Are you looking to join a hugely successful and established practice in Leicester?

We are working with a lovely small animal practice in Leicester that is looking for an additional experienced Veterinary Surgeon to join their friendly team on a full-time permanent basis.

The Practice: 

You will be working with state of the art equipment including digital x-rays, full IDEXX in house labs, ultrasound and microscope, dedicated dental suite with its own x-ray facility and state of the art Im3 processor and Vet-tome. They are an RCVS accredited practice with a robust set of protocols that are regularly changing to be in line with best practice and gold standard. The practice has strong organic growth.

Their clients and pets are at the centre of everything they do and they are looking for a vet who shares the same values. They are always open to ideas of how to better themselves, the team, and the care provided or build the practice further within the local community, whilst following practice protocols for safety.

They have recently expanded onto a purpose-built mezzanine, which has natural light, a great automatic coffee machine needless to say with excellent hot chocolate, and food is ordered with frequency. They hold regular staff meetings as well as Veterinary Nurse clinical meetings. They are also happy to support the teams’ development and currently have colleagues with a keen interest in Orthopaedics, Diagnostic imaging as well as Ophthalmology.

The Role and Candidate: 

This rewarding position is full-time and will include weekends work on a 1:3 rota basis but no OOH, meaning all colleagues can enjoy an excellent work/life balance.

Successful applicants should be confident in an occasional sole charge role and enjoy the variety provided by the clients and colleagues. Ideally, you will also have general surgical and medical skills with a keen interest in Soft tissue surgery and Diagnostic Imaging.

The Benefits:

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

  • Competitive salary, dependent on experience
  • Generous CPD allowance
  • Exclusive company discounts
  • Support towards Certificates and career development
  • Free parking
  • Branded uniform
  • Paid professional fees
  • Contributory pension scheme
