Calling all New Graduate Vets!

Here at Seymour Vets we are a social and supportive team that strive to put the excellence into customer service while keeping our team motivated and de-stressed. We are based in the Southwest, 20 minutes from the beach and moors with easy access to Exeter and Plymouth. You will enjoy working at our modern and spacious Hospital while also supporting our branch site at Paignton.

Within the practice we are lucky enough to have our own up to date Veterinary facilities, including an on-site CT scanner, dedicated dental suite with DR dental x-ray, ultrasound, endoscopy, in-house laboratory and 4 consult rooms. As we cover South Hams, Torbay and the South Devon region and we are a dedicated small animal hospital, we see a variety of cases involving treating cats, dogs, small furries and exotic pets. We take pride in the service we offer and hold regular journal clubs and clinical governance meetings as well as team days!

As our New Graduate Vet you will be automatically enrolled onto our New Graduate Programme starting from August 2021.

This is what some of our vets on the CVS Graduate Programme say:

“Throughout my first year as a new graduate on the CVS Graduate Scheme I have felt very supported both in my practice and externally through being a part of CVS. The practical CPD we get to do is definitely my favourite part as it also provides an opportunity to network with other fellow graduates while covering some essential topics for first opinion practice. I would highly recommend the programme to any new graduate as it provides a supported and structured start into your veterinary career.”

“My favourite part of working as a new graduate vet for CVS are the opportunities offered by such a large cooperation. The experience and possibilities are great when you are trying to find your own path according to your passion. The CPD offered is also invaluable and there is a great support network.”
