We are a privately owned, client friendly practice in Nottinghamshire with 4 fully functioning surgeries and two branch practices.
We have 2 small animal positions available, with no out of hours work but some daytime weekend work on a rota basis (1 in 5) with rota'd days off tied to the following weekend in work. The standard working days and hours for this are negotiable.
The candidate will be able to decide if the role includes surgery or purely medicine (consults and diagnostics/imaging).
We have good a mix of experience with certificate holders, vets currently studying for certificates and several of us with 8-15 years experience who are happy with the shorter titles! We work alongside a very enthusiastic mixed team who cover the on call work currently with plans of a 24 hour hosptial in the next 9-18 months.
We are looking for a candidate who can stand their own with sole charge when needed.
As you should expect from any good employer we are looking for people to fit in to a friendly and helpful team dynamic, who can be an asset to the practice while progressing both personally and professionally.
We encourage clinical freedom and allow staff to find a role or niche they enjoy within the practice and all of our positions have the flexibility to adapt to areas of clinical interest and we expect roles to evolve over time.
We have a very good range of diagnostic equipment.
For the small animal side we have; digital x-ray with dental xray, digital endoscope/rhinoscope, ultrasound, ECG, suction, pulse ox and recently upgraded Idexx lab equipment alongside a newly developed in house microbiology lab.
As a practice we like to be progressive in our approach to diagnostics so will invest in equipment that will be utilised and beneficial to the practice.
We encourage relevant CPD with a focus on areas of personal improvement and interest. We have a standard 5 days of CPD allowance and study for certificates is welcomed and funded as part of your CPD allowance.
We currently cover all of our own out of hours work which is staffed by the mixed vets within the practice. We run extended weekend consulting hours from our Newark branch on a 1 in 5 rota of small animal vets which is planned to be staffed by 2 small animal vets working together to cover the work required, but no routine surgery.
We reward all weekend work with time off tied to the following weekend. Small animal staff working over the weekend will have a full day back for each of the 2 shifts worked over the weekend (Saturday 12.00 – 5.30pm and Sunday 10am to 4.30pm).
We also arrange multiple optional CPD evenings at local pubs with great food to keep you up to date with new products, the days of trying to squeeze in lunch and learns are gone!
Generous package based on experience and role can include; house, car, phones, broadband, society membership and VDS cover.
