We have an exciting opening for a Veterinary Surgeon to join a friendly team based in the West Midlands. The role is full time, 40 hours over a 4 day week, however they are happy to offer part time hours and flexible working also for the right candidate. You will be required to participate in a Saturday morning rota and there is no out-of-hours requirement for this role. The role could suit someone looking to progress to a senior role although this is not essential.

About the Practice:

The practice has great links to the whole country you are never far from anywhere with places like the Peaks, the Lakes, the Cotswolds and coast driveable in 3 hours or less. The major city of Birmingham, with its vibrant hustle and bustle, is less than 30 minutes journey away by car or train. For those that prefer the outdoors, the countryside is easily accessible in all directions.

The clinic opened in 2013 and are a small animal only practice. They are equipped with a great quality ultrasound machine, multi-parameter monitoring and digital x-ray (including dental). They have also recently achieved their silver cat-friendly status. The prep area is the heart of the building with separate dog and cat wards, an operating theatre and x-ray/ultrasound room branching off. There are 3 consulting rooms with access to dispensary and our lab area complete with the full IDEXX Blood machine range and microscope. They have a separate team room with comfy sofas so you can relax on your breaks.

The Ideal Vet:

They ideally would like someone who is happy with most aspects of general practice – both consulting and surgery. You must also be confident with sole charge working although this is kept to a minimum as much as possible. In this role you will be required to provide high-quality clinical care to all pets whilst ensuring an outstanding client experience and to help to create and maintain an efficient clinic. The diary is sensibly managed meaning they leave on time with consults finishing half an hour before the end of shift, and there is time factored into the day for case work ups and phone calls.

They are a close-knit, team who really enjoy working together. Currently have 2 Veterinary Surgeons, 5 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 1 Veterinary Care Assistant and 3 Client Care Coordinators.

Recent sessions at included playing games, carving pumpkins, watching Cool Runnings and being creative with cupcakes.
