Job Description

Bilton Veterinary Centre is looking for an enthusiastic and experienced veterinary surgeon to replace one of our vets who is leaving us to further her career with a residency in a referral centre.

She has told us that:

“ I am incredibly sad to leave as it is a wonderful practice with a great team of vets, nurses and receptionists. Bilton is one of the best environments I have worked in during my 10-year career”

We are a six vet, single-site SA practice which offers ample opportunities for case discussions within our experienced vet team, whilst maintaining individual case continuity.

Our current vets have particular interests in Orthopaedics, Soft-Tissue Surgery, Ophthalmology, Ultrasound, Cardiology and Acupuncture.

Our equipment includes

  •     Digital AGFA Radiography
  •     New IMS Digital Dental Radiography
  •     ESOATE MyLab Ultrasound with Cardiac probes and full-colour Doppler
  •     Tonopen Ocular Tonometry
  •     IDEXX Catalyst Biochemistry and Procyte Haematology (coming soon)
  •     ECG machine
  •     Four Humphrey ADE Anaesthetic Circuits
  •     Gima Electrosurgical Unit

The shared on-call rota is limited to 7pm-10pm on weeknights only, after which new emergencies are referred to a local OOH provider.  However, most in-patients are hospitalised on-site to avoid unnecessary transportation.

We offer a competitive salary commensurate with experience (above the SPVS average), along with a generous CPD budget. Funding is available for certificates.

Work-life balance is important for all of us and this is reflected in our rota allowing two short days per week. We maintain a friendly work atmosphere with an active social life too.

Rugby is ideally placed in the Midlands, with easy access to the motorway networks and London is now only 50 minutes away by train.  There is ample countryside right on our doorstep too!
