An exciting opportunity for OOH Vets to join a new, dedicated team.

Job Description

OOH Vet – Nightingale Emergency Vets, Chippenham


We have a rare and exciting opportunity for OOH Vets to join a brand-new, dedicated night team based within the Hale Veterinary Hospital in Chippenham, in partnership with Garden Veterinary Group.

About the Role

Under the welcoming, friendly supervision of a Lead Vet, we are seeking a small team of talented OOH Vets who want to embrace a fresh, new position. We are aiming for there to be a specialist team of around 4 Vets & 4 RVNs.

The role will allow you to work a varied OOH caseload, where continuity of high clinical standards is imperative. This is a truly rewarding role where clinical work ups are encouraged. The aim for Nightingale is to provide a real continuity of care for their loyal clientele & further pets from the local area. 

The rota is dependent on the Vets who join the team! We are willing to be open to flexible working opportunities for the right candidates and hear what rota would suit you.

There will be some Sunday days/Bank Hols working on a projected (and fair) rota basis. There is also accommodation available for during your working nights.

The Practice & Area

Based out of Hale Veterinary Hospital in beautiful Chippenham, you will be able to access all of their state-of-the-art facilities. They are RCVS accredited & have ISFM Silver status.

The practice is very close to an M4 junction, as well as being 5 minutes away from the train station, making it an easily accessible hospital (for clients and team members).  

 The local area has a lot to offer – it is close to the Coast, the Cotswolds, as well as big cities such as Cardiff, Bristol & Bath. We are also only an hour from London by train. From sea to city life to countryside, we have it all!

So, what can Nightingale Vets offer me?

  • Opening January 2023
  • Salary around £30 - £32p/h (dependent on experience, open to discussion)
  • Dedicated OOH team
  • Flexible rota
  • 6 weeks holiday inclusive of Bank Hols (pro rata)
