We are working with a small animal practice in Hartlepool, County Durham that has an exciting opportunity for a Veterinary Surgeon/Clinical Director to join them in a permanent full-time role.
They are a tier 2 RCVS accredited practice with 4 premises (Hartlepool, Billingham, Sedgefield & Horden) - the largest of which is the Hartlepool surgery which has recently been refurbished and enlarged. In 2000 they became a small animal practice - looking after mainly dogs and cats but increasing numbers of small pets- rabbits, guinea pigs, hampsters, gerbils, chinchilla, birds, tortoises and reptiles to name just a few. There are two designated operating theatres, a purpose built large prep/dental and non sterile operating theatre, separate dog and cat waiting rooms and wards.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a full-time experienced vet to join a friendly progressive team in a well established practice. The hours are based over 4 working days, 08.30 - 18.30. There are no out of hours but some weekend cover for any in patients, however, this is rare. The Saturdays are 1 in 3.
