About the practice:

Every dog and cat in need deserves expert, personalised care and support, and to be loved. When you work for ou client, you understand that better than ever.  We’re a passionate, committed and diverse team of c80 staff and c150 volunteers, here for dogs, cats and communities in the UK, in Afghanistan and in Georgia. We offer expert veterinary care, rescue and rehoming services, programmes in the community and guidance and support to improve the lives of dogs and cats in need.

We have had a community vet clinic on site at our historic North West London shelter since 1925. For nearly 100 years, our London clinic has delivered many tens of thousands of treatments to dogs and cats and supported their owners with low-cost veterinary interventions and clinical advice they wouldn’t otherwise have been able to afford. Since March 2022, we have been proud to provide our preventative veterinary treatments free of charge, and without judgment, to those who are unable to afford it and who have no recourse to another reputable provider.

The Practice:

Dogs and cats in need come through the doors of our shelter and community vet clinic every day. In our modern and well-equipped community vet clinic, including x-ray and dental x-ray machine, ultrasounds, ECG, in-house lab and two surgical suits, we provide a wide range of surgeries and treatments for the Mayhew animals in our care. We also provide a limited range of preventative veterinary care treatments including annual health checks, neutering, vaccinations, parasite control, microchipping, dentals and advice and support. Our clinic is RCVS accredited and we are a training centre for veterinary students at the University of Surrey.

The Team:

Our clinic operates 7-days a week, looking after outpatients in addition to the animals in our care at the shelter; the clinic is open to the public Monday to Saturday. When fully staffed, our clinic team is made up of a Head of Clinic, 3.0 FTE vet surgeons, 1.0 FTE Head RVN, 2-3.0 FTE RVNs and a full time Clinic Receptionist. The Head of Clinic has recently joined the team and comes with a wealth of experience and motivation to drive standards forward. The clinic also benefits from the support of an Animal Carer on rotation most days of an average week.

About you:

We are looking for a qualified vet surgeon, ideally experienced in shelter medicine, but we are also open to an new graduate with a keen interest in the charity sector, who shares our compassion and commitment for animal welfare and who is confident in the basics of surgery, medicine, dentistry and diagnostics. Full time Vet Surgeons work 35 hours a week either 9-5pm or 8-4pm, on a monthly rotation of Monday to Friday and Tuesday to Saturday, and part of an out-of-hours on-call rota for the  animals in our care, in the occasional event of an emergency.
