We are working with a lovely small animal practice in Grimsby, North Lincolnshire that is looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a full-time permanent basis. Our client is open to receiving applications for Vets of all levels of experience including new graduates.

The Practice

This practice is in Grimsby on the North Lincolnshire coast and they also run two branch practices for consultations only. Grimsby has a traditional reputation as a fishing port, but few boats are now left and Grimsby has diversified into a pleasant town with all the usual amenities.

This vet practice is small animal only, and they like to think that the practice has a happy and relaxed working atmosphere. They consider everyone to be part of the team and to be integral to reputation and success. The majority of their clients have been with them for many years and consider the family atmosphere and personal, friendly consulting style to be one which inspires their trust in the treatment of their pets. They don’t have any targets for vaccination, worming, flea treatment, and dentals, they just provide high-quality and professional veterinary information and let the client take it up or not. They think that’s the least stressful way to go about these things, for both the clients and the practice.

The Role:

This is a full-time permanent position, working 5 days a week 09:00-18:00. There are 1 in 6 weeknights and 1 in 3 full weekends on a rota basis. You will be working in a team of 5 Vets and 20 RVNS in a well-equipped practice. Your duties will include operations and consults with some sole charge required.

You may be needed to work in one of the other branches from time to time, these branches are consulting only.

In return, our client is offering an excellent package that includes:

  • Competitive Salary - Circa £32,000 p/a (DOE)
  • Fully funded CPD
  • 30 days holiday
  • Time in lieu for weekends worked
  • Pension
  • RCVS and VDS fees paid
  • Accommodation (if required)

The Candidate:

Our client is looking for an ambitious vet that has good routine ops and basic medical skills. It is important that you are outgoing and a good team player that will fit in with this friendly team. You will have good communication skills with both clients and colleagues alike.

Our clients' main focus of the practice is Client Happiness so they are looking for a vet with this principle as part of everything they do.
