Permanent Full-Time Veterinary Surgeon - Cardiff

We are working with a lovely veterinary practice in Cardiff that is looking for an experienced small animal Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a full-time permanent basis. Our client has 5 sites across the Cardiff area which includes a hospital and they are looking for a vet to join their outstanding team of 17 vets.

The Practice:

Our client is looking for vets with a passion for outstanding first opinion care to join a team of 19 vets with wide clinical interests. They are a group that is constantly striving to provide the best possible care for their patients, their owners, and their teams.

They have 5 sites in and around the Cardiff area, with a brand new, multimillion-pound hospital at the centre of them all. 

All of their sites are fully equipped with a wide range of modern therapies and technologies including ultrasound, digital x-ray, digital dental x-ray, and access to shared radiosurgery units. This allows the branches to be fully self-sufficient to work up and treat their own cases with the 24/7 support of the hospital.

The hospital provides state of the art facilities such as CT, endoscopy, and endo-surgery (key-hole), orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery, exotics referrals, medical referrals, dedicated dog, cat, exotic and ICU wards, and a physiotherapy department including hydrotherapy. They are also on track to launch a radioactive iodine unit in Spring 2021- the first of its kind in Wales!

The Role and Candidate:

Ideally, our client is looking for a small animal Veterinary Surgeon with at least 2 years’ experience however, they are happy to review all candidates based on their individual skill level.

This role would be based at one of the branch sites, which all run independently and have great facilities to allow vets the freedom to work up their cases on-site, but with the back-up of a hospital team and 24/7 care at the Hospital when needed.

Their vets work a 4 day week (36hrs), to which there is currently no weekend or OOH work involved in the role, although they would be very open to discuss other rota options, including a mix of weekday and weekend day work if desired.

They employ a full team of emergency / out of hours vets and nurses to cover those demanding night and weekend shifts. But, if the excitement of emergency work is your passion they can work with you to ‘opt-in’ to cover some weekend day shifts as suits you!

The Package:

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

  • Competitive Salary - £35,000-£50,000 p/a (DOE)
  • Work place pension
  • Health benefit scheme
  • £1500 / 5 days CPD allowance. 
  • 5 weeks annual leave 
  • RCVS/VDS fees paid as well as a choice of two professional subscriptions. 
  • Staff Discount
  • Cycle to work scheme
