  • Client:


We are working with a well-established 3 vet, RCVS accredited small animal practice in Weston-super-Mare. They are looking for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a full-time permanent basis.

The Practice:

This is a very well-established 3 vet, RCVS accredited small animal practice in Weston-super-Mare that takes great pleasure in offering the best care to clients and their pets. They are a well-equipped practice with digital x-ray, ultrasound, ECG in converted corner property.

They have excellent support staff and nurses including 3 RVN’s, 1 student VN and 1 very experienced ANA. They aim to give the best service they can to their clients at a reasonable cost and the practice has a real family feel. Locums often say how nice their clients are.

They are based in a lovely part of the British countryside where as well as the extensive beach there is beautiful countryside nearby.

The Candidate and Role:

This is a permanent full-time role where you will be working a 4 day week with 1:3 Saturday mornings. There are no OOH or on-call, so you will have the opportunity of a good work/life balance.

In this role, the following through of cases is encouraged - as is CPD. You will have the chance to explore a particular veterinary interest if you have one.

The standard weekday includes consults for one vet for the first half of morning before joining other vets who have been doing surgery. There are afternoon and evening consultations (14:00-15:00 and 16:30-18:30). The Saturday mornings are 08.30 to 13:00, and there is two support staff.

In return, our client is offering a competitive salary and comprehensive benefits package

The Candidate:

Ideally, you will be a vet (MRCVS) with experience. Saturday mornings are sole charge and there will be occasions in the week when you are the only vet, but generally, there will be at least two vets each day, giving the opportunity to discuss cases and share expertise. Although they like each vet to follow through their cases, this chance to share can be invaluable. The most important feature that they would look for in a person, is that they care.
