Locum Equine Surgeon commencing January 2017

Oakham Veterinary Hospital, in conjunction with the University of Nottingham School of Veterinary Medicine, is seeking an experienced and talented locum equine surgeon from January 2017.

With state-of-the-art facilities and expert knowledge, the hospital offers a large and varied referral caseload ranging from leisure to professional sport horses, where your surgery skills will be used extensively. Our priority is to provide a seamless and professional surgical service to our clients and referring vets.

You will have access to clinical expertise from the University of Nottingham Vet School, as part of the collaborative teaching and research relationship. There will be an element of surgical teaching in the hospital to final year vet students.

The role carries a 1:3 OOH rota; you will be supported by a full hospital team during on-call duty. On-site accommodation can be provided if required. This is a locum position on an open-ended basis whilst recruitment for a permanent equine surgeon is on-going. There is the possibility that this role could become permanent for the 'right' applicant. Whilst a full time surgeon is preferable, part time working hours will also be considered.

Candidates should possess strong equine surgical experience and a primary veterinary degree that can be registered with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.
