Job Details: Our clients practice based in stunning Suffolk are looking for a motivated Veterinary Surgeon to join their talented team across their 3 RCVS accredited branches.
They have a team of 4-5 Vets and 5-6 Nurses, with one of their practice consisting of 3 Vets and 4 Nurses, and another practice consisting of 3 Vets and 4 Nurses. They have a vet with an Ophthalmology certificate, one working towards an ECC certificate and nurses working towards anaesthesia and exotics certificates. All the practices also have very proactive and friendly support teams.
They’re open to an experienced Vet, but they would also be happy to support a less-experienced candidate who wants to build up their confidence in surgery, as this will be key to the role. They are looking for someone who wants to be part of a team that are always striving to provide the best care for their patients and to share their knowledge with each other.
Their full-time Vets work a 4-day week, covering 36 hours. However, they are amenable to part-time and flexible working, for the right candidate. They are also more than happy to consider consult-only, if preferred.
Out of hours their vets have one duty night every fortnight which only involves being back up to the on-call nurse for any inpatient concerns – no phone calls from clients. In a 10–12-week rotation you would have one weekend as first-duty vet, which involves working 8.30-5 on Saturday (for which you receive a day off in lieu) and 9-12 on Sunday; and one weekend as second duty vet, which involves working 9-12 on Saturday and then just being available if the first-duty vet needs a second pair of hands after that.
Their strongest asset is their team, and they encourage input and feedback from all members in order to improve and evolve the service they offer. Your opinion is important to them, and they encourage everyone to get involved and have a say on the way they practice.
If you would like to join our clients winning team and you share their passion for delivering outstanding pet healthcare and great customer service, then we would love to hear from you!
