We are working with an independent Emergency Care Service who are seeking a dynamic, ambitious ECC Night Veterinary Surgeon to join their experienced team. This practice is based in Storrington, West Sussex and the role would suit a vet with experience in emergency care.

The Practice:

This practice is an independent, stand-alone service based within the newly refurbished flagship hospital of family-owned Veterinary Group. This expanding practice provides routine day vet care as well as complex treatments by Advanced Practitioners and visiting Specialists in state of the art facilities. By night they have recently established a brand new service dedicated to emergency and critical care, which covers all of the group practices. This ensures that they are able to provide continuous high-dependency care for the sickest patients in one place.

The Role:

This is a full-time permanent position working 13-hour night shifts with scheduled breaks. Over a period of 28 days, you will be working 12 shifts but the number of shifts can be negotiated subject to a candidate's requirements.

In return, our client is offering a salary of between £35,000 - £55,000 p/a subject to experience and certificate/advanced practitioner status. Salary is reviewed annually and the benefits on offer are:

An equivalent of 28 days holiday inclusive of bank holidays

£1,500 per year CPD budget to enable you to fulfil relevant training

Certificates are supported

RCVS, VDS and BVA subscriptions

The Candidate

This practice is looking for an ambitious and motivated ECC Veterinary Surgeon. Experience in emergency care is preferred but our client would consider a new graduate who wants to develop their career in emergency care.
