We at Lloyd & Cowan are pleased to be working with a practice who are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to join their friendly, supportive, forward-thinking team. This opportunity is open to both full and part time applicants, offering a flexible working approach. There are no OOH and only 1 in 3 Saturday mornings to ensure a great work-life balance. 

You will be caring, hard-working, dedicated to providing the best care for your patients and clients as well as possess excellent communication skills. In return you will get plenty of support from a friendly and capable team, the opportunity to discuss cases, to learn and to further develop your veterinary skills.

About them:

They are a friendly, long established small animal practice that has proudly been caring for Northampton’s pets for over 60 years. You will join their 4 other vets, 4 qualified RVNs, a student VN, a Veterinary Care Assistant and dedicated reception staff.

The practice is a large building, and their large RCVS Tier 2 premises was recently refurbished.  With comfortable staff areas (including a Nespresso coffee machine!), large, light, and airy consulting rooms and large waiting areas - separate for cats and dogs. They are well stocked with a brand-new digital x-ray and new dental x-ray, ultrasound, endoscope and in-house lab enabling you to work up to cases to a high level. They have a large kennel area, dedicated dental suite and large theatre with a multi-parameter machine. 

They consider themselves a small, friendly, and inclusive team. They actively support and encourage well-being, as individuals and as a wider team.

Applicant Requirements:

They are looking for a friendly and approachable person who works well within a team. As there may be a need to travel to their other branch a short distance away, a driving license and own car would be beneficial. 

They would especially love to hear from those who have an interest in exotics and would support those who wanted to further develop skills in this area. 


Salary up to £75,000 depending on experience plus a welcome bonus up to £5,000 and relocation allowance up to £5,000

In addition to a competitive base salary, you will benefit from -

  • 6.6 weeks annual leave

  • Cycle to Work scheme
