Veterinary Surgeon, Small Animal Vet


£35 - £50k DOE

Job description

We are looking for an enthusiastic and caring Small Animal Vet to join an amazing team of 6 Vets and 3 Nurses. A well-known, 100% Small Animal Practice, established for over 25 years has a brilliant opportunity for you to join the team. 

An opportunity exists for you to expand the clinical team in a practice keen to keep key clinical skills in Primary Care Practice. The Practice runs several in-house healthcare plans which, unlike the majority of schemes, provides both routine (preventative) and non-routine (accident and illness) care for member animals. To service these schemes, it is vital that we maintain a team of Veterinary Surgeons who share our desire to develop and maintain a broad range of clinical and surgical skills within the practice

The usual diagnostic aids are available (digital x-ray, both standard and dental units, ultrasound, video-endoscope, in-house clinical biochemistry) which will allow you to investigate your patient’s problems, and then to guide the owner through the various clinical and surgical options.

The Ideal Candidate:

The ideal Candidate would be an experienced small animal Vet. We are looking for a compassionate, caring Vet who is a good communicator and is looking to develop long term relationships with clients and their pets. You’ll be a team player but also able to act on your own judgement and make decisions when needed.

The role:

The rota will be worked on a 1:4 basis, allowing a great work-life balance and giving you plenty of time to enjoy the nearby Lake District, which is just 35 minutes away.

Our Vets are supported by five RVNs together with an animal care assistant and student Veterinary Nurses.

Yes, we do our own OOH work, but being a small practice, this is not onerous. 

What we can offer in return:

  • We are delighted to be part of the VetPartners group, who offer a generous CPD budget. We encourage and will fund further study to certificate level for the right candidate.
  • Salary will be dependent on experience and upon hours worked (we can accommodate a working week between 20 and 35 hours)
  • RCVS fees and one Veterinary subscription paid for.
  • Healthshield Policy.
  • Pension
