Permanent Experienced Veterinary Surgeon - King's Lynn, Norfolk

Type: Small Animal

Location: King's Lynn, Norfolk

Practice Type: As an independent practice they are hugely proud of what they achieve each day and of the team that does it. 

Team: They currently have 13 Vets, all with different interests at work and hobbies at home. Individuality is embraced here and they encourage growth within the whole team. They believe a stick in a bundle cannot be broken. They work together, using each other’s strengths, to bring the best outcomes for patients. 

Support: Their team is wonderful! Vets are supported by a great front-of-house team and an incredible 24-strong nursing team. 

Growing the team skills: Currently, they have Veterinary Certificate holders in Surgery, and Medicine, with others looking to finish theirs in Ophthalmology, Cardiology, ECC, and Surgery. They also have a graduate entry scheme to give new graduates a more structured and supportive start to their Veterinary career, as we know this can be a difficult, challenging time. 

Facilities: Today our client is an RCVS Level 3, and ISFM ‘Gold Standard’ Hospital, full of fun exciting toys (DR X-Ray, CT, Cardiology level ultrasound, Dental suite with dental X-Ray, and an array of scopes) that is open 24/7, with a Nurse and Vet on-site at all times. They have a second practice nearby and all team members spend time at both practices to ensure good team morale and a sense of cohesion. They are a single team working over two locations. No separation, no competition. They have a beautifully light and airy prep room, theatre suite, dental suite, lab, CR X-Ray, and separate Dog and Cat wards. 

Role: Put simply, someone who wants to give their patients and clients, the best care possible. If you are looking for colleagues who do their very best for their patients, want to strive to keep up-to-date with research, want to work and play hard, and want to continue to develop and improve, then this is the team for you! 


  • Their standard working week is 4 days, with 1-in-5 weekend.
  • They run their own nights, with a working shift, currently 1 block of 7 nights every 10 weeks, with 7 days recovery following.
  • Each day they start consulting at 9:40 am with a protected time during the day to allow for you to return phone calls.
  • The front door is closed between 12.30 and 1.30 pm so you can have some lunch and enjoy a little "you" time.
  • Although this is their standard rota they are open to being flexible. They understand that people and their lives are unique and would always be happy to discuss other options.

Salary: The salary of £43,000 - £65,000 per annum dependent on experience and rota. 

Benefits: Other benefits include full private healthcare from day one of employment. If you have children, they cover them as well. An Employee Assistance Programme, monthly prize draw (and a pack of Haribo), Bright Exchange, an additional holiday based on length of service, your birthday off, team members’ children each receive a £100.00 book voucher on their birthday (reading is important), and uncapped CPD or Certificate support.
