Full Time Mixed Practitioner Sought

Fantastic opportunity for an enthusiastic mixed practitioner in a friendly, popular, growing and dynamic practice, in beautiful East Lothian, the stunning coastal county in Southern Scotland, East of Edinburgh.

The role combines large animal work with medical and surgical first opinion companion animal work.

We are a multi-centred mixed practice with ultra modern facilities, an excellent team of nursing and support staff, and an attitude focused on patient and client care which makes our clinics extremely pleasant and
rewarding places to work in. We have a team of 12 first opinion vets (mixed and companion) and a rotation of visiting specialist consultants covering medical and surgical small animal disciplines from our hospital base in Haddington.

The position offers a mix of routine large animal work (farm and equine) and standard first opinion medical and surgical caseloads. In addition, there is the opportunity to gain experience working with any of our specialist companion consultants. This offers a great chance to undertake a full range of standard first opinion consultations and case work-ups, along with standard surgical procedures, but maintain case contact with internal referrals. The successful applicant will be based at our
Haddington Head Office.

The practice provides its own OOH cover and the position entails a 1 in 5 rota covering evenings and weekends.

Some experience of mixed practice is essential, but the ideal candidate will be friendly, empathetic and focused on the highest standards of client care and patient care. Good communication skills with clients are essential as is respect for the wider practice team.

This is a flexible appointment which would suit candidates seeking a permanent position or candidates seeking a long term locum arrangement.

A competitive salary commensurate with experience is offered, along with an annual CPD allowance.

There is a generous holiday allowance for permanent candidates as days off are given for weekends on duty. To apply send a CV with a covering letter to Tom Brown by clicking the apply button or email on tom@linksvet.co.uk
