We are working a group of practices that are based across the Stevenage area of Hertfordshire that is looking for enthusiastic and professional Veterinary Surgeon to join their growing team. The roles are full-time and would require the vet to float between 5 of their branches so you must be able to drive.

The Practice:

Our client aims to provide high-quality, friendly, caring service to clients and their pets. They understand that pets are part of the family and therefore deserve the best treatment possible. Their team of experienced and very capable Veterinary Surgeons and Veterinary Nurses aim to provide the highest quality of care for pets.

They have a 24hour emergency on-call care centre that is staffed by on-site nurse monitoring, to maintain all pet's care and needs. Their Veterinary Surgeons are on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week so that in the unfortunate case of an emergency, pets would be seen by one of the Vets at one of the surgeries.

These thriving practices are bright, spacious, air-conditioned and purpose-built to industry-leading standards with state of the art equipment including digital X-ray, ultrasound and in-house laboratory facilities. The practices are based in rural Hertfordshire and Essex which all offer onsite parking.

Pets are more than just animals to them – they are their patients. Whether a guinea pig, a dog or a cat, their dedication and skill will provide the best treatment using cutting-edge methods. But not forgetting the patience and love of animals so that pets recover quickly.

The Role and Candidate:

Candidates will need to have good general surgical and medical skills and enjoy building relationships with new patients, clients, and the wider team. They are also interested in vets with particular skills in ultrasound and/or soft tissue or orthopaedic surgery.

The roles are full-time working 4 days a week Monday-Friday with a weekend rota of 1 in 2 with shifts of 09:00-13:-00. There will be occasional sole charge with responsibilities, so you must be comfortable with this. They have our own OOH practice which the vets work a 1:8 ratio weeknights and a 1:8 weekend rota.

The Remuneration Package:

In return, they offer a supportive and friendly working environment together with career development opportunities, an excellent package and great benefits that include; competitive salary, CPD allowance and exclusive company discounts and rewards - including employee discount.
