We are working with a family-run independent veterinary practice in Carlise, Cumbria is looking for a permanent mixed Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a full-time permanent basis. Our client is open to receiving applications from all levels of experience including new/recent graduates. Their caseload stands at 70% small animal and 30% farm (mostly dairy, some beef, and sheep), with the very occasional equine. As a traditional rural practice, they are willing to tackle anything from exotics through to backyard poultry!

The Practice:

This a family-run independent Veterinary Practice that prides itself on providing the best possible care for the clients and their owners. They are mixed animal practice that provides veterinary services to small animals and large/farm animals, with some equine seen also. Their highly trained and approachable staff are committed to providing high quality, personalised veterinary service.

They offer their clients 24-hour emergency service, which is covered by their own team. At this practice, they are dedicated to becoming the best GP practice in the area and are looking for a teammate that shares this passion in shaping the future. They currently employ 5 vets – 2 part-time (small animal and equine, and Saturday morning consulting) and 3 full time mixed vets on a rota. 

The Role and Candidate:

Their full-time vets work a 4.5 day week as standard, with a long weekend (3.5 day week) following a weekend on call. They would consider part-time hours but would like the successful applicant to participate in their equally shared out of hours rota.

They are looking for someone with excellent common sense, good practical skills, and a genuine enthusiasm for a career in traditional mixed practice. They will consider new and recent graduates for the role – come armed with energy, lots of common sense, and a practical outlook, and they will provide the rest!

The Package:

In return, our client is offering a salary package that ranges from £30,000 to £40,000 p/a depending on experience and includes accommodation. They offer a flexible CPD budget and encourage staff to develop their personal areas of interest.
