Location Sidcup
Discipline: Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon
Contact name: Julie Powell

Job ref: 7495
Published: about 1 month ago
Our client based near Sidcup, within the M25, are in need of an experienced, capable and confident GP Veterinary Surgeon to join their fantastic team of hospital clinicians.

If you want to work in a dynamic environment in which no two days are the same, this could be the ideal place for you.  All the vets thrive on the diverse caseload and welcome the fact that they refer very few cases.  They particularly value the support colleagues provide, but also prefer to manage their own cases, in the way they see fit. 

The successful candidate will have a number of years working in UK practice behind them, and will be comfortable working in a busy and diverse environment.  You will work alongside a number of Certificate holders (Imaging, Medicine, Surgery, Dermatology, Opthalmology, Exotics and Dentistry) and will have plenty of opportunity to develop your skills and knowledge – both formally through CPD and informally through case collaboration.

The team of vets work a 40 hour week across 4 days, inclusive of 1:4 weekends and they provide second on call cover for occasional nights. They are supported by a large team of qualified and student nurses, as well as Clinical Support Services personnel.

The practice has its own separate cat, dog and exotics wards, each encompassing their own operating theatres, as well as dedicated dental suites, ultrasound facilities, endoscopy and of course x-ray. There is also an extensive lab, staffed by bio-medical professionals experienced in supporting the vet team. 

The ideal candidate will have a medical bias but not be afraid of surgery, and you will be particularly interested in diagnostic imaging and medical work-ups. Remaining calm in the face of emergencies and articulate in the face of complex cases, will be important skills, along with the ability to work in harmony with a large team.  You will also be happy to nurture less experienced colleagues and will welcome their need for support and oversight.  Salary is up £60k pa and there is a relocation allowance available if required.
