Our client in Liverpool has a veterinary surgeon vacancy for a vet with around 3 years or more experience to join them in them as Lead Vet in this 2 vet.  For the right candidate with the right ambition, there is a very simple route to partnership with a guaranteed exit plan at whatever stage a vet is at in their career.  Partnership is of course optional.

To apply for this veterinary surgeon vacancy in the Liverpool area, candidates should be happily carrying out most routine soft tissue surgeries and working up their own medical cases.  On top of the clinical aspects of the role, candidates should be able to demonstrate their understanding of leadership and how they would lead and motivate the team.

The practice is a well equipped first opinion practice with an excellent local reputation, often receiving 5* reviews on Google.

The rota for this role is 39 hour week with a 4 day week, working 1/6 weekends.  There are no out of hours with this role other than 2 weeks being second on call at the sister hospital.  However, this is very rarely required.
