Experienced Veterinary Surgeon - Suffolk - Ref RL12578

Job Role

Veterinary Surgeon

Job Type




Our clients are looking for 2 Veterinary Surgeons to join their expanding team in Suffolk. This position would be 40 hours a week over 4 days, although part time applicants would be considered. Contribution to the weekend consulting rota would be expected which will be 1:6 weekends with a day off the following week in lieu. No nights or on call. The role would consist of a split between branch consulting and working as part of a larger team in the main practice allowing time for development of skills eg imaging and/or surgery if desired and inpatient care. An exclusively consulting only role could easily be accommodated. Salary from £35,000 to £60,000 depending on experience. Certificates are encouraged and fully supported. An interest in dentistry or cardiology would be a bonus but not mandatory. The role would consist of 2 days working at their main branch where you would work a mixture of consulting, operating and inpatient care. Each role is roata'd for the day so you are not trying to operate/work up cases in between consults. The other 2 days would consist of consulting +/- routine surgery at 1-2 of their branch practices. A consulting only position could be arranged if you prefer not to operate. Support can also be provided in building confidence in imaging, surgery or dentistry and they always have experienced vets available to discuss challenging cases. Pet dogs can come to work with you. This site typically runs with 3-4 vets per day performing a mixture of consulting and operating. The 5 branch surgeries have all been recently renovated and offer daily consultations with 1-2 routine ops mornings at the larger branches. Branch work is normally sole charge with the ability to refer cases for further treatment/investigation. The practice is well equipped with high quality ultrasound including cardiac probe and ECG, digital radiography, CT scanner, electrocautery and therapeutic K-laser. They have multi-parameter monitoring for anaesthetics and have a good range of surgical equipment including for all general orthopaedics. Dental radiography is due to be installed this year. Admin time is factored into the day and they run on 15-minute appointments with the ability to extend this for complex cases/euthanasia's. There is always support available from senior colleagues and expanding their veterinary team will allow for vets to pursue their own particular areas of interest. They are looking for passionate vets with some experience and the ability to consult sole charge. They need vets who are able to work well in a large team and have excellent communication skills. They encourage vets to retain their own cases to improve client communication and improve job satisfaction. They are looking for vets who want to share their experiences with them and look to grow with the practice. You will require a car for this position due to travelling between branches.
