We are working with a charity practice in Cardiff that is looking for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a full-time permanent basis. Their preference would be for someone with 3yrs experience that is used to a busy working environment.

The Practice:

Our client has a purpose-built single-story clinic that has staff parking and a newly refurbished waiting room. To manage their busy caseload they have six consult rooms, four of which are shared which are ideal for teaching and teamwork. Off a spacious preparation area, there are two separate theatres are used for concurrent surgeries with one ideal for orthopaedics, in addition to a tub table with a dental machine, a new high-quality ultrasound machine in an adjacent room, and a digital radiography suite. The practice has access to a standard endoscopy unit and a range of orthopaedic kit including ASIF and hand tools.
