We are working with a fantastic independent hospital practice in Ashford, Kent, who are in search of a Veterinary Surgeon to join their team on a permanent, full-time basis.

 

The Practice:

As you would expect from a hospital practice, they are equipped with all the latest equipment and facilities, including Digital X-ray, Ultrasound, IDEXX Lab equipment, Endoscope etc and operate a VetSpace computer system. The practice prides themselves on forming lasting relationships with patients and their owners, and have a fantastic team of 4 full-time vets, 2 part-time vets, and 6 nurses.

 

The Role:

The practice requires a vet to work weekdays from 8:30 am to 6:30 pm, with one late finish per week working from 10 am to 7 pm. Days are a mixture of consults and operations undertaken on a rota basis. Vets have the opportunity to carry their own cases through from start to finish.

 

The weekend rota involves working Saturdays only, either a short or a long day from 9 am to 5 pm or 9 am to 3 pm. Vets receive time off in lieu for working a Saturday. The rota for this is 2:6 (i.e. one short Saturday and one long Saturday every 6 weeks).

 

There is no out of hours requirement, this is covered by an external provider.

 

There is unlikely to be any sole charge required in this role, but branch work may be required as holiday or sickness cover.

 

In return, the practice can offer a salary from £30,000 upwards depending on experience, along with RCVS fees, CPD allowance of £1,500, pension scheme and 20 days holiday plus bank holidays.
