Northvet Veterinary Group is a long-established vet practice in Orkney, a group of Islands just off the north coast of Scotland.

The Practice
We are a 12 vet mixed practice with large animal work making up around three quarters of our work load. Our farms are predominantly beef suckler with some dairy and sheep. We have 3 branches and are well equipped for small animal and equine work too.

Located just off the northern tip of Scotland we enjoy beautiful sandy beaches, visiting Orcas and other cetaceans, stunning scenery and lots of wildlife. Orkney has a great music scene with various festivals
throughout the year, sports centres and clubs, wonderful restaurants and bars, art, culture and world famous archaeology. No wonder it appears on the top 20 best places to live in the UK!

The Role
We have an opportunity for a new vet to join our friendly and supportive team. Experienced vets and new graduates are invited to apply. Due to the nature of our work we are ideally looking for someone with a keen interest in large animal work. Our clients are very progressive and Orkney is renowned for livestock of a high quality. This role can be a mixed one or mainly large animal based. Our unique rota system allows for good time off.

The package
A competitive salary is on offer along with a car and accommodation. CPD is encouraged and funded and various membership fees paid.

Further information is in the accompanying job description.
