Veterinary Surgeon, Hamilton Vets4Pets, South Lanarkshire

Are you looking for a supportive environment where you are encouraged to explore your interests?

If so, Hamilton Vets4Pets have the perfect opportunity for you.

  • Salary up to £50K (negotiable for certificate holder and DOE)
  • Varied and interesting caseload providing a great opportunity to progress your skills or a specific interest
  • Supportive and experienced clinical team providing an excellent learning environment

Our team is led by practice owner and veterinary surgeon, Julie, and is made up of 7 Vets, 6 Nurses (including 1 SVN), a Practice Manager and 4 Client Care Advisors.  We have a wealth of experience in our vet team and have one team member just starting an imaging certificate. 

Since opening in 2017 and we have grown into a thriving practice with a loyal client base resulting in a wide variety of cases coming through to us.   In addition, we welcome a visiting orthopaedic surgeon where needed so whatever your clinical interest, or if you want to start or continue a certificate, we can support this.

In practice we run standard 15-minute consults, which are extended to 30 minutes for those more complicated cases, and we also schedule in regular slots to enable you to catch up and do paperwork.  We finish consults early to make sure our team can leave on time and if you don’t, we offer paid overtime.  

We utilise the skills of our nursing team, which includes a certificate holder, who undertake clinics and schedule 3 procedures helping to relieve the pressure on our Vets so they can focus on other aspects of the role. 

We hold clinical meetings twice weekly giving opportunity to discuss cases and ensure we are working the best way possible for ourselves and our patients.

We are open to both full and part time candidates working between 25-40 hours per week, with 1 in 4 weekends, of which the Sunday would be sole charge.  When working sole charge there will always be support available at the end of the phone and we have subscription to VetCT radiography support.

 A full-time position involves working a 4-day week, with a fixed day off and a long weekend (Friday off) after your weekend working.  While we can accommodate a consult biased role, you maybe required to do surgery at the weekend so will need to feel confident with this.  No OOH’s or on call is required. 

Hamilton Vets4Pets is located on the outskirts of the town on Hamilton Palace Retail Park, just off the M74, making it well situated for anyone wishing to commute from other locations. Hamilton itself is under 30 minutes from Glasgow City Centre and under an hour from Glasgow and Edinburgh airports.

As well as providing in house support to pursue your interests, we offer an excellent benefits package.  This includes, but is not limited to:

  •  5.6 weeks holiday
  • Paid memberships (RCVS, BVA, VDS)
  • Funded CPD and Certificates
  • 20% discount at Vets4Pets, Pets at Home and the Groom Room
