Permanent Veterinary Surgeon - Chatham, Kent

Type: Small Animal

Location: Chatham, Kent

Practice Type: Part of a group

Facilities: The practice is small but (they think) perfectly formed, with separate cat and dog kennelling, an open prep area, dedicated theatre, isolation, and consulting rooms. They have most of the usual kit and are open to purchasing more.

Team Info: Their team currently consists of three full-time vets, and two part-time vets presently, though they are looking to expand this. All of our vets have a minimum of five years of clinical experience, there are currently two certificate holders (surgery and exotics) and a colleague studying presently. The vets are supported by an excellent team of qualified nurses and one student nurse, all ably marshaled by their lovely front-of-house advisers!

The Role: They are looking for an enthusiastic colleague to join their established team. They have worked hard to forge a strong reputation locally and have looked after each other during the last challenging eighteen months. To look after their colleagues, they are still operating with a number of COVID restrictions in place and review these regularly.

Hours: The role is ideally full-time (four-day week, inclusion in weekend rota, no out of hours) but they are open to discussion about part-time hours. 

Duties: The role can be very flexible, they are happy to have and support someone looking to progress their career with certification (medicine, imaging, ophthalmology, cardiology all desirable) or someone who wants to be a consulting vet only (they know surgery isn’t for everyone) or someone happy to simply be a good GP. There is also the possibility of partnership/ownership for the right person if that is of interest.

The Package: In return, they offer a competitive salary that is reflective of skills and experience plus a benefits package - full details will be discussed in the interview
