Small Animal New Graduate – Quedgeley, Gloucester
Are you a new or recently qualified Vet looking for an excellent opportunity to advance your skills in small animal medicine and surgery in a supportive RCVS accredited hospital?
Our client in Quedgeley are looking for a new or recently qualified in their practice.
As a New Grad Vet here, day-to-day, you will work as the primary contact for clients, but also alongside our specialist team to ensure patients have access to gold standard healthcare without the need to travel for referral. You will be involved in the hands-on care of a range of small animals, providing both emergency and routine healthcare, and educating pet owners about how they can manage and prevent further injuries and/or sickness.
As you will be part of a Graduate Development Programme at VetPartners, you will be able to embrace a blended learning approach of training days, in-house mentoring, CPD, and clinical practice, creating a varied platform for you to grow and develop as a Veterinary Surgeon. You will be offered both supportive 1-to-1 and group mentoring sessions, for engagement and interaction, as you develop an invaluable skillset. From surgical/medical experience, to enjoying teamwork, providing refined customer service, and gaining business knowledge to support the security of great patient care. There is the potential for this to turn into a permanent role by the end of the programme.
