Permanent Mixed Veterinary Surgeon - Newton Abbot

Type: 50/50 Large and Small Animal with some Equine work

Location: Newton Abbot, Devon

Practice Type: This is a truly independent mixed practice on the southern edge of Dartmoor, hoping to find a new vet to grow their team as the practice expands. They pride themselves on a pragmatic caring approach and being part of the local community.

Team: This is a new position, creating a team of 6 full-time and 2 part-time vets, with 17 other support staff. 

Role: You will work an equally shared 1:6 rota, with a genuine 50:50 large and small animal mix.

  • Large animal work is mainly beef and sheep with a mix of large commercial farms and smallholders, with some equine work.
  • Small animal work is performed mainly at their newly refurbished and extended premises, which have all the usual toys, including direct digital radiography.
  • Their vets cover branch surgeries on an equal rota and are encouraged to follow their own cases up where possible.

Hours: Working a 4.5-day week, they do their own, usually quiet, out-of-hours work, on an equally shared rota, with a 3-day weekend off after every weekend on call. A van or car can be provided depending on the applicant’s preference

Skills/Exp: A confident newly qualified vet, keen to take part in all aspects of mixed practice with the support of experienced colleagues, a direct mentor, and enrolment on a new graduate-specific CPD program would be welcomed at Vetsure approved graduate friendly practice.

The Package: The salary package starts at £32,000 for new graduates and is negotiable based on experience and skills for the right applicant.
