We are currently recruiting on behalf of a fantastic independent mixed practice in Aberlour, who are looking for a vet to join their dedicated team. They can accommodate either a small animal vet or a mixed vet on a full or part time basis.

The Practice:

The practice runs across two sites, with both surgeries providing a comprehensive service with an extensive range of modern facilities and equipment. They treat small animal, equine and farm patients with 8 vets supported by excellent nurses and reception staff.

The Role:

The practice is quite flexible in what they are looking for. They can accommodate either a mixed or small animal vet, to work full or part-time. A small animal vet will be required to undertake both consultations and operations on weekdays between 8:45 am and 5:30 pm, with 1:4 weekends involving Saturday morning surgery and the remainder of the weekend on call, and 1:4 nights on call during the week. Vets are encouraged to carry their own cases through where possible.

Mixed vets are required to mainly undertake farm visits, although some on site facilities are available for treatments. There is one night per four on call for a mixed vet, and again 1:4 weekends.

There are always 2 vets on call and the work will be tailored to who is suited best, the pairings ensure all-round knowledge and skill set is covered.

The Candidate:

The practice is willing to consider applicants of all experience levels, but the vet must be ambitious and driven to provide the highest quality of care and service.
