Job Description

We are a growing small animal practice based in Coalville that offers its team members:

Active involvement in the direction and development of the practice

Autonomy to make day-to-day decisions to improve systems, processes and client engagement.

Continuity of patient and client care

An alternative to the corporate ‘recipe’

Cockburn Vets may be a small, family-run, independent practice, but our hearts are large. We believe that pet care is more than just about caring. Truly caring for pets is more than just making sure they are fit and health. Caring is about being connected and strengthening the bond between the patient, their owner and you…… their vet. We believe it’s that bond that led our owners to vote us The Best UK Vet 2021.

The Position: We’re looking for an experienced (2 years +) Veterinary Surgeon with solid surgical skills.

The salary we’re offering is £35,000 - £50,000 dependent on experience and specialisms. (We would be very interested in ultrasonography skills.)

 We offer £1,000 CPD allowance, though additional funds are available for those wishing to undertake a certificate.
