Due to an exciting ongoing business expansion, our client is looking for a small animal Veterinary Surgeon to join their practice in Edinburgh.

The role is full time will be shared across two locations in the Edinburgh area.

The Company:
Our client prides themselves on their supportive working environment for their teams in Edinburgh. Their practices are bright, spacious, air-conditioned and purposely built to industry leading standards. They are also well equipped and have excellent quality equipment including digital x-ray machine, dental radiography, ultrasound, blood machines and blood pressure monitors. They invest in new equipment for the surgery every year and take into consideration the needs of the patients as well as the clinical team. All colleagues are encouraged to meet for regular touch points with their line managers aside from more formal appraisals and they cultivate a very open style environment keeping lines of communication strong between the teams and management. Self-development is as important for them as clinical CPD and this year they began a meditation program in the clinic that all colleagues are welcome to participate in. They hold practice meetings and use social media as a way of communicating on a day to day basis. The culture in the surgeries is to promote growth and develop both the individual and the practice. They continually seek out ways to improve the way they work and the service that is delivered. By joining our client in this rewarding position, you will be part of an existing passionate team who is dedicated to providing excellent clinical care at the very heart of the community.

The Role:
Our client is looking to recruit a full-time veterinary surgeon ideally with 2 years post-graduation experience.

You will be working on average 40 hours a week with no OOH (as this is covered by an external provider) and weekends are on a rota basis.

First and foremost our client is looking for someone who has an excellent client manner and the ability to thoroughly and diligently communicate with pet owners in order to address all their expectations. You must be competent at delivering consistent preventative healthcare advice routinely to all who visit the surgery. You should be confident with elective surgeries and must be able to time manage effectively to get through the daily procedure list.

Working well with a team of experienced RVNs who are in charge of the smooth running of the practice is very important in completing the daily workload. Thorough discussions with clinical colleagues with regards to ongoing cases are a must for maintaining consistency of clinical care and high standards of client service. Protocol compliance is important and therefore the role requires a high level of attention to detail. Enthusiasm and good humour are essential and developing any areas of veterinary interest are strongly promoted. 

Our client offers a great package and benefits including a competitive salary, CPD, comprehensive benefits and a full range of exclusive discounts for use within the group.
