can keep regular get togethers planned and never miss celebrating a team members birthday. 

Due to the interests of their vet and nursing team they have a significant surgical caseload and in addition to variety you would expect in general practice, they also see a number of small furries. Their days are a mix of consults and surgery and they are happy to arrange the diary so you can get exposure and continuity of the cases or surgeries you want. Their diary includes appointments set aside for ‘on the day’ and ‘emergency’ appointments and is arranged with plenty of catchup time so that you have the chance to write up notes, call clients and work up cases to a high standard.

Working overtime is rare but if you do this will be paid or you will be given time back in lieu.

This is a part time role however they can accommodate full time hours if that’s what you’re looking for. They are also happy to discuss a flexible rota to fit around your commitments. They are ideally looking for someone happy with routine consults and surgery and whether you are looking to develop a particular interest or take on more responsibility in a senior role they can support this.

They  are open 6 days a week, 8:30am – 7pm Monday- Friday and 9am-12pm on a Saturday and are closed Sundays. Their weekend rota is 1 in 3 (potentially 1 in 4 for an experienced vet) and no OOHs will be required. They welcome overseas vets and offer fully funded visa sponsorship and help with relocation both in finding somewhere to live and offering a relocation package. They also hold two yearly pay reviews.

If you want to join a really fantastic team who are passionate about providing the best care possible to their patients this is an opportunity not to be missed! 

Package:

  • Competitive salary, dependent on experience
  • Generous CPD allowance
  • Exclusive company discounts
  • Support towards Certificates and career development
  • Free parking
  • Branded uniform
  • Paid professional fees
  • Contributory pension scheme    
  • Death in service; 4 x annual salary
