Permanent Veterinary Surgeon, Ashford

We are working with a friendly close-knit veterinary practice in the Ashford area of Kent that is looking for an experienced small animal Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a full-time permanent basis. They are looking for a confident vet that is comfortable in a sole charge role that will be working between two practices approx 15 miles apart.

The Practice:

Our client knows that pets are important family members and they take pride in forming lasting relationships with them and their owners, within the community. Their friendly vets, nurses, and support team are dedicated to pet’s well-being and look forward to meeting new clients.

They understand the value of preventative healthcare for pets and offer a Pet Healthcare Plan as an easy way to budget and save money for all pet’s preventative healthcare needs throughout their life.

If pets become unwell or are injured out of hours, an emergency service based at their Veterinary Hospital and provided by Vets Now is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide the best medical and surgical treatments available to help them on the road to recovery.

They have all the usual equipment including Doppler ultrasound, digital x-ray including dental x-ray, monitoring equipment, and an in-house lab.

With no out-of-hours requirements, this role supports a good work/life balance. You will be part of the shared rota for surgeries and consults, which are 15-minute appointments.

You will be working between two of our clients' practices and you must be comfortable in a sole charge role.

Our client is looking for a Vet with approx 3 years of qualified practice experience.
