Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon

Would you like to work a 4-day working week in a RCVS accredited practice in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK?

We at Lloyd & Cowan are thrilled to be working with a practice who have a unique opportunity for a SA Veterinary Surgeon to join their friendly team based in picturesque Penzance, Cornwall, famous for its seaside paradise where quaint cottages crowd tiny harbours, fishing towns and coves.


The commitment to improvement has seen us develop what they believe to be the best veterinary facilities in the area, which include dentistry, x rays, ultrasound, endoscopy, full in-house diagnostic laboratory and much more to allow you to offer the highest standard of care to your patients.

You would be joining a team of four nurses, six trainee nurses and five small animal vets. They also have a visiting Vet for those more complicated cases, who you can work with and shadow to further your surgery skills and experience.


This is ideally a permanent, full-time position. The role has a limited 1:7 OOH rota, creating an envious work/life balance.

However, for the right candidate they are happy to discuss part-time and flexible working arrangements to enable them to provide the best service for their clients and give you plenty of time to enjoy the splendours that the stunning Cornish coast has to offer.

Salary is dependent on experience, starting from £33,000 up to £55,000.


  • 6.6 weeks paid holiday including bank holidays

  • £1750 CPD Allowance per annum

  • Health Shield – wide ranging contributions for health and wellbeing treatments – from dentistry to sports massage

  • RCVS Membership paid

  • Two other membership subscriptions

  • Discounted veterinary fees

  • My Perks – offers, discounts and cashback on shopping, travel, entertainment and much more

  • & many more benefits!
