  • Client:


We are working with a two-site mixed animal veterinary practice based near Driffield in North Yorkshire that is looking for an experienced small animal Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a full-time permanent basis. Our client provides veterinary services for small animals, equine, livestock, and more in a friendly dedicated environment.

The Practice:

Our client is a friendly independent practice dedicated to providing an excellent standard of care to all of their clients. The practice has evolved from the first two Veterinary Practices established in Driffield, both with roots going back to the 1940s. Since then they have grown into a nine vet, two centre practice, offering a comprehensive 24-hour call-out service to pets, farm animals, and horses. Inpatient facilities are available at the Driffield Practice as required. Our client has two practices based approximately 13 miles apart.

Their vets are supported by a dedicated and caring team of veterinary nurses, administration, and reception staff.

The Role:

Our client is looking for a small animal veterinary surgeon to work 4 days a week (the full day off being after a night on call). There is a requirement of one-night in five on-call and a half weekend and full weekend in 5 you will get a Friday off after weekend on-call. The shifts are typically 8.45-5.30 apart from the night on-call when you will be consulting until 7 pm.

You will be an experienced Veterinary Surgeon that is confident in all areas of a small animal role. You will have excellent communication skills and work well as part of a lovely team.

The Package

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

  • Competitive Salary (DOE)
  • 23 days holiday a year plus bank holidays.
  • RCVS, BVA, and VDS fees covered.
  • Private health insurance.
