We are currently recruiting on behalf of an independent small animal practice based in Melton Mowbray, who is looking for a hard working, permanent Veterinary Surgeon to join their team on a full time basis.

The Practice:

Our client is a dedicated, small animal practice who pride themselves on providing excellent patient care and being able to understand the needs and concerns of each individual pet. They are equipped with the latest equipment and are able to provide a 24 hour emergency service, ensuring a continuity of care. They have separate dog and cat wards, a dental suite and a dedicated operating theatre. A modern diagnostic suite with digital radiography and ultrasound and a separate dental suite add to the facilities they provide. The practice employs 3 Vets, 4 RVNs and 3 Receptionists.

The Role:

This is a full-time position working 08.30-18.30 with a late clinic on Thursday until 19.00 which is alternated between 3 Vets. Weekends are on a rota of 1 in 4 on call - you then get the Friday afternoon off after a weekend on-call. Typical duties include operations and consultations. In return, our client is offering a generous salary and benefits package, depending on experience, including:-

The Candidate:

Ideally you will have at least 2-3 years' experience and will need to be well-organised, punctual, friendly and reliable.
