Published: 27 days ago
Our client has a single site practice situated in beautiful Hereford, a small market city, surrounded by lovely countryside and on the doorstep of the Wye Valley. They are now looking for a full or part time small animal vet to join them.

The team consists of 6 vets, 8 RVNs, 2 SVNs, 1 ANA, as well as a wonderful support team.  The team takes pride in their collaborative and supportive approach to cases and always strives to give the best possible care they can to patients and clients, while looking out for each other. They are very supportive of advanced learning programmes such as certificates, or just helping to develop colleagues by support in house with medical or surgical cases. Two of the vets are currently undertaking certificates, one in surgery, another in oncology. As a practice, they like to get involved in local events, such as judging the local dog show, giving talks at local schools, running stalls at events or even just litter-picking in a nearby park.  The clinic has its own in-house laboratory, digital x-ray, multi-parameter anaesthetic monitoring equipment, ultrasound, ECG, doppler blood pressure machine and K-laser. They have regular cardiology clinics, undertaken by a visiting cardiologist and the orthopaedic surgeries are performed by a visiting orthopaedic surgeon.

This is a permanent position for someone looking for full or part time hours. You will work closely alongside the rest of the team, providing clinical support and guidance where needed, as well as managing your own cases. The role will primarily involve clinical work; however, there is scope for some managerial involvement should you be interested in this.

You will be required to work 2-3 days a week for the part time position or the full time role involves working 4 days and having a set day off in the week. The usual day length is 8 am to 7 pm, however, there is flexibility in these hours. You will be involved in a weekend rota, working no more than 1:5 weekends (8:30 am to 5 pm on Saturday and availability for inpatients on Sunday). There will be 2-3 additional Saturday mornings per year required, 9 am to 1 pm but no out-of-hours work is involved in this role.

They are looking for an experienced and confident vet who is willing to support and teach their colleagues and to assist in the development of their clinical skills. An ability to stay calm in potentially difficult situations and to communicate clearly with others is important, as is an understanding of the importance of confidentiality. You must be able to work well within a team and have the confidence to lead that team in its clinical development, whilst working closely with the senior management team.

Salary is up to £65k pa DOE and there is a relocation allowance of up to £5k if required.
