Location: Arbroath

Practice Type: Part of a group

Team Info: Currently they have two Clinical Directors, an experienced Vet, and a 2nd-year graduate and they're looking to expand our team. The practice has 3 Registered Veterinary Nurses who now run their own clinics, doing nail clips, post-op discharges and examinations, blood pressure monitoring, and blood sampling. They also have 3 Student Veterinary Nurses, 3 FTE Receptionists, an Animal Care Assistant, and a Practice Manager.

Facilities: This is a well-established practice with branches in a market town and the historic seaside town of Arbroath, both within easy reach of mountains, beaches, and the bright lights of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Dundee.

Both clinics are equipped with iM3 dental machines, digital radiology, and Idexx biochemistry, and haematology equipment, as well as fully equipped operating theatres.

Role: They are looking for an experienced small animal Veterinary Surgeon to join their team. The role would suit an experienced clinician who is ready to take on more responsibilities and help to develop the skills and knowledge of more recent graduates, as well as their own or a recent graduate looking to enhance their knowledge and experience.
