Shipley and Idle Vets are looking for a Consults Only Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a permanent basis. We’re keen to support different rotas, shifts and hours to offer you the work life balance that you need. We want to make sure that you have time to follow up on cases and spend more time with your patients, so we run 15-minute consultations with protected admin time and breaks. Even though this is a consult only role, we can offer you a caseload tailored to your own clinical interest. 

Rota patterns that work for you

We’re offering true flexibility with this role; we can support consults only, part time hours whatever you’re looking for, there’s a role for you at Shipley. A typical full-time role would involve covering 40 hours per week over 4 weekdays (08:30 – 19:00), along with 1 in 3 Saturday mornings covering consults only (09:00 – 13:00).

A team dedicated to continuous professional development 

We offer a friendly and welcoming team environment, where we fully support each other and enjoy our working days together. Our fantastic team is made up of Vet Surgeons, RVNs, SVNs, VCAs and Receptionists. Our vets frequently talk about the incredible support they receive from the nurse and reception teams. We truly think our team is our greatest asset. We always have a dedicated mental health first aider on shift. We’re keen to support our staff with their development, full certificate support is something that we can offer. 

Our practice

At the practice we see a mixture of routine and preventative work, as well as interesting medical and surgical cases. We provide first opinion care to small animals and work up our cases to the highest standard. We are very proud to also work with a local hedgehog charity. The practice itself is an extremely well-equipped site. You’ll have access to a brand new state of the art ultrasound machine suitable for both abdominal and cardiac studies, Digital X-ray, Endoscopy both flexible and rigid, Laparoscopy and much more! We can even offer accommodation until you find your feet in the local area, this a small self-contained flat above the practice.

We are only 15 minutes by train to central Leeds, yet woodland walks and the Yorkshire Dales are on our doorstep. Work/life balance highly rated! Our main practice is situated less than a mile from the picturesque World Heritage site of Saltaire which has many lovely shops, restaurants/ cafes and large parks as well as the stunning Salt Mills, a former textile mill that now houses an amazing gallery. There are also good rail and bus links to the cities.  

Here's what the team have to say about life at Shipley

“I started at Shipley Vets not long after qualifying as an RVN. I was welcomed into the team and over the years (nearly 20!) I have progressed in my career. I am very proud of the high standards of care we offer and how we all work together to ensure we are doing the very best for our patients. The practice has also adapted to ensure that work/life balance is achieved and this has been so important to me, having a young family. I am looking forward to many more happy years with great colleagues.” Lisa Powell – Practice Manager
