No out of hours involved in this position or branch work. In return, the practice is offering a competitive salary, depending on experience.

The Candidate:

The practice is looking for an experienced vet but will consider all levels of experience. A vet who is confident to undertake consultations and perform routine surgeries. This is a busy practice with a varied caseload, so the vet must be ambitious and proactive, who is ready to hit the ground running and thrive in a fantastic veterinary team.
