An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our clients team. This is a Full Time or Part Time position with flexibility over working days / hours offering you a combination of main site and branch work – the split can be discussed. There will be a mixture of consulting and surgery with some sole charge, someone with an interest in ultrasonography would be desirable. The typical shifts are either 8am – 6.30pm or 8.30 am – 7 pm with no OOH. Saturdays mornings vary from 1:3 to 1:5.
They have 15-minute consultations for routine appointments and 30-minute consultations for more complex cases to enable a clinical workup to be performed. Consultations finish at 12 noon and do not begin again until 3 pm, this time allows for any phone calls, in-patient checks, and of course some lunch!
For those looking for that next step, they also have an excellent opportunity to become a Senior Veterinary Surgeon where you will have the opportunity to mentor less experienced team members.
They offer flexible working patterns that flex with you and your lifestyle. Whether you are looking to flex your rota hours to balance the school holidays, fix to navigate the school runs or just looking to strike that balance between home and work life. They can offer flexibility that actually works for you.
Their main branch has recently had its kennels refurbished, having a separate dog and cat ward allowing for improved patient welfare and they are soon to start refurbing the waiting area and consultation rooms. Having a separate dog and cat waiting area and increasing their consulting rooms to 3.
They have lots of toys, to name a few, digital x-ray, dental x-ray, a multiparameter anesthetic monitoring machine, blood pressure doppler, microscope, in-house biochemistry and haematology blood machines, ultrasound with cardiac and abdominal probe, laser, ECG, endoscope, and tonometer.
They have an amazing team of 7 Vets, 5 RVNs, 3 SVNs, 3 VCAs, and receptionists all working together to achieve an excellent standard of care. They would confidently say one of their unique selling points would be their team. They have several vets working towards certificates in small animal medicine, cardiology, and dentistry. You will ideally already have a certificate and be willing to mentor the less experienced team members as they encourage their vets to pursue their passions in whatever form. They are well established in the community and look after the residents of a local Cats Protection Adoption Centre. If you are looking to join a nurturing and friendly team, with a high emphasis on learning and development then they would love to hear from you.
Our clients are seeking a compassionate vet who has some sole charge experience. They do hope you will be hardworking, kind, considerate, have high energy, have a positive can-do attitude, be happy to use your initiative and use time and resources effectively, and enjoy interacting with clients. You will have good interpersonal skills with a passion for all aspects of Veterinary medicine. You will instinctively want to go that extra mile to provide the best care to your patients.
They would ideally like someone who is interested in progressing and taking sole responsibility while at the branch, ideally with a certificate and official veterinarian qualification or the willingness to train to become one.
