Due to a caseload increase, and expansion into a newly refurbished, purpose-built hospital, Abington Park Veterinary Referrals is looking for a clinician to join the established Medical Team.
The ideal candidate will have completed a CertAVP (or equivalent), passed their synoptic examination in Small Animal Medicine, and be eligible for, or hold, an Advanced Practitioner status.
Previous experience in a referral environment and caseload is desirable, but not essential. Experience in abdominal ultrasonography with biopsy and FNA under US guidance is also preferable.
The workload will involve a mixture of first opinion and referral initially, with a view to transition into full-time referral work once the caseload is built. The role is envisaged as full time, but part time hours may be considered for the right candidate. This position does not involve any out of hours (we have a dedicated, on site night team) or weekend working, but telephone support to primary care clinicians looking after the hospitalized referral patients may be requested during weekends.
The package for the successful candidate will include:
• Salary up to £60k (pro rata if part-time) dependent on experience, plus bonus scheme
• Relocation allowance if required
• CPD allowance and ongoing training
• Private Healthcare
• Fully covered RCVS membership
• VDS Membership
• Minimum 28 days’ holiday (pro rata if part time)
• Pension scheme
• Childcare vouchers
• Colleague discount – 50% off professional veterinary fees
• Cycle to work scheme
• My Benefits – discount off leading brands e.g. Tesco, Currys PC World, Apple Stock
• Happy Birthday! An extra day off to celebrate your birthday
• Gifts for birth/adoption and wedding/civil partnerships
