Equine Veterinary Surgeon

Job Description

The Role

We are looking for an Equine Veterinary Surgeon to provide maternity cover for one of our team on a full or part time basis (2.5-4days per week with an OOH rota equally shared). There may be the possibility of a permanent role becoming available. We are a team of three full-time equine only Veterinary Surgeons (1 certificate holder) within a larger mixed practice. This is a primarily ambulatory role but with purpose built inpatient facilities. Our clients are mostly pleasure horse owners with some competition horse work and we are committed to providing a high-quality personal service to them.

About Us

We are a small friendly team based in the Lanarkshire countryside but close to Glasgow. We have the usual toys – digital radiography system, modern ultrasound, upper respiratory scope and gastroscope, all of which can be used in an ambulatory setting or within the clinic, which has 5 stables, stocks, hard trot-up and hard and soft lunge areas.

Applicant Requirements

Experience is required for this role as you will be required to slot into the place of our assistant who is going off on maternity leave although there will be scope to overlap with her prior to this. Must be confident with all aspects of ambulatory general practice although support is available from certificate holder. Holding or working towards a certificate would be advantageous as would having a specific area of clinical interest. Although this is a temporary position initially, as we are a growing practice, there is very much the possibility of this becoming a permanent position for the right candidate. The assistant you would be replacing is happy to speak to any potential applicants!

As a Disability Confident Employer we are keen to hear from candidates with disabilities and long term health conditions, and would be happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments needed during the recruitment process.
