We are currently recruiting for a charity clinic in East London

'We need an additional Veterinary Surgeon for our large charity clinic in East London, providing essential assistance to low-income pet-owners including referral cases.  

If you want to see cases through without the usual limiting financial constraints and have an unrivalled opportunity to expand and improve your skills then consider joining our team at Canning Town. We accept referrals from private vets over a wide area where often the owner's only other alternative is euthanasia of their pet. We are now looking for a very experienced Vet with good all-round skills, some level of orthopaedics, advanced soft tissue surgery and experience of emergency and critical care. We are well-equipped with Xray, ultrasound, haematology and biochemistry machines, endoscopes, air-driven dental machines, etc. As well as routine surgery we see many challenging medical and surgical cases.  A new three storey extension at Canning Town has provided the clinic with extra theatres in response to our increasing workload.

We may consider a short term contract for a minimum of six months.

You will work Monday to Friday each week. As a Charity Clinic we believe it is important to cover our own out of hours to give continuity for our patients and clients so you will join the rota to provide a joint out of hours service for nights, weekends and Bank Holidays, for which you will receive time off in lieu. The rota is usually between a 1:6 and 1:8 depending on the number of Vets employed and available to work at the time. We offer a competitive salary and CPD allowance. Accommodation may be available if needed.
