We also offer relocation allowances should you move more than 40 miles from your current home address. 

We can also support Certificates of Sponsorship for a Tier 2 (General) Visa if you meet the criteria and are eligible to register as a veterinary surgeon with the RCVS upon arrival in the UK.

Skills and experience:

The ideal candidate will have a minimum of 1-2 years’ UK small animal practice (or UK equivalent) experience and be confident in their recommendations.

We collaborate between all the branches so you are supported whether sole charge or in one of the larger branches.

You must be pet and client-centric and have excellent communication skills, competent in spays and castrates.


Our St. Runwalds practice has a very established staff and clientele, an experienced Lead Vet, and a team of nurses, complemented by an equally experienced reception team.

The practice is equipped with all the tools needed and you will have the support of the entire region, including our 24/7 Southend hospital.

The hospital has a CT scan on-site, a dedicated ultrasonographer, and night teams, ensuring continuity of care for all inpatients. We also have an ambulance service in the region, to ensure smooth and timely transfer of all patients requiring hospitalization at the main hospital, though the OOH cover will still be local.  

Please get in touch if you don't want to miss this amazing opportunity!
