Permanent Veterinary Surgeon, Glasgow

Type: Small animal

Location: A beautiful area near Glasgow city and really not far to the gorgeous countryside, hills, and lochs to enjoy on your day off or weekends.

Practice Type: Part of a group

Team Info: They have a team of 6 vets (3 part-time, 3 full-time), 5 RVNs (2 part-time and 3 full-time), 2 nurse students, 3 receptionists (1 part-time and 2 full-time), and 1 practice manager. Everybody is friendly and they laugh every day, it is fun to work there, with minimal stress thanks to good organisation.

Facilities: They have the usual equipment (Idexx lasercyte and catalyst, doppler, infusion pump, new dental machine, dental x-ray etc…) and more equipment is on the way to improve services and care for patients.


  • Their diary is well organised with time blocked for a coffee break in the morning, 1 hour lunch time with 30 minutes catching up time around that time to make sure they do get lunch, and catching up slots in the afternoon (they are not asked to consult 3 hours in a row without a break).
  • They also have some protected admin time once a week and home time is precious 
  • They have a good share of surgical time and consulting time.
  • The manager is very flexible and will do all she can to make sure the team is happy, and as stress-free as possible in general, they will help each other during the day, swapping shifts, etc.

Role: The ideal candidate would be an experienced vet looking for a full-time job (40hrs/week + 1 in 5 Saturdays morning) but part-time and less experienced but confident vets would be considered too.

Weekends: They work 1 Saturday morning in 5 and it is only 9 am-12 pm. Those hours are counted as overtime. Overtime is paid for or can be taken in lieu as you wish.

OOHs: None

Sole Charge: Some


  • Competitive salary that is reflective of skills and experience
  • 5.6 weeks of holiday including bank holiday.
  • RCVS and VDS fees are paid for
  • There is an allocated CPD budget, CPD days are paid along with travel expenses. 

They are really proud of their team and if you would like to join them in a role where you are supported and valued and where you can thrive at doing what you do best they would love to hear from you.
