We are currently working with an established, independent, progressive practice based in a scenic and picturesque location in Lincolnshire that is currently looking to recruit a small animal Veterinary Surgeon to join their team.

The practice was completely refurbished in 2004 to include a purpose built two storey extension which accommodates two new operating theatres, separate dog and cat wards, larger isolation facilities and a new laboratory. They also have all the ‘kit’ to aid with diagnosis and treatment e.g. X-ray, ultrasound, endoscopy.

The work load at the practice is steady and the OOHs are generally quiet. 

The Candidate:

It would suit a forward thinking, flexible, adaptable practical vet who is open to new ideas and who can ‘hit the ground running’. A dedicated, hard-working individual with a happy personality and good sense of humour with realistic expectations and interested in their ongoing development and possibly taking a certificate in a specialised area of veterinary medicine. The ideal candidate can expect to be suitable rewarded for their endeavours.
