Are you a vet who wants to learn and develop your skills in a supportive caring environment?

If so our progressive 12 vet INDEPENDENT RCVS accredited veterinary hospital has a full time position available.

We have a friendly close knit team of vets with many years of experience between them. Several hold post graduate certificates (surgery, medicine, ophthalmology, dermatology and CertAVP) and we have Advanced Practitioners in Medicine and Surgery. Currently, there are 2 vets enrolled on certificates (ophthalmology and medicine). We also offer expertise in behaviour. The hospital sees a very wide range of cases and vets are able to perform a high standard of workup and treatment, with support and full clinical freedom. We have a superb, dedicated, caring nursing team and wonderful, helpful admin staff. Our focus is very much on achieving successful clinical outcomes for our clients rather than hitting ​financial targets.

We know that starting a new job can be challenging, so you will have a full day induction and be allocated to a buddy vet to provide assistance to get you going. We also have an active clinical Whatsapp group for vets to join and support each other. Frequent in-house lunch and learn style CPD is organised to complement external CPD courses. All vets have blocked off breaks on the diary during consulting times and for lunch-time, as well as allocated admin time. We have a lovely comfy large staff room with sofas for relaxing in and chatting with colleagues. We want you to enjoy your day!

The hospital is very well equipped with ASIF, mono/bipolar cautery, multi-parameter anaesthetic monitors with capnography, digital x-ray, rigid and flexible video-endoscopy, doppler ultrasound, 24 hour in-house laboratory, tonometry, operating microscope and slit lamp. We also have a fully equipped dental suite with a high speed dental drill, dental x-ray and loupes. We have onsite hydrotherapy and laser therapy. If there is something you want or need and we don’t have, all you need to do is ask!
