Julie Powell
Our client is a thriving, progressive small animal practice who are looking for an additional Exotic Vet to join their team near Sheffield.

There is a large and varied case load of both medical and surgical cases and duties are split between consulting, operating, work ups, inpatient care and out of hours duties. The client base is split between reptiles, avian and small furries in addition to small animals. They also look after two local wildlife parks. Sole charge will be required during out of hours. The practice run 30 minute initial exotic consults and 15-minute follow-ups as standard to enable them to provide an excellent service to clients and provide an exceptional standard of care to patients. Postgraduate studies in all areas are encouraged and supported.

The practices are fully kitted-out at both sites with all the usual toys plus laparoscopic surgical kit and CO2 laser. They treat both small animals and exotic species (first opinion and referrals) and are lucky enough to have The Peaks on the doorstep, a great place to explore during your time off.

There is a team of 9 Vets, they are supported by 10 RVNs and the client care team. The clients are at the forefront of what they do and encourage a bond built on mutual trust and respect.

The ideal candidate would be an Exotic Certificate holding RCVS registered Veterinary Surgeon, who wants to develop and build upon their skills, to join our 3 other Exotic Certified Vets. An additional interest in small animal medicine would be actively encouraged. (Applications from those completing an Exotic Certificate would also be considered). The team enjoy a collaborative approach to cases, so you should be happy to take part in clinical case discussions. However, you must be capable of working independently too. Positive energy and exceptional communication skills are essential. This is a full time position for 4 days per week, weekends on a 1:6 rota and out of hours until 10pm, will be paid as a bonus.
