Job Description

Southern Isles Veterinary Practice is expanding! 

We are recruiting a mixed veterinary surgeon to join our small team at our independent island practice. We are based on the Isle of Benbecula in the windswept and beautiful Outer Hebrides, off the North West coast of Scotland and cover the whole of the Southern Isles, comprising 6 islands from Berneray to Barra.

Work comprises approximately 45% large animal, most of which are kept on crofts (small holdings) and a few small farms. Small animal work takes up a further 45%, with the balance being Equine. The small animal work ranges from routine consultations to more advanced surgery, and our equine client base is growing steadily.

You will be working alongside the practice owner and veterinary assistant. The current on call rota is 1 in 3 (Our current long-term locum is leaving in December).

Although this is ideally a full-time post, we are happy to hear from candidates who would prefer flexible/part time working hours, the package would be adjusted accordingly.

We are very keen to support a candidate through certificates/ further training and there is real scope for development in areas of personal interest which could then be offered as a new service at the Practice. We have all the standard equipment, including digital x-ray, brand new PMS, tup and bull fertility testing equipment, small and large animal biochemistry machine, large animal scanner - We are in the process of modernising the Practice further and are always looking for ways to expand and improve the service we offer to our clients.

This is an unrivaled opportunity for those that are interested in o

Outdoor pursuits such as hill walking on the rugged east coast of Uist, surfing the waves of the golden beaches of the west, bird watching from sea eagles to corncrakes, fishing for salmon, sea and brown trout on the many freshwater lochs and wild swimming for hardier souls! A chance to work surrounded by some of the most dramatic and beautiful scenery in the UK.
