Veterinary Surgeon

Job Description

The Role

Are you looking to start to expand your knowledge in management without having to leave the animals behind? Do you enjoy being a GP vet, but are getting bogged down in the long hours? We can help! If you are looking for a position where you can demonstrate and utilise your knowledge and skills whilst still getting ample time to yourself then we might be the people for you. No OOH duties, and a culture actively directed towards avoiding burnout. If you feel you are able to help to support a small team to develop the branch then we would be excited to talk to you. Our friendly and approachable management team will be delighted to chat and we are open to negotiations about terms.

About Us

Budget Vets has been under new management for 4.5 years and we have expanded our expertise in that time.

We value and support our teams and have two Clinical Directors who are on hand to help you through a challenging case or a busy day, offering as much or as little support as needed.

Applicant Requirements
