Permanent Veterinary Surgeon - Southampton

We are working with a small animal practice in Southampton that has a new opportunity for a Veterinary Surgeon to join their passionate and friendly team on a full-time permanent basis.

The Practice:

Due to continued growth, our client is pleased to offer a new opportunity for a Veterinary Surgeon to come and join their passionate and friendly team. The practice is only 6 miles away from central Southampton, and is in an area of family residential homes, a strong retail offering that attracts people from a wide area, and there is easy access to coastal and rural areas.

They would like to meet you if you are a Veterinary Surgeon who already has experience from first opinion practice, and feels comfortable consulting with clients, and is confident in routine surgery. You should be capable of emergency surgery if needed but no OOH work is required. They are keen to meet you if you have any individual passions you wish to pursue such as orthopaedics or exotics but this is not essential.

The Role and Candidate:

Our client is seeking an enthusiastic Veterinary Surgeon who would enjoy a small animal caseload and who already has experience from first opinion practice and feels comfortable consulting and confident in routine surgery. Whilst you will get the chance to work autonomously with some sole charge and have the clinical freedom to treat your patients as you need, you can also benefit from working as part of an experienced and friendly team.

They’re pretty flexible, if you want a full-time position, or a part-time, or something in between, they’re happy to get that for you. They’re closed on Sundays and there is no OOH. There is also admin time factored into your week so that you can breathe and catch up!

The Package:

  • Salary between £45,000 and £55,000 p/a (DOE)
  • 5 weeks holiday
  • CPD allowance up to Certificate level
  • Paid professional membership: RCVS / VDS / BVA 
  • Fully Funded Working Visa
  • No OOH nor Sundays
  • Exclusive company discounts and rewards
  • Contributory Pension
