Bury St Edmunds

An exciting opportunity has arisen in Bury St Edmunds for a Veterinary Surgeon, on either a part time or full time basis.

You would be joining a team made up of 3 Vets, 3 Nurses, 2 VCA,
1 Receptionist and 1 trainee Nurse. 

The Vet team consists of Vanessa and Ana who have 13+ years’ experience, whilst Maria has over 5 years’ experience. In the Nurse team Claire & Denise have 20+ years’ experience whilst Hana is an experienced veterinary receptionist with 10+ years’ experience. 

The practice Partner, Ana Xavier, graduated from Lisbon University in 2004, and worked in Utrecht, Netherlands until moving to Britain in 2006. Her main areas of interest are endocrinology, orthopaedics and acupuncture. Vanessa has a special interest in small furries and has recently completed her General Practitioner Certificate in Small Animal Medicine.
Maria has a special interest in Internal Medicine.

The practice is very well equipped with capnography, digital x-ray, ultrasound, full state of the art IDEXX lab (haematology, biochemistry, in-house T4, fructosamine, bile acids, cortisol, PCV), blood pressure monitoring, pulse oximeter, v-gel and separate dog, cat and isolation
wards. The team see approx. 45% cats, 45% dogs and 10% small furries with approx. 45% insured clients. Orthopaedics (CCLR, FHNE, pinning), acupuncture and basic physiotherapy are all carried out in practice so we can guarantee exposure to a wide variety of cases.

This position would suit a recent graduate vet as there is little sole charge and a great deal of support and mentoring from more experienced vets.

Surgical training will also be provided if needed. You will be passionate about providing an excellent service to clients; be able to work up cases to a high standard and have a real enthusiasm for the role.

Due to the flexibility of the practice, we are able to consider both part time and full time applicants, covering between 20 and 40 hours, with a 1 in 5 weekend rota. The surgery is located inside Pets at Home, allocated parking to staff at back of surgery.

As you would expect from the market leader in small animal veterinary care we offer a supportive and friendly working environment together with career development opportunities, an excellent package and great benefits that include; competitive salary, min. £900 funded CPD allowance and time off, pension and exclusive company discounts and rewards - including 20% off t Pets at Home, and the Vet Group.

We endeavor to support your unique interests and to the best of our ability provide you with additional training / time off for training.

We are an Equal Opportunities Employer.
