Permanent Veterinary Surgeon - Isle of Wight

Type: Small Animal

Location: Isle of Wight

Local area: While you aren’t at work you soon come to realise you are living somewhere quite special and unique. You may only be 3 miles off the south coast, an hour from the mainland with 80 ferry crossings per day, but right on your doorstep, you have the coastal scenery, sailing, surfing, paddleboarding, golf, horse riding, and some beautiful pubs.

Services/Facilities: They have state-of-the-art equipment which includes a CT scanner, laparoscopic surgery, video endoscopy, new ultrasound, and that is without mentioning the fact they are building a brand-new surgery

Team: Also, a fantastic team within a people-centric environment, they share, they help, and they encourage your development. If development is your thing, then they encourage you to do it with the enhanced CPD allowance, coupled with a solid team of experienced vets, this is a chance to really take your career to the next step

Role: They have multiple amazing opportunities for enthusiastic and dedicated Veterinary Surgeons to join their flexible family-friendly team

Hours: They are very open to discussing the hours that suit you – whether you’re considering a full-time, part-time or term-time contract. Many of their staff work flexibly with the potential to add extra hours to supplement your base salary. One thing is certain though, they close at 5.30 pm and they ensure that the team does finish on time.

OOHS/Weekends: There is currently no OOH required as this is being covered by another practice.

Duties: Ensuring you have a work-life balance to explore and make the most of this beautiful island is important to us. They are happy to accommodate specific interests so you can make this role your very own with options to perform more surgery or more consultations, other vets prefer to be out on the road more doing home visits. 


  • Preferably you will have experience as a veterinary surgeon in clinical practice.
  • They would welcome candidates that are happy to work flexibly in a team environment and who are keen to enhance their skillset with additional CPD.
