We at Lloyd & Cowan are pleased to be working with a practice who are looking for a full or part-time Vet to join their friendly and experienced team.

About them:

They are a progressive RCVS accredited practice based in beautiful south-east Cornwall. After over 120 years of looking after the local animals, both large and small, they became a small animal practice in 2017. They are very lucky to have a team that really is one in a million, they currently have 9 vets with an average of 16 years’ experience each.

They have an extensive range of modern equipment including digital and dental x-ray, endoscopy/bronchoscopy, ultrasound, tonometer, slit lamp, diathermy, cutting-edge anaesthetic monitors, plus orthopaedic kit.

About You:

Whether you’ve only recently graduated or you’re an experienced vet looking to increase your skills and develop your own niche, they can offer you the supportive environment and guidance needed to flourish.

The role:

They prioritise a good work-life balance and that includes getting to enjoy your free time in the evenings. Most nights you’ll be finishing at 5.30pm as the duty vet starts at 5.15pm to help close up and take over any inpatient care.

They provide their own OOH’s, and it is arranged in 10-week blocks, of which you have 8 weeks with absolutely no duties. During your on-call week, you are also not required to work in the practice during the day. Also, they have a dedicated Wednesday night vet, so you’ll have the whole of Wednesday off.

The weekend rota takes place over 2 consecutive weeks; on the first weekend you will just have Saturday morning consults (9am -12.30pm), then you’ll be off until 6am Sunday when you’ll be on-call until Monday at 8.30am, work until 1pm and then you’ll be off until Wednesday. The second week you will consult on Saturday morning, then be on-call until 6am Sunday, plus you’ll get the following Wednesday off.
