Contract Type

Grove referrals are looking for an additional Orthopaedic Specialist to increase the team to 4 surgeons.  Applicants should be accredited specialists in orthopaedics / surgery although 'exam-ready' candidates will also be considered. An interest or experience in spinal surgery would be a distinct advantage. Consideration may be given to an experienced certificate holder.

We offer a well-established orthopaedic referral service for veterinary practices within East Anglia. Our current team of three surgeons have worked together for over 10 years and all have advanced training and qualifications in small animal orthopaedics and spinal surgery. With the availability of dedicated surgical facilities/equipment, advanced imaging (MRI, CT), our team of surgical interns and a highly motivated nursing team, we can provide the best possible standards of care for every patient that we treat.

You will be working a 4-day week. There may be some flexibility on the number of weekdays worked, but being part of the equally shared on-call weekend rota (1 in 4) is essential.

The Grove Veterinary Hospital is located in rural Norfolk, only 10 minutes drive from the beautiful Norfolk coastline and 25 miles from Norwich a modern medieval city, with its flourishing arts, music and cultural scene, superb for shopping with a host of award winning restaurants, bars and great nightlife. Norfolk has offerings to suit all but the practice is also within an hour's drive of Cambridge or Newmarket and is well served for air travel – Norwich (30 mins) and Stansted (90 mins).

We offer an excellent salary and a good work life balance within a friendly team
