Job Role

Veterinary Surgeon

Job Type




An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Veterinary Surgeon to join the team in Northumberland from one of my clients. The 4-day week rota is fixed ensuring continuity to clients and staff. Most working days are between 8.30-6 pm. Occasional evening shifts will be rewarded with time off during the day. The out of hours work is all based at our main hospital. They are staffed 24/7 with nurses on site. OOH shifts included a weeknight every other week and weekend work on a rota shared between all staff. The weekends are shared between 3 on-call vets.

They have a lovely facility with huge waiting room, 6 consult rooms, laboratory, cat, dog, small mammal, and exotics wards. They have multiple large operating theatres with separate radiography, dental and ultrasound suites. They also have an onsite hydrotherapy unit. They are a supported by a large and dedicated staff of nurses, nursing assistants, reception and a hydrotherapist. They aim to provide a supportive and progressive working environment to allow the right candidate to excel.

The client has 25 vets, 22 vet nurses working to complete our varied caseload. They have certificate holders in exotics, surgery, medicine, cardiology and behaviour to support and encourage development in the team. The right candidate will benefit from using these supportive and knowledgeable staff to develop their skillset or to add additional breadth to their senior vet team. They have their own R&P social group who organise events for fun and charity throughout the year. Their team is very close and the working day is filled with plenty of laughs and pizza!

The client requires a small animal vet to join us. They are able to accommodate either a senior vet wishing to develop their skillset or a younger vet wishing to benefit from access to experienced, knowledgeable and supportive vets. You will need to enjoy working as part of a team and also be able to do some branch work as the sole vet (a receptionist and at least one nurse will always be present). The benefit of their large team is that they can tailor this role to suit the correct candidate; either consulting based, or surgical roles can be created.
