We are working with a well-established and friendly veterinary hospital practice in St Helens Merseyside that is looking to recruit an experienced Night Veterinary Surgeon on a full-time permanent basis. You will be working on a 7 on / 7 off rota 20:30-08:30.

The Practice:

Our client is based in St.Helens, Merseyside and they have been serving the community’s pets for over 50years. They are a Veterinary Hospital offering care to patients not only locally as their Referral Service treats patients nationally. They are happy to help clients locally with any queries, advice, or support on veterinary services that may be required. They have fully qualified veterinary and nursing staff that offers the highest level of medical and surgical skills from a Veterinary Hospital and Referral Centre in St.Helens.

They also have local branch surgeries for clients' convenience and late-night/weekend opening times to help accommodate their busy lives. Their appointments are for 15 minutes as standard (50% more than other vets), as they believe this provides better quality of care & understanding

The Candidate:

You will be an experienced and confident Veterinary Surgeon that is comfortable with sole charge and all aspects of Emergency Care. As the role will involve both consults and operations a vet with all-round experience would be ideal.
