Permanent Veterinary Surgeon - Slough, Berkshire

We are working with a small animal veterinary practice in the Slough area of Berkshire that is looking for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a full-time permanent basis. This is a sole vet practice with the potential to become a 1.5 Vet practice in the future, so this is the perfect opportunity for a vet to take on a Lead Vet Role.

The Practice:

Our client is a community of passionate veterinary professionals committed to providing truly exceptional care. They are set on building something extraordinary: creating the most forward-thinking and innovative place in the veterinary industry. Their mission to deliver progressive, around-the-clock care means their employees have the very best equipment and treatment options available, including in-house MRI machines and state-of-the-art operating theatres.

They provide ongoing support to their teams, both in practice and through a dedicated training centre. This empowers you to get the very best from the advanced equipment while being on your journey to veterinary excellence.

Although this is a sole vet practice there is a mobile Vet and Graduate Veterinary Surgeons who also visit the practice. You will be supported by a Student Veterinary Nurse and Practice Coordinator/SVN. The clinic feeds into a 24-hr hospital for all out-of-hours care. 

The Role and Candidate:

Our client is seeking a Lead Veterinary Surgeon to join their fantastic clinic in Slough, Berkshire. This role requires an experienced Vet, competent in all routine soft tissue surgeries and medical case management. Experience in managing a team would be beneficial as well as an interest in surgery, although not essential. They are seeking someone with high levels of service, keen to build up client relationships to drive this clinic forward with branch partnership opportunities for the right candidate.

They work to a 4-day week (09:00-19:00) with 1:3 half or 1:6 full weekends at the hospital practice. You will have a fair share of bank holiday duties and minimal on-call duties, to support their dedicated night team if required (approx. 3 weeks of the year).

Key Accountabilities:

  • Leading other vets and clinic team
  • Ensuring clinic performance is maintained and grown
  • Answering client complaints
  • Liaising with regional managers regarding clinic performance
  • Clinical management of own caseload and providing clinical support to other staff members

The Package:

This role offers a fantastic remuneration package base dependent on experience, includes housing allowance, vehicle or £2,500 allowance, £1,500 CPD allowance plus 3-days CPD leave, RCVS, VDS, and BVA membership. 5 weeks annual leave plus bank holidays.

Additional benefits include: Paid sabbatical after every five years service, Company discounts and reward scheme, Access to Employee Assistance Programme, 100% attendance scheme, and Paternity leave
