We are working with a Veterinary Practice based in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, who is looking for a permanent small animal Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a full-time basis.

The Practice:

Our client is a 13 site first opinion practice with the central hub at our busy Tier 3 Hospital in Dewsbury. Their ethos is clinical excellence and they live by their Core Values. Client and patient care are at the heart of what they do.

All of the operating branches are fully equipped with theatre, lab, XR/ultrasound, dental X-ray. They run their own 24/7 OOH service with dedicated night vets and RVNs. Consults are 15 minutes minimum and they never consult for longer than 2-2.5 hrs without a break.

They encourage vets to undertake certificates and within the practice they have 6 cert holders and another 6 working towards one, covering surgery, medicine, imaging, cardiology and derm. 

The Role:

The Roving Vet is the best of both worlds - all the benefits of an employee (package, career progression, and personal development) along with a salary supplement, minimal weekends and extra holiday in exchange for your flexibility.
