Permanent Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon - West Sussex

We are currently working with a friendly independent RCVS accredited companion animal practice whose superb team of vets and nurses seek an enthusiastic colleague to join them on a permanent basis as a small animal veterinary surgeon. 

The Practice:

This is a lovely practice serving the Arun valley area in West Sussex that has a commitment to give pets the same care we would want for ourselves. The position involves working as part of a 6 vet, 7 RVN team at their main Littlehampton Clinic. Just 15 minutes south of the stunning South Downs, this attractive seaside town is the perfect location for wind and kite-surfing, water-sports, walking, cycling, MTB and exploring, and is in easy reach of Brighton, Chichester and London. Their range of modern facilities includes digital x-ray, endoscope, rhinoscope, ultrasound, ECG, Slit Lamp, suction, pulse ox and recently upgraded lab equipment. 

The Role:

This is a permanent full-time position working 4 days per week plus 1:4 Saturday or Sunday, No OOHs. Consultations are 15 minutes on average, and vets are encouraged to follow their cases. Surgical caseload is shared equally. Case discussions are encouraged and welcomed. They no longer undertake their own OOHs but they do work their cases up to a high level and hospitalise their inpatients 24/7. They actively encourage clinical freedom, CPD and career progression and fund a certificate. Their experienced vets would also be happy to support a recently qualified candidate.  

The Candidate:

This position would suit an ambitious, keen small animal veterinary surgeon who has good communications skills
