We are working with a client with a practice based in Banbury, Oxfordshire that is looking to recruit a small animal Veterinary Surgeon on a full or part-time permanent basis.

The Practice:

This is a busy growing practice. The spacious, three consulting room surgery is equipped to a high standard with a full in-house laboratory, digital CR radiography, ultra-sound, well equipped surgical theatre with diathermy, capnography, multi-parameter monitor and piped anaesthetic gases in all areas of the surgery. With a very varied caseload in lots of species from dogs and cats to reptiles and raptors, from routine health consults and complex medical cases to orthopaedic surgery. Over 30% of the active client base are insured and a majority are on a health plan.. The team currently consists of 4 vets, 4 RVNs, 3 student nurses, 1 veterinary care assistant, 3 client care advisors and a practice manager. 

The Role:

This is a permanent position for a Veterinary Surgeon. This position is full or part-time with a minimum of 25 hours per week, including a 1 in 3 weekend rota (Saturdays 9:00-15:00 and Sundays 10:00-16:00) and there will be no OOH allowing for an excellent work/life balance.

They are looking for a confident and personable vet with at least 2 years of clinical experience in small animal practice, and who is comfortable in sole charge on a weekend rota basis, with additional clinical support as necessary. 

The Candidate:

Our client is looking for a confident vet who is comfortable in a fast-paced environment. Excellent client care and pet welfare standards are their main priority, so you’ll need to share their passion for delivering this level of service. Along with the support of the rest of the team, you will be able to utilise and develop your skills and expertise to provide a high standard of care to meet your clients’ expectations.

In return, our clients can offer a very supportive and friendly working environment together with career development opportunities and an excellent colleague benefits package. The salary package is negotiable commensurate with experience and CPD (including possible certificate) is funded and actively encouraged.
