Great opportunity for you to thrive in Driffield

Job Description

Great opportunity for you to thrive and become member of a growing small animal practice in Driffield, East Yorkshire. This would suit a recently qualified practitioner with a broad range of interest, looking to continue their veterinary journey and hopefully set down roots. You'll have full clinical freedom and support to continue to build on a well-established practice base and to be part of a close clinical team.

You will be involved with all aspects of the practice from first consultations through clinical work ups and surgical cases. This could suit someone looking to study for a certificate in the future with time available within the rota to complete this. You will be a self-motivated small animal vet looking to embrace general practice with the huge variety of cases, people and animals it presents, as well as enjoying great work/life balance as part of a dedicated vet team.

As a confident communicator you look forward to meeting and talking with clients on a daily basis, as well as greeting and caring for their companions. You also have a passion for striving to provide the best care possible for your patients and working as a part of a small dedicated team to this end. On call is only one week night every two weeks, and one weekend every three months.

The salary package will be in line with your experience. CPD is encouraged and funded as is study for a certificate. You will get 23 days holiday plus five of the eight bank holidays. This role is also only a 4 day working week!

Bridge Street Vets was established in 2013 but in a relatively short time has become a very well respected and most recommended practice in the town largely due to our people orientated approach. We occupy a former doctor’s surgery, within which we knocked down a few walls and moved a few doorways and, hey presto, a spacious, sunny environment to work in. (As you'll see from the pictures on our web page we also did quite a lot more.)  We are proud to show new clients around and everybody is impressed on the standards of the premises and the cleanliness and space.

  • Facilities include;
  • Two consulting rooms with height adjustable tables (with a third planned),
  • Two waiting areas,
  • Separate dog and cat inpatient wards,
  • Isolation ward,
  • Imaging room, with digital x ray processor and ultrasound scanner
  • In house IDEXX  haematology and biochemistry analysers,
  • Dedicated operating theatre
  • Large preparation area
  • Dental station with nitrogen powered air tools and ultrasonic scaler.

In addition we have our own fully equipped ‘Sunshine Groomers’ salon with two full time groomers employed by the practice. The south facing gardens to the rear provide us with the ideal place for a quiet and relaxing sunny summertime lunch breaks.

As a VN training practice we are proud of our first trainee who qualified in 2017, with a second due to qualify this year and a third looking to start training in Autumn. Together they form the backbone of a well-run and organised practice.

Driffield, a former market town at the foot of the East Yorkshire Wolds, lies between the historic city of York to the west and the picturesque East Coast sandy beaches, firmly in the heart of David Hockney country. It is ideally placed for a broad range of pastimes and outdoor pursuits. There are local schools from infant through to sixth form within the town, and a good stock of new and traditional houses. It has its own sports centre and swimming pool, a variety of pubs and restaurants as well as many local sports clubs and societies. There is a direct railway links to Bridlington, Scarborough, Beverley, Hull, Doncaster and Sheffield with onward connections to wherever you choose to go.

We offer a competitive salary, generous CPD allowance, exclusive company discounts, reward schemes and career development.

As a Disability Confident Employer we are keen to hear from candidates with disabilities and long term health conditions, and would be happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments needed during the recruitment process.
