Oakfield Veterinary Surgery, Castle Bromwich
Salary for the role is up to £63,000 depending on experience. 

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our happy team here at Oakfield Veterinary Group, Castle Bromwich!

At Oakfield no two days will be the same, but some daily duties will include a mixture of surgery and consultations in general practice.


Our flexible approach to rota patterns and working hours truly tips the scale on your work life balance. We know that everyone has demands and priorities outside of their career and we want to make it brilliantly easy for you to strike the right balance. Whether you are looking to fix or flex your work patterns, we can find the right solution for you.

This is a full-time, temporary mat leave position working 40 hours across 4 days per week that gives the perfect work/life balance to the right candidate. Saturdays are on a shared rota. There is no out-of-hours requirement. The role has the potential to become permanent in the future.
