We are representing a clinic who are going through an exciting period of growth and are looking to add a dynamic veterinary surgeon to their team.

The position will entail covering our first opinion and surgical workload, with the opportunity to work at the other sites in the group. This role would suit an enthusiastic vet looking to help shape the new future of this large and growing veterinary partnership. They can support new graduates and readily welcome experienced veterinary colleagues that wish to further develop their skills and specialist interests.

They have a flexible approach to rota patterns and working hours offers a balance that truly flexes with you and your lifestyle no matter what stage you are in your career.

This transformation includes new ways of working, role development and enhancement and a defined clinical strategy with associated service development and development for the entire team. They are committed to developing the clinical and support teams to ensure they can meet their short, medium, and long-term goals.

The Team:

The group have over 30 vets working across all disciplines and ranging from new graduates to established senior colleagues with many years of experience and knowledge to share with the team.
