We are working on behalf of a long-established, independent veterinary group, providing veterinary care throughout Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. Our client is looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to join their young and dynamic small animal team on a full-time permanent basis. Applicants from all levels of experience welcome.

The Practice:

This modern practice has been established in the local area for more than 70 years and has a number of local branch surgeries and operating theatres nearby. Recently extended, their facilities include:

  • New prep and recovery area
  • Dental theatre
  • Diagnostic imaging suite
  • Glass-walled theatre
  • X-ray
  • Ultrasonography
  • ECG
  • Endoscopy
  • Laparoscopy
  • Bronchoscopy

They are a modern and well equipped independent veterinary group that encourages professional development to a certificate, director and shareholder level for the right candidate.

The Role:

This is a permanent full-time role, where you will be working 4 days a week (Mondays off) with 1.5 weekends in 10 and 1 in 10 out of hours. The role is split between the main hospital in and a local branch, there may be times that you also need to work out of the other two branches.

They operate on a 10-minute appointment but this is flexible depending on the client's needs and requirements of the patient i.e. longer appointments for primary vaccinations etc.

The Candidate:

This role is to open to applications from all levels of experience from new graduates upwards, what is important is the enthusiasm and dedication of the candidate. The 1:10 rota comes with support for interns (especially at weekends - when they take the pager) which also allows for plenty of time away from work.
