Full or Part Time Small Animal Vet - near Bedford


Julie Powell
Our client is a long-established RCVS accredited Small Animal practice, located in the heart of rural Bedfordshire. They are now looking for a Full Time Vet to join them.

This is a well-equipped hospital with an in-house lab complete with a lab technician, ultrasound, digital X-ray, theatre, laparoscopy, endoscopy and CT scanner. The clinic sees a wide variety of cases so you’d have the freedom to work cases up to a high standard and the support of your colleagues when you wish to share ideas and seek advice. The friendly and welcoming team consists of 9 vets and 16 registered veterinary nurses, alongside a busy reception team and Practice Manager. The vet team hold 7 post-graduate certificates between them with further post-graduate qualifications underway.

They are looking for someone who has experience in General Practice and is confident to manage their own cases, ideally, you will prefer a primarily consulting position. Every day is different, and you will work across both the hospital and nearby small branch practice, so there is plenty of scope to see a wide range of cases. The successful candidate will be experienced, a good team player who is keen to learn and progress, have a good sense of humour and has a real love for animals. Candidates who enjoy consulting rather than operating would be ideally suited as we have multiple surgically-biased vets within the team.
They are looking for someone with great communication skills - both with clients and the rest of the team, who is able to work within a bustling hospital environment.

This position is full/part-time working a 30-40-hour week which can be flexible around your needs. Weekend work is Saturday mornings only, on a 1:3-1:6 rota depending on hours and there are no out of hours expectations.
