We are working with a client based in Prudhoe, Northumberland, who is hoping to recruit a full-time Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a permanent basis.

The Practice:

This is a well respected mixed animal practice who currently employ 2 Vets, 2 RVNs, 3 support staff and a Practice Manager. The practice is split as follows - 10% farm animals, 30% equine and 60% small animal. Their facilities and services include:

  • Full health checks
  • X-rays
  • Surgical and diagnostic procedures
  • Pet passports
  • Blood tests
  • Acupuncture
  • Microchipping
  • In-house laboratory

The Role:

This is a full-time role working a 4 day week with hours of 08.30-19.00 (or 17.00). Weekends are on a rota of 1 in 5 full weekends with 1 night on call per week. Typical duties include consultations and operations with some sole charge so you should be comfortable with this. In return, our client is offering a competitive salary and benefits package, dependent on experience, including a CPD allowance, RCVS fees paid, 6 weeks holiday per annum and certificates are supported.

The Candidate:

Ideally, you will have a least a year's post graduate experience, however, applications from newly-qualified Vets will be considered. Whilst our client is a mixed animal practice, they will consider a small animal Vet for this role and you should be confident in cat and dog castrations and spays. People skills and the ability to work well as part of a team is essential.
