We are working with a friendly practice based in Stafford, Staffordshire, who is looking for a full-time Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a permanent basis.

The Practice:

This is an RCVS Tier 2, purpose built and spacious practice, located in central Stafford with excellent, direct transport links to Birmingham, London and Manchester and has Cannock Chase (an AONB) nearby.  The practice has extensive facilities including:

  • A high specification ultrasound
  • Digital X-ray
  • Latest IDEXX in-house laboratory
  • Dental machine
  • Dedicated theatre. 

They have a varied caseload with a near equal split of canine and feline cases. You will be joining a clinical team consisting of 2 existing veterinarians and 5 RVNs, each with at least 15 years of experience, along with an excellent support staff of 3 receptionists and a practice administrator.  They are a close-knit and stable team with a very happy working environment and they all pride themselves on the high level of service that they offer to both clients and their pets.

The Role:

Appreciating the importance of a good work/life balance, the role consists of a 40-hour working week with a half day off every Wednesday and includes a 1:3 Saturday rota 09.00-14.00 with no on-call or OOH. In return, our client is offering a competitive package including over 6 weeks holiday, paid VDS cover and fully funded and generous CPD allowance including RCVS membership.

The Candidate:

The ideal candidate will be confident in routine small animal medical and surgical cases and will enjoy building strong relationships with clients.  There will be some sole charge so you should also be comfortable with this.
