We are currently recruiting on behalf of a fantastic small animal practice based in Ashford, who are looking for an enthusiastic and dedicated part-time Veterinary Surgeon to join their experienced team.


The Practice:

The practice provides a relaxed, friendly and calm environment for pets and their owners, and ensure that the staff always have time to give them their full attention.

The clinic is based in a tranquil business park that was formerly a working farm. The experienced and friendly team is made up of 3 full-time vets (1 certificate holder and two who are currently studying towards certificates), 3 RVNs, 3 SVNs, and a reception and support team.


The Role:

This is a part-time, permanent, veterinary surgeon position, working 2 days per week. One day from 9 am to 5 pm, and one from 9 am to 7 pm. Nights duties and out of hours are covered by an external provider but there will be one evening on call per week until 9 pm. There is a weekend rota of 1:6, with Saturday clinics from 10 am to 12 pm, Sunday clinics from 10 am to 11 am, and the remainder of the weekend on call until 9 pm when the external provider takes over. Days are a mixture of scheduled consults and operations, working to 15-minute consultations. No sole charge is required, the practice aims to have 2 vets in practice at all times.


The Candidate:

The practice has an experienced and stable team, and recruit very rarely. The team gets on very well and it is hoped that the new vet will fit in and share the same ethos as the rest of the team. The practice is willing to consider applicants of all experience levels, though an interest in exotics would be beneficial as the practice sees a variety of different species.


In return, the practice can offer a competitive salary and generous CPD allowance, as well as staff pets receiving treatment at cost price.


This is an excellent opportunity for someone looking for part-time hours while delivering a high standard of care in a first-rate clinical environment, alongside specialist veterinary surgeons.
