We are working with an independent practice in Cornwall that requires a small animal Veterinary surgeon to join their expanding team on a full-time permanent basis.

The Practice:

This is an independent practice in Cornwall that is traditionally owned, rather than part of a group or corporate chain which is ran as very much part of the local community, retaining its friendly and caring approach whilst continuing to improve and develop the standards and services offered. They have a team of 7 RVNs as well as 3 SVNs working to support 9 Vets. The practice have a busy, varied caseload and can offer a high standard of care. They also boast modern in-house equipment including a laparoscopic kit as well as offering in-house orthopaedics and more complex surgery cases.

The Role:

This is a permanent full-time position with 1 in 9 weekends (Saturday morning consults then on call till Monday) and 1 in 9 nights per week on call.

Vets are not required to stay on site and will be notified via pager of an emergency. Nurse support is also available.

In return, the practice can offer a highly competitive salary from £34,750 (DOE), as well as CPD, membership fees, pension schemes, annual leave etc.

The Candidate: 

The ideal candidate will be friendly, outgoing, and enjoy being a proactive member of a supportive team whilst using their own initiative. All postgraduate experience levels can be considered as there is a highly experienced team of Vets available to offer support. Individual interests are also well supported and there is currently certificate holders in the team.
