  • Hours Full-time
  • Contract Permanent
  • VET01528
  • Closing date 13th Jul 2022

We have lots of great roles for those who share our values

About us:

We are looking for a well-rounded Veterinary Surgeon to join our large team across our Leominster and Ludlow branches.

You will have the opportunity to work alongside 5 other experienced vets and a team of 9 nurses and 8 reception/admin staff. There may be some sole charge at our Ludlow branch, but you will be well supported by the team at Leominster as well as the regional team.

Although we would ideally be looking for a full-time candidate, we can also offer flexibility with this role and are open to candidates who want to work part-time for the right fit. This role does include being involved in a fair share of the on-call rota, and a Saturday on a 1 in 6 basis. Our nurses take the OOH phones and senior vets provide full back-up to the on-call vets, together with an on-call nurse.

We are a busy, friendly practice with a varied caseload and all vets are actively encouraged to pursue their chosen area of interest with clinical freedom. The candidate ideally would be an experienced vet; however, recent graduates or new graduates are encouraged to apply. We are extremely supportive of any vets who also want to complete certificates and we have onboard our team certificate holders in SA medicine and radiography.

The role:

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a full-time Veterinary Surgeon to join our friendly and loyal team in Leominster and Ludlow

You must be an experienced vet with a client-oriented approach and excellent communication skills, work to a very high standard both medically and surgically and have the drive and ambition to help develop this practice further. The ideal candidate will have at least 3-5 years' UK small animal practice (or UK equivalent) experience. This role requires a motivated vet to work confidently in a multi-vet environment with the ability to make a sound clinical judgment. Strong management and mentor skills are essential as you will play a crucial part within the team.

Career progression is actively promoted, and partnership opportunities are available for the right candidate. This is a great opportunity to take the next step in your career.

This role is a 4-day week giving you excellent work/life balance with 1:6 full weekends.
