Exceptional career opportunities for exceptional vets
Experienced small animal vet
You will be joining a team committed to delivering a first-class veterinary service, and a practice where you will be given the clinical freedom to follow and work-up cases to a high standard. Our friendly client base allows us to provide gold-standard first opinion preventative programmes through to advanced diagnostics and treatment, investigating clinical problems thoroughly and expertly, at our purpose built, single-site hospital.
Supported by a minimum 4 years' small animal experience, you will make a positive impact from day one, and will be keen to contribute to our continued growth. Our team members include certificate holders in cardiology, surgery and internal medicine, who work alongside experienced and fully-qualified nurses. Our association with UoNVS allows support from Diplomats and visiting specialists in their field.
Graduate clinician programme
Our 2 year GC programme provides you with the opportunity to get your career off to a flying start through in-practice support, mentoring and clinical case-loads.
With a structured clinical & non-clinical development programme which is designed around your individual needs and interests, in conjunction with the UoNVS and other external partners, you will gain the knowledge, confidence and experience you were hoping for, from your first job. You will be able to take responsibility for your own 1st opinion caseload, whilst having the confidence of an experienced team to support you, including a designated senior vet as a mentor.
For both roles we offer wide and varied surgical and medical caseloads which are supported by laproscopy & endoscopy equipment, digital radiography and ultrasound facilities with CT scanning facilities due to be launched shortly. CPD is encouraged and provided in order to maintain our delivery of the most up-to-date animal care, within a practice which fully encourages and supports your development.
Competitive salary and benefits packages are offered. For an informal discussion about either role please contact either Catriona Laird (SA Partner), 07989 012786 or Chris Booth (SA Partner), 07811 364597.
