The Role

We require a full time Senior Vet Surgeon at Wright & Morten Small animal department to work primarily at our Macclesfield hospital, with some consulting at our two other branches. After the morning handover from Vets Now and ward round, you will be consulting or operating for the morning, as well as providing a guiding hand for some of the other vets in the team. We're big believers in taking appropriate breaks at work, not just at lunchtime but also a tea stop in the morning and afternoon. There is more consulting in the afternoon and occasional
ops, plus the afternoon ward round and sometime allocated for the paper-based elements of the Senior Vet Role.

About Us

Wright & Morten's main hospital is in Macclesfield, in a location that is hard to beat in terms of easy access to both the hills and the city - we're on the edge of the Peak District but only a short train ride from the bright lights of Manchester.

We have all the facilities you would expect from a small animal hospital - digital x ray, fancy new ultrasound, endoscopy, full Idexx lab suite. We like our lap spays, enjoy emergency and critical care, and would never turn away a chicken or small furry.

We have 6 full time and 4 part time vets giving us about 7.5 full time equivalent vets. Our long established, brilliant and motivated RVNs are highly experienced in caring for our patients and clients. We have a range of visiting Specialists and Advanced Practitioners in imaging, soft tissue surgery, orthopaedics, dermatology and cardiology. We like to be a part of the local community and are frequently called upon to judge a variety of local dog shows or provide cover at the sheepdog trials.

We may be biased, but we think we have the friendliest working environment we've come across.

Applicant Requirements

We are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon with substantial clinical experience. An interest in Dentistry would be an advantage but is not essential, and we would encourage and support working towards a certificate. The role will involve working alongside our other Senior Vet to support the Clinical Director, so an interest in more of the business side would be useful, but more importantly enthusiasm for mentoring other team members is essential.

The role is full time 40 hours per week and is based on 4 days a week plus 2 in 5 Saturday mornings, no out of hours as we are a Vets Now host practice but we will consider part time applications.
