Night Vet required at Abington Park Vets, Northampton.

Job Description

We have an opportunity for an enthusiastic, self-driven and caring veterinary surgeon to join our well-established emergency night team offering gold standard in emergency and critical care.


Our emergency service covers our own three practices (including our referral service), as well as several nearby client practices.  Hours of work will be 8pm – 8am, 7 nights on, 14 off, averaging 26 hours per week.  The successful candidate will be working with a veterinary nurse and kennel assistant on site, and providing support to a veterinary nurse at our Moulton Practice Monday – Thursday nights.


Abington Park Veterinary Group is a busy referral and first opinion practice, and we are about to undertake an expansion at our Moulton site.  We currently employee 18 Veterinary Surgeons (including numerous certificate holders in various disciplines) and have a large nursing team - employing around 80 staff in total.


Our practices are equipped with a top of the line in house laboratory which allows gold standard emergency and critical care evaluations, including, but not limited to, blood gas, primary and secondary coagulation, d-dimers, osmolality, ketones, ammonia and bile acid. Video endoscopy, advanced doppler ultrasound and digital radiology are also available on site. A CT scanner will be permanently available once the extension is completed in 2018, and is currently available (together with MRI) on a mobile basis every 2 weeks.


The successful candidate will be MRCVS - confident to work in sole charge, able to perform emergency surgery and have excellent communication skills. We are also happy to support candidates working towards a postgraduate certificate.


We offer a competitive salary, CPD allowance, exclusive company discounts, reward schemes and career development. If this position is of interest to you then please get in touch. To apply or for more information, please contact Debbie on or call 07702333522.
