Job Description

**Calling all new graduates to 2-year qualified vets**

Are you looking to be challenged on a daily basis in a busy, vibrant hospital? 

Who we are?

Scott Veterinary Clinic is the only Independent Small Animal practice in Bedford and, as a companion animal and exotic practice, we see a wide range of species on a daily basis. We provide a progressive, dynamic and vibrant environment to work in and are proud to have been recently accredited Small Animal Veterinary Hospital status. Our team is made up of 14 vets ranging from 29 years-experience to new grads, including several certificate holders and an RCVS recognised Specialist, who are on-hand for support and advice. You will have access to all the usual toys from the start including digital x-ray, ultrasound, dental x-rays and endoscope. We have the ability to work up cases to a high standard in house with the option to refer locally. We encourage case continuity and have daily rounds and regular journal clubs for case discussion. 

What we are looking for

We are looking for a determined and diligent individual to join our 14-vet team on a 5-week rota position. The rota consists of one week of night duties (with an on duty nurse and with on-site self-contained flat to stay in while on shift) and a combination of 8-5/days off/12.30-7.30 shifts for the remaining four weeks for good work-life balance.   As a small animal-exotic practice you will be involved in overnight patient care of a wide range of species (from cats, dogs, small furries to reptiles and avian species). We strongly believe working OOH shifts early in your career, quickly develops your ability, skills and confidence from the beginning but there is always a senior vet on back-up for advice and assistance when needed. 

Salary and benefits

The salary starts from £31,000 and is commensurate with experience and additional qualifications. We offer a generous annual CPD allowance, BUPA healthcare (corporate scheme), discounts on pet insurance, gym membership and professional veterinary fees.

Where we are

We are based in Bedford, a busy market town with plenty of good local pubs, restaurants and activities to make up most of your spare time. There are good train-links from Bedford and if you crave the big city, London St Pancras is only a 35 minute train journey away!
