We are working with a lovely small group of practices in the Basildon area of Essex that is looking for a confident Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a full-time permanent basis.

The Practice:

Our client is a high-quality and caring veterinary practice striving to offer the best care for pets and companions. They are a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeon (RCVS) accredited practice meaning they meet the highest standards of customer service, hygiene, facilities, and equipment as well as encouraging staff training and development. This shows their dedication and commitment to offering pets the best veterinary care they deserve. Their practices include a busy 24-hour hospital which has recently been refurbished with modern surgical and diagnostic equipment plus two fully equipped branch surgeries in the area.  They pride themselves on high standards of patient and client care and have access to a top European Orthopaedic and Cardiology specialist who visits and works from this location.  

The Role and Candidate: 

You will be joining a team that currently has 8 full-time vets and 2 part-time vets, who are supported by a team of around 20 nurses and around the same reception plus office staff, so they are a big practice. 

The hours are varied depending on the shifts and whether you are working at branches or not. The role is full-time and you will be working 4 days a week plus weekends.

Weekends are currently roughly 1 in 8 full duty weekend and roughly 1 in 3 clinics till 1 pm, they do their own OOH and this would be something they would be looking for in a vet that will be joining them. The OOHs rota is currently in 1 night a week where the vet is on call from 8 pm, but they are consulting through the day from 12 pm.

The Package:

In return, our client is offering a very competitive salary and excellent benefits that will be discussed in the interview.
