Permanent Veterinary Surgeon - Cardiff

Our client is looking for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon to further expand their team of dedicated Vets and Nurses to help increase the services they offer to clients.

Type: Small Animal

Location: Rhiwbina, Cardiff

Practice: Small Animal Hospital

Team: The team is made up of 6 vets, and 6 nurse teams alongside support staff. The vets have years of experience so there is good support both surgically and medically - all of them are willing to help one another and discuss cases.

Facilities: They are an established 3 branch 1st opinion practice based in Cardiff, they are well equipped with an in-house lab, digital x-ray, K laser, u/s scanner, Laparoscopic and endoscopic equipment, and dental x-ray. They try to do as much in-house as they can and allow the vets full clinical freedom.

Hours:  The working day is 9 am-7 pm with a lunch break in the middle. They use a dedicated emergency service so no nights or weekends, (other than rota’s Saturday mornings 9 am-1 pm) The f/t vets work a 4-day week and always get the same day off each week so a good work-life balance can be achieved. 

Sole Charge: Yes

Branch Work: Yes. A driving license is essential to travel between branches.

Applicant Requirements: An experienced veterinary surgeon is required, ideally, with leadership and management knowledge and relevant experience preferred. The ability to work under sole charge is a must as well as being confident doing routine consults.

Salary: Up to £75,000 plus benefits (subject to experience)

Benefits: They recognise that people are fundamental to the success of their business. Investing in people, premises, and processes is at the heart of what they do. In addition to a competitive base salary, you will benefit from -
