We are working with a well respected and highly recommended practice in Driffield, East Yorkshire, who are hoping to recruit a permanent Veterinary Surgeon to join their growing team. This role would suit a recently qualified practitioner with a broad range of interests, that is looking to continue their veterinary journey and hopefully set down roots. You'll have full clinical freedom and support to continue to build on a well-established practice base and to be part of a close clinical team.

 The Practice:

Our clients' practice was established in 2013 but in a relatively short time has become a very well respected and most recommended practice in the town largely due to our people-orientated approach. They are proud to show new clients around and everybody is impressed by the standards of the premises and the cleanliness and space. Their facilities include:

  • Two consulting rooms with height-adjustable tables (with a third planned)
  • Two waiting areas
  • Separate dog and cat inpatient wards
  • Isolation ward
  • Imaging room with digital X-ray and ultrasound scanner
  • In-house IDEXX haematology and biochemistry analysers
  • Dedicated operating theatre
  • Large preparation area
  • Dental station with nitrogen powered air tools and ultrasonic scaler

As a VN training practice, they are proud of their first trainee who qualified in 2017, with a second due to qualify this year and a third looking to start training in Autumn. Together they form the backbone of a well-run and organised practice.

The Role and Candidate:

This is a full-time permanent role, with the exact rotas and shifts to be discussed at the interview. It will include an equal share of a fair OOH’s rota.

You will be involved with all aspects of the practice from first consultations through clinical workups and surgical cases. This could suit someone looking to study for a certificate in the future with time available within the rota to complete this. You will be a self-motivated small animal vet looking to embrace general practice with the huge variety of cases, people and animals it presents, as well as enjoying great work/life balance as part of a dedicated vet team.

As a confident communicator, you look forward to meeting and talking with clients on a daily basis, as well as greeting and caring for their companions. You also have a passion for striving to provide the best care possible for your patients and working as a part of a small dedicated team to this end.
