Veterinary Surgeon

Job Description

The Role

We are looking for a full time Veterinary Surgeon to complement our dedicated team of vets, nurses and receptionists. A keen interest, experience or certificate in small animal surgery would be advantageous. There is an equally shared rota Monday to Friday with 2 in 7 Saturday mornings and no bank holiday or emergency OOH work as this is provided by Vets Now. You will have the opportunity to work up your own cases with the help and support of the team if needed.

About Us

We are a friendly team focused on delivering the best possible patient and client care. We have received additional outstanding awards in the RCVS practice standards scheme in both Client Care and Patient Consultation Service. We are a long-established small animal practice on the Nottingham/Derbyshire border, with great access to the countryside and surrounding area.

You would be joining an experienced team of 7 other veterinary surgeons, 8 RVNs, 1 SVN, a dedicated team of 7 receptionists and an animal care assistant. We are a busy well-equipped practice with an excellent array of equipment available for you to use and have certificate holders in Cardiology and Ophthalmology.

We are entering an exciting period of growth and expansion at the practice with increased facilities coming in the near future. The ideal candidate would have the opportunity to help develop and shape orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery at the practice, progressing to referral work as you and the practice continues to grow. We pride ourselves on having a friendly team and when Covid-19 rules allow we will often go out together as a practice to socialise.

Applicant Requirements

We are ideally looking for a Veterinary Surgeon who will take a keen and active role in the practice, who is confident with surgical and medical cases but is looking to further develop their skills and interests. The ideal candidate would have a certificate in small animal surgery or experience in soft tissue and orthopaedic procedures including fracture and cruciate repairs. We would look to support and encourage the right candidate to further develop their surgical skills and progression to a certificate level.
