Veterinary Surgeon - Large Team of 17!

Location Chatham
Discipline: Small Animal Vet, Veterinary Surgeons
Job type: Permanent
Salary: Up to £65k + Benefits & Flexible Rota
Contact name: Sophie Gould

Job ref: SGVPDG
Published: 10 months ago

​We are looking for an enthusiastic colleague to join this established team in the Chatham area!

The practice have just celebrated their 10th birthday and have expanded from the original six (five of whom are still here!) to a team of seventeen. The practice is small but (they think) 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.

The team:

The team currently consists of three full time vets, and two part time vets presently, though we are looking to expand this. All of the 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.

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 we are known for.

The Role:

The role is ideally full time (four day week, inclusion in weekend rota, no out of hours) but we are open to discussion about part time hours.

The role can be very flexible, 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 (we 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.
