An opportunity has arisen for a dynamic and experienced vet to join the team and work within our Winterton branch, closely linked to the RCVS accredited Swanland 24 hour hospital. 

Our Veterinary Surgeons are at the front line of delivering exceptional care and play an integral part of each one of our sites. From routine health checks to advanced surgeries, you’ll work directly with clients and their pets to offer care that’s bespoke to them. Sole charge work will form the majority of this role so confidence and sound clinical judgement are a necessity but you will have the support of the team at the hospital and the seven other branch practices.

In return we will provide an excellent career progression and work life balance, fantastic packages and the chance to be involved in cases using state-of-the-art technology. This is an excellent opportunity for someone wishing to take ownership, really make a practice their own and drive a practice to make it the heart of the community.
