Job Role

Veterinary Surgeon

Job Type




My client has an exciting opportunity due to expansion, for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon to join their team. There is a large and varied case load of both medical and surgical cases, and you would have clinical freedom. Duties are split between consulting, operating, work ups, hospital/inpatient care and out of hours duties. Sole charge will be required during out of hours and occasionally during branch shifts. There is a high orthopaedic caseload through the practice, and there would be room for another surgeon to develop their skills in this area. Equally an interest in imaging would be encouraged. Postgraduate studies in all areas are encouraged and supported. Details of hours and rota below.

• 42 hrs a week
• 1 weekend day in 4
• Share of OOH rota (equates to 7 nights over 12 weeks)
• Salary £30,000-£65,000 DOE

The practice has a spacious, well equipped hospital and three satellite branches. They have vets who have completed or are studying towards further qualifications in soft tissue surgery, internal medicine, dermatology, ECC, and ophthalmology. Cases are discussed daily at clinical rounds and support is always available. The hospital has recently been extended and is well equipped with top class imaging (digital x-ray, CT scanner, ultrasound, video endoscope including laparoscopic kit), a wide range of surgical and orthopaedic equipment including Ex-fix and TTA kits, four sterile theatres, dental x-ray, ECG, tonopen and slit lamp, Class 4 laser, extensive lab, spacious dog and cat kennels and a large isolation area. Each branch has biochem, haematology, UA and microscope, a sterile theatre, with imaging available at some. The vets are well supported by an experienced and conscientious team of RVN and SVNs, and excellent support staff.

They are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated vet with some experience. You will be skilled at communicating with clients and colleagues and share their passion for excellent client and patient care. You will be able to work within the busy team to provide the top-quality veterinary care that they are proud of. Confidence with sole charge OOH shifts is expected. An interest in orthopaedics would also be an advantage but is not essential.
