  • Client:


We are working with an expanding Farm Animal Veterinary Practice in the Abergavenny area of Monmouthshire that is looking for an experienced colleague to join them on a full-time permanent basis. You will be joining a stable, established team in a friendly and supportive environment.

The Practice:

Our client currently has eight experienced Veterinary Surgeons that are involved in supplying comprehensive veterinary services to farmers in South East Wales and English Borders. They are committed to providing the highest veterinary health care to their clients 24 hours a day 365 days a year.

They cover all veterinary requirements for beef and dairy herds and sheep flocks, including

  • Reproduction - Fertility, and Scanning
  • Health Plans
  • Flock Health Plans
  • Nutrition
  • Disease Investigation
  • And much more

The Role:

This is a full-time permanent role, working 5 days a week, usual 09:00-17:30 (although this may vary), there will also be 1 in 5 weeknight on-call and 1 in 4 full weekends (possibly moving to 1 in 5 in the future).

You will be joining a friendly practice with a team of 5 Clinicians, 3 TB Testers and 4 Receptionists.

The Candidate:
