We are currently working with an independent group of practices based in Essex that is looking to recruit a small animal veterinary surgeon to join their friendly and happy team.

This is a fabulous opportunity for a fairly autonomous small animal vet to join a lovely, RCVS accredited practice working from one of their branches based in Essex which is ideally situated for the coast, countryside and swift commute into London.  It would be working as part of a dedicated team of vets and nurses in a practice with a loyal and growing client base. Their friendly and dedicated staff are all trained and experienced in using veterinary equipment available in the practices. These include endoscope and bronchoscope, video autoscope, k-laser, cryosurgery, radiography equipment, tonometer, and much more. They are also able to offer specialist care in: dermatology, behaviour, cardiology, surgery, medicine, and ophthalmology using the latest equipment and materials.

The successful candidate will be responsible for the day to day running of the practice and must be comfortable and competent with sole charge - although they will have recourse to discuss cases with other vets working at other branches within the practice.  Their team will support on-going development or the taking of an advanced certificate as continuous improvement is strongly encouraged.
