Job Description

The Role

Case continuity is one of our many assets. You will have continuity with patients from; consulting with the client to managing the pet in kennels, carrying out diagnostics and treatment through to discharge and ongoing care. Cases are always managed to a high clinical standard. You will work alongside a team of vet surgeons and registered veterinary nurses to involve usual routine procedures for pet care and maintenance and some non-routine diagnoses.

About Us

Here at Riverside, we provide first opinion treatments with well-equipped on-site facilities and lots of returning customers who want that friendly team feel. We pride ourselves in case continuity with a supportive, passionate, caring, and professional team. Our Vet team are supported by a team of 2 practice registered veterinary nurses. Although we have an organised plan and structure for daily consults and surgeries, events happen, and things change. This is when this team proactively adjust and adapt their workloads to ensure most importantly that emergency cases receive immediate care while our existing customers for that day are not overly inconvenienced by changes.

Applicant Requirements

Excellent communication and client-based skills are integral for this 1st opinion veterinary surgeon position. We have a regular returning customer base so naturally having the skills to build long term relationships is an asset. Required skills and experience include post qualification experience in small animal veterinary work, great client communication skills, the ability to make decisions, prioritise and delegate and commitment to continuous development. You will need to be confident in making decisions, and happy to mix with different teams and build relationships quickly.
