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: 

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.

This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to gain experience in leading and supporting a vet team and contribute to the management, organisation and financial performance of the practice by working with the Head of Practice.
