​We at Lloyd & Cowan are thrilled to be working with a practice who are seeking for a Veterinary Surgeon to join their team.

As a mixed practice nestled in rural South Down, it’s essential you understand the way of life of their pet owners and farmers. They’ll give you excellent backup and support along the way to achieve this.

The role is a large animal bias of 90% and 10% small animal work. The large animal split is as follows:

  • Across the year it is largely cattle work – 70% suckler and 30% dairy

  • Springtime (March-May): 50% sheep, 50% cattle (beef/cattle)

  • After May, sheep work is very infrequent.

Rota:

The role sees you work a 1 in 4 OOH rota on the weekends, with a small radius of cover. Monday to Friday you’ll work a 9am-6pm week.

Salary:

An attractive salary in the range of £40,000 to £52,000 is on offer with a view to becoming part of the practice management team in the future.

Benefits include:

  • Accommodation / vehicle available if required

  • 6.6 weeks paid holiday including Bank Holidays

  • £1750 CPD Allowance per annum – more if a certificate holder

  • RCVS Membership paid

  • Two other membership subscriptions

  • VDS cover

  • Enhanced paternity, maternity, adoption, shared parental leave and surrogacy pay

  • CPD/training support

  • Company sick pay

  • Colleague engagement survey
