An exciting opportunity has arisen at our clients' Derby practice for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon, to join them on a full-time permanent basis. The ideal candidate would be confident and competent in all soft tissue surgeries and basic orthopedics.
The practice has recently changed over to 10min bookable consults, so it is no longer a walk-in clinic, which has received positive feedback from their lovely customers. It is spacious and well equipped, including digital x-ray, consult rooms, separate kennels, cattery, prep and theatre. The practice has excellent transport links, including the M1 and a direct train to London nearby.
Their team consists of 3 Vets, 1 Head RVN and 2 x SVNs, 2 Animal Nursing Assistants and 4 Receptionists. There is also a dedicated Head of Practice. Morale is high in the team, with everyone wanting to do their best. All staff members are encouraged to contribute towards decision-making and are encouraged to have their own lead areas to grow.
They currently host puppy training classes, which are a huge success, and are in the process of becoming a cat-friendly practice too.
The Role and Candidate:
The position is 40 hours per week, over 4 or 5 days. 1 in 3 weekends (Saturdays only) for which time in lieu will be given, late evenings and bank holidays on a rota basis, but no OOH.
