Job Description

The role:

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a veterinary surgeon to join our great team. Our practice doesn't offer OOH, we use Vets now for that, we have an excellent relationship with surrounding referral practices. We are quite flexible with regards to rotas, all our vets work different hours however, our ideal candidate would work four 9 hour days and one in three or four Saturdays. However if you would rather work a 5 day week  and less hours per day, we are open to this also. The salary for this role is up to £50.000 DOE plus a relocation allowance of up to £5000 and a welcome bonus up to £1500

About us:

We are a 100% small animal practice with a team of experienced vets and nurses. We have 9 RVN's and we have three vets enrolled into certificates. We have a lot of staff who have worked here for a long time and we'd be happy for you to chat with any of our team members to see if this position is for you. We're all about quality, not quantity. It is important that staff get time to do a proper work up. Even in the current quite hectic situation we do everything we can to keep the workload under control and to ensure our staff have a good work life balance. We are an extremely friendly practice and have an excellent reputation with our clients.
