Weekend Veterinary Surgeon

Job Description

About Us

We are one of the largest providers of veterinary care locally, and have opened three new practices in the last year, continuing our growth. Our principal site is on Pride Park, Derby, where we provide first opinion treatments plus referral services for own clients and other practices. We have our own dedicated night team. We have 11 community practices who provide quality care, with well-equipped on-site facilities and lots of returning customers who want that friendly team feel. This role will support all sites, taking your skills to different locations when needed.

The Role

This is a great role for someone looking for a good work/life balance. You will be working Saturday and Sunday, alternative weekends, from 8am – 6pm, when our dedicated night team take over. The role will focus on providing excellent inpatient care, and emergency admits, to ensure our top-quality care is not compromised. We also take in cases from our own and other local practices. Client facing skills are integral for this 1st Opinion Vet position. We have a regular returning customer base so naturally having the skills to build long term relationships is an asset. You will expand your knowledge and skills by working closely with other members of the first opinion and referral teams.

Applicant Requirements

You will be experienced in small animal work (qualified Vet), have great client communication skills and have the ability to make decisions, prioritise and delegate. Commitment to continuous development, previous emergency experience and previous hospital environment experience is required.

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.
