We at Lloyd & Cowan are delighted to be working with a practice who have an exciting opening for a Veterinary Surgeon to join their friendly team.


The role is for 30 hours per week. There is currently no weekend rota however there could be a possibility for this in the future. There is no requirement for out-of-hours for this role but they would require the successful candidate to participate in evening shifts.

About them:

The team and working environment is very important to them and they are looking for someone to join them who shares that same ethos. They are a close-knit, team who really enjoy working together. They currently have 3 Veterinary Surgeons, 4 Registered Veterinary Nurses and 3 Client Care Coordinators. 

They 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 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 their lab area is complete with the full IDEXX Blood and Urinary machine range and microscope.

Ideal Candidate:
To be successful in this role, you must be happy with most aspects of general practice – both consulting and surgery. You must also be confident with sole charge working as although this is kept to a minimum as much as possible, it will be required. 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 we 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.
