Permanent Veterinary Surgeon - Crewe

Type: Small Animal

Location: Crewe

Practice Type: Part of a group

Facilities: The practice has been family run since 2004! A very loyal and pleasant client base with many clients who have been with them for nearly 20 years. They have all the equipment you would expect a surgery certificate holder and a medicine certificate holder to want and probably a few more besides.

Team: They have a lovely, friendly, close-knit team of 3 reception ladies, 3 Student Veterinary Nurses, 4 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 1 Veterinary Care Assistant, and 6 Veterinary Surgeons. They have 3 certificate holders in the practice and so clinical work is performed to a high standard. They actively encourage CPD to continue this high standard. The team often enjoys ‘pub Friday’ which in summer re-locates to the cricket club so they can all enjoy the early evening sun.

Role: They are looking for a small animal Veterinary Surgeon to join the friendly and supportive team. If you would rather do a consult-only role, then they have a medicine certificate holder to support you and if you wish to further your surgical skills then one of the surgeons is an advanced practitioner in small animal surgery so can help you gain the skills and cases needed for a certificate. If you are a new graduate wanting to build on the skills you have learned at University, then the above support will also help to nurture you in your early career. 


  • A typical full-time role would involve working 40 hours per week over 4 week days.
  • On-call is normally a 1 in 4 rota but their weekend on-call consists of Saturday morning consultations until 12 pm and then in-patient care only (if there are any), weeknight on-call is again in-patient only care as Vets Now covers the emergency work. 

Applicant Requirements: They are looking for a confident and friendly individual who can practice veterinary medicine to a high standard. You should have good communication skills. Experience would be ideal but not essential for the role.

Salary: The salary will be up to £65,000 (DOE)
