Permanent Veterinary Surgeon - Hillingdon, West London

We are working with a well-established small animal hospital in the Hillingdon area of West London that is looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a full-time permanent basis. Our client is looking for a vet that will hit the ground running, although there will be help available if required.

The Practice:

At this practice, they provide 24-hour emergency care for all their clients, with a duty veterinary surgeon that sees all out of hours calls at their fully equipped hospital. They hope that seeing one of the regular vets and if necessary, nurses in the familiar surroundings of the hospital, is a comfort to their clients at a potentially emotional time.

They are a first opinion practice which means there may be occasions where patients' best care is conducted by a specialist. Under these circumstances, they can arrange a referral to a specialist practice

Arrangements can be made for home visits should if there is a difficulty in bringing the pet to the hospital.

In this practice, they have a full range of Surgical and Medical facilities available on-site (with renovations planned in the near future) including:

  • General Surgery
  • Hospitalisation
  • Inhouse Laboratory
  • Inhouse X-Ray facilities
  • Inhouse Ultrasound facilities
  • ECG (Electrocardiology)
  • Endoscopy

Which allows them to provide a full service that you would expect from a Hospital Practice.

The Role and Candidate:

Our client is looking for a Veterinary Surgeon with at least two years in practice experience as they would be looking for the successful candidate to hit the ground running. You will be based at the main practice in Hillingdon but you will be covering the branches (all within 15 minutes of the main site) and you will need your own car for this.

The role is full-time and you will be joining the following rota:

  • 1 x day off
  • 1 x 8.30am - 5pm
  • 1 x 8.30am - 6pm
  • 1 x 11am - 8.30pm with inpatient duty (this can be discussed / negotiated. No phones)
  • 1 x 8.30am - 8pm (This can be discussed - we are happy to either pay more for the longer day or shorten it so it's a later start depending on candidates preference)

Experience wise they are looking for a vet that is happy in consults and able to do basic surgeries (neuterings incl bitch spays and pyos) unassisted.

The Remuneration Package:

In return, our client is offering a competitive salary that is commensurate with experience and a benefits package that will be discussed in the interview.
