We are working with a veterinary practice based in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, who is looking for a permanent small animal Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a full-time permanent basis. They are looking for a vet with 2+ years of experience to join their busy Tier 3 hospital team. 

The Practice:

This practice is fully equipped to deal with the widest range of procedures, from check-ups to more life-saving animal surgeries. They have modern, purpose-built premises which have been recently upgraded to include 7 new consulting rooms, a nurse's occupational treatment room, and a separate pharmacy. In addition, they have the following facilities:

  • Digital radiography and ultrasound rooms
  • 2 dental suites with dental radiography
  • 3 surgical theatres
  • Laboratory
  • MRI & CT scanning
  • Endoscopy
  • Chemotherapy suite
  • Separate cat, dog, and rabbit wards

This is a permanent full-time position, where you will be working 40 hours a week (average). Monday-Friday vets usually work 3.5 days (2 x 08:00-20:00 shifts, 1 x 08:00-18:00 and 1 x half-day). There is also a weekend commitment, 1 in 4, Saturday & Sunday 08:00-18:00, they also consider every other Saturday as an alternative  They also believe in work/life balance and they firmly believe everyone should have a lunch break and everyone should expect to leave on time.

This is a great development opportunity as the candidate would be supported by experienced cert holder colleagues with a busy caseload and great kit (CT, scope, in theatre XR, etc).
