Veterinary Surgeon - Flexible hours in a tight-knit team
South Shields Quay’s Vets4Pets are looking for a small animal vet to join our friendly, experienced team whose ethos is one of supporting each other, being flexible to individuals needs and making work-life balance a priority.
Here’s what one of our newest team members has to say about joining our amazing team:
I cannot recommend Vets4Pets South Shields Quays enough as a place to work. From my initial interview to starting on day one, I was made to feel completely at home and part of the team. It was clear from talking with the area relationship manager for the North that staff welfare was a priority, but to see this translate into practice was really refreshing. If you’re looking for a forward-thinking practice with a small, tight-knit team where staff welfare is a priority then this is the place to go. Eilidh, Veterinary Surgeon
We have been established 6 years and are lucky to have lots of experience in both our veterinary and nursing teams. As a growing practice we wish to develop our offering to our clients meaning this role is a great opportunity for a vet to develop their clinical interests while making their career work around them and their individual commitments.
Our enthusiastic, friendly team consists of 2 vets, 3 RVNs, 1 VCA, our practice manager Vikki and 3 client care assistants. In addition, we are supported by the wider vets4pets network and have two referral centres a short drive away. We hold regular clinical meetings to ensure we are always providing the best for our patients and offer 15 minutes appointments which are extended where appropriate. We also provide protected admin time and you will not need to work any OOH. We are open Monday to Friday, 9-7pm, Saturday 9-12pm and currently no trading on Sundays.
With an open-minded approach to veterinary practice and an emphasis on well-being we are open to discussion regarding working patterns. Whether you are looking for full time, part time or specific hours or perhaps have a bias towards consults or surgery- come and chat with us.
Our newly refurbished practice is based in south shields, the finishing point of the famous Great North Run and central Newcastle is easily accessible. This provides excellent transport links and all the amenities you could wish for. In addition, in less than an hour’s drive you can be enjoying the beautiful hills or coastline of Northumberland.
In addition to a salary of £40-55K (negotiable DOE) we offer the excellent benefits you would expect from a major veterinary employer, including fully funded CPD with travel and accommodation included, certificates paid and encouraged, your birthday off, increasing annual leave with each year of service, AXA private health insurance and many more, this is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced vet to join a great team in a role that can be tailored to them.
