Practice: They have two branches that have recently joined together

Facilities: This is a new, purpose-built practice with great facilities including 4 consult rooms, cat ward, dog ward, operating theatre, digital x-ray, dental x-ray, ultrasound, and brand-new laparoscopic equipment. Both of their vets are extremely experienced and have further certificates in surgery, which will enable the successful candidate to have copious amounts of support, allowing them to progress with confidence into the next stage of their career. Due to the vet teams’ skill set, the clinic routinely offers more advanced surgical support to clinics in the North-West region, meaning there is the opportunity to experience a varied caseload. 

Team: Their experienced team also benefits from a clinic manager/HVN, alongside 2 nurses and 2 client care coordinators. They are working towards the group patient safety award and one of their nursing team has a keen interest in behaviour and has undergone further training, so they are keen to develop this service at the clinic level.

Role: This practice is currently experiencing an exciting period of growth and development, and as result, they have a fantastic new opportunity available for a Veterinary Surgeon who is looking to take the next step in their career. This role will be a general practice Vet role with a mix of consultations and surgical cases, with the support of a highly experienced and progressive clinical team.

Their out-of-hours is provided by Vets Now, Manchester. At this practice, their teams’ work-life balance and wellbeing are always top priority. As a group, they are trialing a flexible rota in several clinics, so they’d love to discuss the specifics of how you could work the above hours, with you.

OOHs: None

Duties: There will be a mixture of surgery and consults each day.

Sole Charge: This is a sole charge role, working alongside a Registered Veterinary Nurse and Receptionist.
