Our client is a small animal, one site, well equipped practice and has been based in Norfolk since 1993. They are now looking for a full or part time Small Animal vet to join them.

They are a RCVS accredited first-opinion practice, which also takes local referrals in multiple disciplines. The practice is based in a market town with a close-knit community. They are close to the North Norfolk beaches, pinewoods, the Norfolk Broads and equidistant between Norwich and Kings Lynn and just 1.75 hours from central London by train. They are a training practice for veterinary nurses. They aim to provide a high quality, professional, friendly service, and all work together as a team, with clients, all to provide the best care for their pets.  All members of the team are equally important to this process, and they are keen to ensure all staff reach their potential and find their own niche within the practice, thus external referrals are rare. Quality of life and the wellbeing of employees is of paramount importance to enable them to deliver the best service possible. They have a low staff turnover, and are a stable, experienced team in all departments.

Currently they have 6 Veterinary Surgeons, 11 Veterinary Nurses and 2 Veterinary Care Assistants. They also have 5 Receptionists, and 4 Support Staff responsible for administration and management. The two Clinical Directors also take an active role in the management of the practice, having owned the practice prior to joining a larger group. They have 4 certificate holders, between them holding certificates in Small Animal Surgery, Advanced Small Animal Orthopaedics, Emergency Medicine and Surgery, Diagnostic Imaging, Ophthalmology and Small Animal Medicine. They have a diploma holder in Advanced Veterinary Practice Sciences, and 3 RCVS recognised Advanced Practitioners, between them, in Emergency and Critical Care, Small Animal Surgery, Small Animal Medicine and Small Animal Ophthalmology. The candidate will become part of the Veterinary Surgeon and Nursing teams providing veterinary care to clients and their pets day to day in practice and out of hours on call. The Veterinary Nurses take an active role in clinics to support the veterinary surgeons providing holistic care. They also have nurses with certificates in behaviour and physiotherapy.

The day-to-day duties include consultations, diagnostic and surgical procedures, to work within a team of motivated and skilled vets and nurses, and excellent support staff. If you have a particular area of interest this will be encouraged and supported. Normal working days are Monday to Friday 08:30-17:30, this can be flexible within these times, days off are included, and later evening consultations are possible if wanted. They provide their own 'on call' out of hours service to their own clients. On duty times are between 17:30 and 08:30 Monday to Friday, and Weekends from 08:30 Saturday to 08:30 Monday. There are no routine consultations during these times. On duty is either a Saturday or Sunday. Frequency of on call is 1:5/6 Monday-Friday, then 1:7 Saturday and 1:8 Sunday.

The ideal candidate will have previous experience, who is able to work within the team and also be happy to work with a nurse on call. They would like someone who is a motivated GP vet and who wants to provide excellent care within their rural community. They would encourage and support someone to develop their own areas of interests within the practice, to complement our team of dedicated, skilled vets and nurses.

Salary is up to £75k pa DOE and there is a relocation allowance of up to £3 if needed.
