Permanent Veterinary Surgeon, Aberdeen

Role: Permanent Veterinary Surgeon

Type: Small Animal

Location: Aberdeen

Practice: Our client has four practices in the Aberdeen area that provides small animal veterinary services to the local community. They are RCVS Small Animal General Accredited Practice. Providing everything from routine preventative care such as vaccines and wormers, to complicated medical investigations and surgery - all tailored to the pet’s individual needs

Sevices: Offering a wide range of in-house blood analysers, they can provide accurate results in approximately 20 minutes. This enables their Vets to reach a diagnosis quickly and formulate a treatment plan for the pet.

They have modern dental equipment, allowing them to undertake scaling, polishing, and extractions. Their digital x-ray facilities are capable of providing high-quality images of every animal from a hamster to a 90kg Great Dane!

They often use a special type of contrast medium in X-rays. This shows up if there are torn bits of tissue, can highlight foreign bodies, can show the passage of blood vessels, and can identify spinal compressions. Surgical procedures take place in their first-class operating theatre. While under anaesthetic pets are constantly monitored by a Registered Veterinary Nurse.

Duties: They are looking for a highly motivated Veterinary Surgeon, competent in consulting and routine surgery, dentals, and diagnostics. Confident and professional, you will be comfortable in working sole charge. In addition to your excellent clinical skills, you need to be a people-oriented person with strong communication skills. You’ll thrive in a team and have a passion to deliver great clinical quality and fantastic client service

Team: A large team of Veterinary Surgeons that are supported by a dedicated Nursing Team and Support Staff.

Hours: Full-time, working 38hours p/w. The hours are on a rota between the hours of 8 am-7 pm Monday to Friday and some Saturday work 8 am-12.30 / 8 am – 2.30 pm.

OOHS: None

Salary: Competitive salary that is reflective of skills and experience - circa £38,000 p/a

Other Benefits: Will be discussed in the interview
