We are working with a friendly and well-established two-branch practice in the Colchester area of Essex that is looking for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a full-time permanent basis. They are looking for someone who is confident with surgery and is a team player.

The Practice:

Our client is a Tier II accredited practice registered with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Practice Standards Scheme. Their highly trained and experienced staff strive to provide the best medical, surgical, and nursing care for their patient's health. They believe in delivering up-to-date services in a kind and compassionate fashion, as well as treating their clients in a caring and sensitive manner. Their facilities have been designed with clients and pets in mind:

  • Two waiting rooms enable separate areas for quieter patients from our more boisterous visitors.
  • Modern and fully equipped operating theatre.
  • A full range of internal and external diagnostic facilities including blood testing, ECG heart recording, endoscopy, ultrasonography, light microscopy, x-ray suite, air-driven dental machine, ear irrigation system, a multi-parameter anaesthesia monitor, and a Tonometer.
  • Separate cat and dog wards.
  • Isolation facilities.

The practice is registered with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and is inspected regularly, ensuring that they comply with all health and safety regulations and that they provide the highest standards of care within the practice. They are an RCVS training practice and have 14 nurses, 10 of whom are qualified and have also gained a silver ISFM award for the practice, and an RWAF silver award. 

The Role and Candidate:

Our client is looking for a permanent Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a full or part-time in their independent two-site practice in north Essex. They are looking for an enthusiastic, social, and caring small animal vet to join their friendly and supportive team of 11 vets (8 FTE) ideally full time, however, they are willing to consider part-time working requests. 

Client experience and patient care are at the forefront of what they do, good communication skills, both with colleagues and clients are an incredibly important tool. Candidates should be interested in working up and following through with their cases to completion or handing them over to colleagues when appropriate. They are looking for someone who will enjoy being part of a team, they have a great, positive, happy culture and have a fantastic support team of 10 qualified RVN’s. 

Securing the right candidate for them is more important than the level of experience.
