Experienced SA Vet with Surgical bias required for Branch Practice in Buckinghamshire

Our client is a first opinion small animal practice, with 4 branches across Buckinghamshire, and looking for a surgically minded experienced vet.

Across the team they have 14 vets, 22 nurses (including 4 student nurses), 12 receptionists and a full admin team. The vets are either engaged in or have achieved certificates such as oncology, ophthalmology, physiotherapy, dentistry, anaesthesia and critical care, laparoscopy, endoscopy, orthopaedics, small animal medicine, feline medicine, and dermatology. They also have members of the team with special interest in pet bereavement, animal behaviour and dog training and of course wellbeing.

The team are looking for a surgically biased vet to join the senior veterinary surgeon and work a 4 day week with a weekend rota included.
They do almost all of their own orthopaedics and soft tissue surgery and so are looking for someone who either has a surgery certificate or is wanting to do one (fully funded by us).

You must also be happy to participate in daily consults and vaccinations (and maybe even the odd dental), however they team do aim to give their surgeons as much time in theatre as possible, with dedicated surgery mornings and time to spend with the senior surgeon learning new procedures.

The ideal candidate would need to be friendly, forward thinking, enthusiastic about practicing a high standard of patient and customer care. The most essential skill the team require is the ability to fit in with the friendly team.

This will be a full time position but could be worked over 4 days per week, the client are happy to discuss with successful candidates.
