Permanent Experienced Veterinary Surgeon - Basingstoke

We are working with a client who is looking for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon to join their close-knit team in Basingstoke, Hampshire, on a permanent full-time basis.

The Practice:

You would be joining a very friendly team of 5 FTE Vets, 10 RVNs, 6 Receptionists, and a Practice Manager. They are a well-equipped, modern practice with the usual toys including dental X-ray, AO-ASIF kit including air drill, ultrasound machine, and multi-parameter monitor.

The Role and Candidate:

You should be a confident Vet with at least 3 years of experience.

 - Rota is a 4 day week (40 hours), 9 am-7 pm.

 - One Saturday in 3, 9 am - 6 pm.

 - Saturdays are emergency only with no pre-booked appointments; there are 2 Vets, 2 Nurses, and 2 receptionists working on Saturdays 

 - No Sunday work, no OOH.

A normal day would look like this:

 - 9-10 am, admits and transfers from OOH (if any).

 - 10-1 pm, 15 min consults (30 min for complex cases and euthanasia)

 - 1-3 pm, check your inpatients, lunch, and admin work.

 - The operating Vet doesn’t have any appointments in the afternoon so usually manages to deal with the ops list but you are free to help between 1-3 pm if you want to do your own stuff (ie, ultrasounds or minor procedures)

 - 3-6 pm, 15 min consults

You would have 1 operating day and 3 consult days per week.

The Package:

  • Salary of between £40,000 - £60,000 per annum depending on experience
  •  RCVS, BVA, and VDS fees paid
  •  Company Pension Scheme and other corporate perks including Pets at Home discounts.
  •  Funded and encouraged CPD
  • Birthday day off
