We are recruiting for an experienced permanent Veterinary Surgeon with an interest in exotics, to join a lovely team at a friendly independent practice in Kent.

The Client:
This RCVS accredited independent practice prides itself on a caring, professional, gold- standard service and sees 85-90% small animal cases, with the remainder exotics, including birds, reptiles, and small furries. The practice is proud to offer its own exotics ward with all the equipment you’d need to manage a variety of exotics cases. The practice has excellent facilities, including digital radiography, ultrasonography, excellent surgical facility, separate dog and cat wards and is a cat-friendly clinic. There are 8 vets and 9 Nurses to work alongside and the practice is in a fantastic location; 45 minutes away from both London and the coast!

The Role:
This full-time time position working 4 days/week and 1:6 weekends (9am-4pm Saturday and 10am-12midday) and 1:6 Saturdays only (9am-4pm). There is no OOH and an average of 40-42hours/ week. You will be working with trained nurses, leading the practice’s exotics department as their sole exotics vet, so this position would be ideal for a vet who is wanting to embark on, in the process of completing, or already has an exotics certificate.

The Candidate:
You will be an experienced vet with an interest in exotics, ideally with at least 4 years’ experience.

In return you will be offered a fantastic salary dependent on your skills and experience, paid VDS cover, pension and generous CPD.
