Here at Lloyd & Cowan we are delighted to be working with a practice who are looking for a Vet to join their friendly, experienced, and supportive team on a full or part time basis.

About us
They aim to provide a working environment where everyone can work to their potential and utilise all the skills they bring to the team. They’re also open to change and welcome input from their team to make sure they're doing things in the best way possible.

They are an in-store practice located on a retail park and have a separate branch in nearby. Whilst the two practices operate separately day to day, they do work together to ensure consistent clinical governance and level of care.

The practice is based in Essex and is a market town that offers a great balance between beautiful rolling countryside and city life. Food markets, vineyards, breweries, cafés, and a castle complete with jousting nights are just some of what their area has to offer. Their location also makes them well connected transport wise being just 1 hour from London by train and having 2 airports within a 40-minute drive and a ferry port on their coast.

About you
This position would suit a Vet confident with routine consults and presentations looking to take on a new challenge. They will support CPD in any clinical area you are interested in and, anyone with aspirations to take on a more leadership focused role or looking to mentor others. Their caseload presents the great variety you would expect from general practice and their new Vet would get good exposure to surgeries. They also welcome peri-paretic orthopaedic and soft tissue surgeons for their more complex cases as well as a cardiologist who are happy to support their team should they have an interest in their area of specialism.


This is a full-time role but they are also happy to speak to anyone looking for part-time hours or a job-share type arrangement. Their weekend rota is 1 in 4 and this is the only sole charge you would be required to work. Full time includes working 4 days/week and while they would prefer someone who can work full days are happy to discuss any other working patterns at interview.

They offer a salary of up to £65K which is negotiable depending on experience (pro rata) in addition to an excellent benefit package including but not limited to:
•Paid RCVS, BVA and VDS memberships 
•Generous CPD allowance
•5.6 weeks holiday per year, increasing to 6.6 weeks after 2 years services
•Visa sponsorship
