We are working with a well-established small animal practice in the Hinckley area of Leicestershire that is looking for a motivated and experienced Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a full-time permanent basis. The ideal vet will have a minimum of 2-years post-graduate experience that has a keen interest in surgery.

The Practice: 

Our clients' mission is to deliver progressive, around the clock care that means their employees have the very best equipment and treatment options available, including in-house MRI machines and state-of-the-art operating theatres. They provide ongoing support to their teams, both in practice and through their dedicated training centre. This empowers you to get the very best from the advanced equipment while being on your journey to veterinary excellence.

The Role and Candidate:

This is an exciting opportunity that would suit a motivated and experienced Vet; you will be joining in a friendly team made up of one other Vet, three Nurses, and a Receptionist. The position is full-time, where you will be working 39 hours per week over 4 days, with 1 in 3 half weekends - giving you a great work/life balance.

Whilst not essential, our client would be particularly interested to hear from applicants with an interest in surgery and would encourage their new colleague to work towards a certificate in this area should they wish to.

Their caseload is mainly dogs and cats, with smaller but not insignificant numbers of small pets (particularly rabbits).

In return, our client is offering an excellent package that includes:

  • Salary up to £55,000 dependent on experience
  • Accommodation allowance £6,600
  • Vehicle or vehicle allowance £2,500
  • CPD allowance £1,500 plus 3 days CPD leave
  • VDS, RCVS and BVA fees paid
