Our client’s Veterinary Hospital is located in an historic market town on the outskirts of Oxford. They are now looking for a Full or Part Time Small Animal Vet to join the team.

The practice is surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the Chiltern Hills and there are excellent transport links to London and Oxford. The area has excellent schooling and great for outdoor pursuits. 

The hospital provides excellent facilities, including dental x-ray, in-house laboratory, endoscopy, ultrasound, digital x-ray, separate dog and cat and isolation wards to name a few. They are staffed by a friendly, forward thinking, and supportive team of Vets, Nurses, and support staff.
There is a varied, challenging and rewarding caseload for an experienced Vet and support from the rest of the Vet team for someone less so.  There are 8 Vets (6 FTE), 8 RVNs, 3 SVNs and 3 VCAs as well as a fabulous reception team. The Vets are all team players and delight in helping each other with cases. There are Vet and Nurse certificate holders (including medical and dental certificate holders) and they would support someone who wishes to gain additional qualifications. They are involved in supporting and sponsoring local charity events and are currently planning their fund-raising activity for this year.

The role involves both consulting with clients and their pets and operating in the surgical theatre. Vets are encouraged to work up their cases to a high level. Finish times can vary between 5pm-7pm for full time hours and one Vet and one RVN are on hospital in patient care overnight. The full time Vets work a four day week which allows time to balance the interests of clinical work with study, outdoor pursuits or relaxation. The practice is currently open on Saturdays 0830-1300 on a 1 in 5 rota. You will be confident both consulting and operating and very much a team player. Due to the hospital status and varied case load, they would support someone with specialist interests. In addition to your excellent clinical and communication skills, you will need to be a people oriented person, who is willing to support and guide your colleagues.
