Due to continued expansion, our client is looking for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon to join their small animal department in Lanark, Scotland on a permanent basis. This role can be either full or part-time and the ideal candidate would have a minimum of 2-3 years' post-graduate experience.

The Practice:

Our client is a forward-thinking, established, Tier 3 RCVS hospital with an excellent reputation within the community. They are a 4-site mixed veterinary practice with three small animal practices and their team consists of 38 vets (of which 13 are small animal vets), with an experienced support team of RVNs and nursing Their custom-built flagship practice in Lanark is air-conditioned, spacious, well equipped and includes Endoscopy, Ultrasound, Digital X-Ray, Laparoscopy, In-House Lab and dedicated Dental suite with a dental x-ray. 

The Role and Candidate:

Our client is ideally looking for experienced and enthusiastic vets, skilled in general consultations and surgery, to join their small animal, first-opinion hospital practice. You must be able to deal with a wide variety of cases and be happy to mentor junior team members as required. 

The ideal candidate should have a minimum of 2-3 years’ experience. Continuous CPD is strongly encouraged and, as most candidates will be considering further training, an RCVS certificate will be fully paid for if required.

When on-call, you must stay in the practice (accommodation on site) and will work one week of nights (no working during the day when on-call). There is also a separate 1 in 10 daytime weekend rota to give the night vet respite. Following the week of nights, the vets get a long 4-day weekend off; and a weekday off after the weekend of days.

  • A competitive salary
