Permanent Oncology Veterinary Surgeon - Leeds

We are working with a small group of small animal veterinary practices in the Leeds area of West Yorkshire that is looking to recruit Day Veterinary Surgeons on a full or part-time permanent basis.

The Practice:

Our client has 4 clinics and 1 Tier 3 accredited veterinary hospital that has been providing a high standard of veterinary services to the Leeds area for over 40 years. They are continually updating their facilities and investing in equipment. They are also extremely proud of all their team and it is a credit to their commitment and compassion that they can provide this level of care to pets.

Three of the five branches have operating facilities, two of the branches can perform neutering and routine surgical procedures along with x-rays and laboratory tests. All of the clinics have fully stocked dispensaries.

They have phenomenal day and night teams. They have a large vet team including seven certificate holders in surgery, oncology, ophthalmology, and dermatology. They are supported by an experienced nurse team and a fantastic front-of-house team.

  • Hours: Full-time or part-time; 4-day week; 1:4 weekends; no out of hours (OOH); open to a flexible rota for the right candidate.
