Experienced First Opinion SA Vet wanted for Independent Client on South Coast

Our client on the South Coast have a vacancy for an experienced first opinion small animal vet to join the team on a permanent basis.

This independent, single branch practice based in Eastleigh, Hampshire have a fantastic, supportive team and are looking for a like minded vet to join them.

The 8 vet team also run their own OOH shifts and are in the process of reorganising their rotas to include 3 weeks of day shifts and one week of covering OOH only a pager basis.

A day time working week is likely to be 4 days, either 9-5pm or 9-7pm, and may include a Saturday, but no OOH.
A night duty week is likely to be in practice at 4pm to catch up on case reporting, consults from 5-7pm and then overnight duty/in patient checking via a pager until the following morning. You would not need to be in the practice overnight unless a case required constant supervision. This OOH service only caters for the teams own clients, and so whilst night working is a little more frequent than it has been in the past, it is by no means every night.

The team are supported by a large nursing team and practice facilities currently include:
Endoscopy, ECG, Ultrasound, Digital x-ray, Orthopeadic equipment and Fully equipped dental suite.

This is an exciting time to join this independent practice who are in the process of expanding their premises to accommodate their expanding client base and services they want to be able to offer.
