An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our clients team in Northumberland. Your job will be split between the main hospital site and one branch surgery. 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.
