We are looking for a full or part time veterinary surgeon. We can accoommdate a more experienced vet who may have child care commitments by having flexible hours - but we would welcome a full time (3 long days, 1 short day a week) vet. Participation in a 1 in 4 weekend rota will be needed but you will only need to work on a Saturday if it's your full weekend on call - 3 out of 4 weekends totally free. There is a bonus paid for out of hours work. You will have a nurse working wih you over the weekend and the out of hours is rarely busy.  


We are a single centre practice - no branch surgeries was a major factor when I last applied for a job. And all our consulting rooms have windows - and that does make a difference to your working environment!


We are all still enthusiastic about our choice of profession. We a have a repution with our clients of 'getting to the bottom of things' and 'sorting them out' so it's not all routine vaccines and neutering. We have the facilities to persue a diagnosis and a clientele who appreciate it.


We are in the Practice Standards Scheme and and ISFM Silver Cat Friendly Practice. We employ experienced qualified Veterinary Nurses (and an excellent trainee) and have low rates of staff turnover.


Enthusiasm for your chosen vocation is the most important attribute; we can supply support from experienced colleagues including certificate holders in Medicine, Dermatology & Surgery. And if you want to persue a certificate yourself this would be encouraged.

This is a great area to live in and the clients are lovely!
