Veterinary Surgeon - Aberdeenshire - Ref BF13399

Job Role

Veterinary Surgeon

Job Type




My clients are looking for an additional mixed vet to work between their three practices in Aberdeenshire. Their caseload consists of 40% small animal, 40% farm (beef and sheep) and 20% first opinion equine. TB testing is minimal while their local, family run farms are progressive, well equipped and engaged with them. Their small animal clients enjoy a high standard of care, each vet sharing equally the surgery, medical work ups and consults (15mins). You’ll get the freedom to focus on your niche and CPD/certification is fully supported.

Full time is a 4 day working week (40hours).
They are genuinely open to part time or job share applications.
OOH is shared equally between all vets.
1:6 weekends first on call and 1:6 weekends second on call equates to 1:3 weekends working but never with two first on nights in a row. Also meaning dedicated back up is rota'd.

Salary will be from £30,000 negotiable depending on experience

You will join a close knit team of 7 vets (2 Clinical Directors who very much enjoy being vets!), 3 excellent and highly motivated nurses with a lovely team of support staff.

The main purpose built surgery and has a large garden with ample parking. They have all the usual kit - digital X-ray, ultrasound with cardiac probe, video endoscope, in-house bloods, EEJ and EasiScan.

They're an accredited nurse training practice and have one vet studying for an Ophthalmology certificate.

You must be a qualified RCVS registered veterinary surgeon. New or recent graduates welcome to apply as support will be provided. Full UK drivers license essential.
