The Role

Due to the well-deserved retirement of the founder of Framlingham Vets, we are looking for an Experienced Veterinary Surgeon to join our friendly team. Ideally, this is a full-time position, working a 4 day week with 1:3 Saturday and no OOH, but we are open to flexible working for the right candidate. The clinical director and the practice manager are very conscious in providing staff with an excellent work/life balance and a striving work environment. The role will be well supported by a network of like-minded professionals. We can offer candidates an excellent relocation package if required. Own interests are strongly encouraged (especially if in cardiology, internal medicine, surgery or anaesthesia). 

About Us

Framlingham is a quaint historic town in Suffolk, it is known for being one of the most desirable places to live in the country and it is more famous for its beautiful Castle which towers over the town (and more recently for Ed Sheeran!). Our practice is small animal only, operating over 6 days. The building is purposely-built, modern and spacious. We have separate dog and cat kennels. We run a range of nurse-run consultations including geriatric pet, weight control, travel and dental clinics. We have a modern range of “usual toys”, but there is also budget for more specified equipment to suit the applicant’s interests. We run on site orthopaedic, soft tissue surgery and dermatology referrals. We have a full complement of nursing and reception staff plus an experienced practice manager. Two other experienced vets complete the team (one with a strong interest in dermatology and dentistry). Head to our website and social media pages to get an idea of who we are. 

Applicant Requirements

The ideal candidate will be a confident small animal clinician who is passionate about first opinion veterinary medicine with good communication skills and a drive to practice veterinary medicine at a high standard. Want to know more about working for IVC? Check out our benefits!
