Calling all night owls!

I am very excited to announce that following professional feedback and an evaluation of my clients needs they are looking to expand their Manchester out-of-hours team based at one of their 24-hour centres in this region. This role has been designed from the ground up to offer a flexible, well remunerated package ideal for a prospective night vet looking to make the most of a family friendly work-life balance.

They are looking to recruit a motivated, enthusiastic night vet to work an annualised 1:4 weekly rota (7 nights on with 21 nights off) with a package of up to £45,000 depending on experience. The practice is very well equipped with all usual mod cons (digital x-ray, ultrasound, flexible and rigid endoscopy, video otoscopy, full in-house labs, etc) as well as plans to site CT scanners at this location in the coming 12 months.

The practice is a 5-6 vet practice with plans to grow in the future and is supported by an experienced and capable team with numerous on-site certificate holders and links to neighbouring in-region referral units meaning that your cases will be well looked after following the end of your shifts. For support during your night shifts you will have the assistance of an experienced night RVN as well as a twilight PCA for the busier early parts of your shift.

This role is intended to be flexible enough to let you maintain a steady working pattern with the option to develop further. The client offer benefits (£1500 CPD allowance, RCVS and VDS) as well as support for certificate work if desired. There will also be the option to develop your surgical skills with support from neighbouring practices if desired and they are exploring the option to incorporate a surgical internship in the future with this role!

This role involves sole charge work working exclusively nights and will be suited for someone who ideally has at least 2 years of in-practice experience. Experience working OOH is also obviously desirable! Their day teams appreciate good communication and handover skills to ensure your patients are receiving the best quality care after you’ve left the building. It goes without saying that they are looking for caring, committed professionals who take pride in providing exceptional care to their clients – taking your pets to an emergency appointment is scary, and a calm, reassuring manner goes a long way!
