Job Details

Veterinary Surgeon

  • Luton
  • Full time or Part time

Luton Vets4Pets are looking for a Vet to join their long standing, supportive team and achieve all their career goals.

Mark and our other colleagues at the Luton practice are looking for a Veterinary surgeon to join their team and help them continue to provide the excellent standards of care to all their patients. They have worked hard to develop a nurturing culture that has seen many of its staff not only join and stay with the stand alone practice over 10 years but progress in their careers with examples such as VCA to Head Nurse!

To achieve this the practice has a robust team in place, this is made up of2 Mark the JVP with over 25 years' experience in the industry and 3 other Vets. They are supported by 3 RVNs, 2 SVNs, 3 VCAs, 4 receptionists and a very experienced Customer Care Manager. All our colleagues are passionate about patient care and high standards, and they have great pride in where they work.

Our Veterinary team believe in a no judgement work environment and always conduct ward rounds in mornings to go through all patients care and often have clinical meetings to discuss matters. There are mixed skills within the team with our JVP holding a Surgery Certificate. Here you will be highly encouraged to undertake CPD or certificates that will help you achieve your Veterinary career goals and the care the colleagues can provide.

Luton practice is RCVS accredited and cat friendly and has separate cat and dog wards. It has 4 spacious consult rooms, a theatre, prep, diagnostic room, and fully stocked pharmacy. The practice also benefits from having a new Ultrasound, video endoscope, digital x-ray, full IDEXX in house laboratory, K-Laser blood pressure machine and multiparameter monitor.

The role itself can be considered as full or part time as our colleagues truly believe in creating a real work life balance for all. What you could expect from a typical full-time role in our Luton practice would be 20-minute consults with a 4 day week Monday to Friday, with the excellent addition of an early finish day. The weekend rota is also Saturday 9am to 4pm with a 1: 3 rota. To enhance your work life balance there are no Sundays, no OOH and no Sole charge working! However, if you are looking for part time hours the practice is also very happy to discuss options.

So not only is this practice in a great and very commutable location it offers the right candidate real progression opportunities including partnership / part ownership, so if you are looking for that step this one is not to miss. Other benefits include:

  • Generous salary up to £60k (pro rata and dependent on experience)
  • Annual leave of 28 days including bank holidays increasing after 2 years' service
  • CPD allowance up to Certificate level with 5 days CPD leave
  • Funded Visa Sponsorship
  • No OOH
  • Paid professional memberships (RCVS, VDS, BVA)
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Exclusive company discounts and rewards including up to 20% off at Pets at Home and Vets4Pets

As a key member of the team you will ideally have a good general knowledge of surgery and a strong medical background however we are open to discuss opportunities with people at the beginning of their Vet journey.

This position offers more than your average vacancy with a modern way of thinking and encouragement to shape your own role!

If you would like to hear more about this position please contact and one of our colleague will get back to you within 1 working day.

We want our colleagues to be as diverse as our clients. Our teams are inclusive and celebrate difference so if you meet our role requirements, we'd love to hear from you.
