We are working with a client with a practice based in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire that is looking to recruit a small animal Veterinary Surgeon on a full-time permanent basis.

The Practice:

Our client is a small animal practice with 6 nurses and 5 Receptionists. They like to work as many of their cases up in-house and they have a good client base with many insured clients to facilitate this.

The practice treats a lot of exotic pets but the new candidate is not required to have any knowledge of these and will rarely have to treat them, as they have 2 vets at the practice with a specialist interest. The practice has all the usual toys - digital Xray, ultrasound, endoscopy, in house laboratory, compressed air dentistry, and dental Xray machine. They also have boarding kennels and cattery on-site and a grooming parlour.

The Role and Candidate:

This is a permanent full-time position where you will be working 4 days per week with a weekend rota of one in five (Saturday and Sunday). The weekday shifts are either 09:00-19:00 or 09:00-17:00 alternately, with Saturday hours of 09:00-17:00 and Sunday 11:00-16:00.

There are no out of hours with this role, as they are referred to VetsNow, giving you a great work/life balance.

Our client would prefer a candidate with at least 2 years of post-graduate experience, and good surgical skills are essential. The weekends are sole charge so being comfortable with this would be beneficial, although they will be able to provide some support to start with.

Excellent client care and pet welfare standards are their main priority, so you’ll need to share their passion for delivering this level of service. Along with the support of the rest of the team, you will be able to utilise and develop your skills and expertise to provide a high standard of care to meet your clients’ expectations.

In return, our client is offering a competitive salary that is reflective of experience and benefits package,


Role: Permanent Veterinary Surgeon

Type: Small Animal

Start: ASAP

Hours: Full-Time

Out of hours: None

Sole charge: Some

Salary: Competitive Salary (DOE)
