​Veterinary Surgeon - Full Time 

We at Lloyd & Cowan are pleased to be working with a practice in Chatham who are looking for an enthusiastic colleague to join their established team, as they are losing a great vet after eight years with them.


They have just celebrated their 10th birthday and have expanded from their original six (five of whom are still there!) to a team of seventeen. The practice is small but perfectly formed, with separate cat and dog kennelling, open prep area, dedicated theatre, isolation and consulting rooms. They have most of the usual kit and are open to purchasing more.

Their team currently consists of three full time vets, and two part time vets presently, though they are looking to expand this. All of their vets have a minimum of five years clinical experience, there are currently two certificate holders (surgery and exotics) and a colleague studying presently. The vets are supported by an excellent team of qualified nurses and one student nurse, all ably marshalled by their lovely front of house advisers!

They have worked hard to forge a strong reputation locally and have looked after each other during the last challenging eighteen months. To look after their colleagues, they are still operating with a number of COVID restrictions in place and review these regularly.

Like everyone, they have been busy recently, and would like to expand their team in order to continue to offer their clients the fantastic service they are known for.


The role is ideally full time (four day week, inclusion in weekend rota, no out of hours) but they are open to discussion about part time hours. The role can be very flexible, they are happy to have and support someone looking to progress their career with certification (medicine, imaging, ophthalmology, cardiology all desirable) or someone who wants to be a consulting vet only (they know surgery isn’t for everyone) or someone happy to simply be a good GP. There is also the possibility of partnership/ownership for the right person if that is of interest.
