We are working with a mixed animal practice that is looking for a Farm Animal Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a permanent basis. This role can be either full or part-time and would suit a forward-thinking Vet that has a pro-active approach.

The Practice:

The agricultural vets look after farms ranging from the thousand cow dairy units to small hobby farms and this is their strength. They already have staff with expertise in dairy herd health, mastitis control, lameness investigations, fertility issues, and long term health planning.

They have vets with particular skills in sheep and beef medicine and others actively involved with support for smallholders. Their equine vets deal with everything from teeth rasping and vaccinations, to lameness investigations and minor surgery.

Modern farming requires a team approach to maximise farm profitability. Our client believes that the changes they are implementing will allow them to continue to be an important part of that team.

The Role and Candidate:

This is a permanent role that can be either full or part-time. Their rota encourages a healthy life-work balance with time off after nights and weekends on-call and the current rota is 2:8. They have the benefit of being based in the enviable geographical position of mid-Cornwall making easy access to great beaches, moors, woods, surfing, sailing, etc. 

The Remuneration Package:

In return, our client is offering a comprehensive package (pro-rata for part-time) that includes:

  • Competitive Salary (DOE)
  • Pension scheme
  • Private medical insurance
  • CPD funded and encouraged
  • 25 holidays days - increasing with length of service
  • And much, much more
