Type: Small Animal

Location: Sheringham, Norfolk

Practice: Type: Part of a group

Sole charge: Yes

Team Info: The practice has 4 full-time and 1 part-time vet across both practices, with an Advanced Practitioner in Feline Medicine. They are also lucky enough to be supported by an experienced team of 5 qualified RVNs, 2 SVNs, and 1 ANA. The support staff is also really experienced and forms an invaluable part of our team. 

Facilities: The practice pride itself on providing a first-class level of first opinion small animal veterinary care. The modern practices sit in ideal locations on the beautiful North Norfolk coast and have been valued parts of the communities for many years, and are always keen to stay up to date with the latest advances in veterinary medicine and surgery.

The Role: They are looking for one or two Veterinary Surgeons to join their dedicated and supportive team. They are looking for individuals who are comfortable with general first opinion small animal consultations, as well routine surgeries. .

Hours: Shift patterns can be flexible, depending on whether full or part-time hours are requested, with the practice being open from 8.30 am until 6 pm Monday to Friday, and 8.30-12 on a Saturday. Full-time hours are 40 hours per week, with Saturday mornings on a fair rota basis.

Weekends: On a fair rota basis

OOHs: The position has no OOH requirements, as this is outsourced to a neighbouring hospital

Branch work: No

Applicant Requirements: They are ideally looking for a qualified veterinary surgeon who has some experience behind them, in order to comfortably tackle the more common routine appointments and surgeries.
