Julie Powell

Our client based in the beautiful Isle of Wight are looking for a Small Animal Vet with hours to suit you. The client has a proactive and flexible approach to recruiting new team members and are open to discussing the hours that suit you – whether you’re considering a full-time, part-time, term-time or solely on call contract.

The practice is fully equipped with state-of-the-art equipment which includes a CT scanner, laparoscopic surgery, video endoscopy, new ultrasound in this brand-new purpose-built surgery. The team are supportive and encouragement to persue your interest is encouraged with a generous CPD allowance. The practice prides itself on providing an excellent work/life balance and time off to explore the area.

While you aren’t at work you soon come to realise you are living somewhere quite special. When you are not at work there are regular ferry crossings to the mainland (80 per day) and you have the coastal scenery, sailing, surfing, paddle boarding, golf, horse riding and some beautiful pubs. Some of the best walking and cycling routes the UK has to offer are right on the island. Quality of life and work life balance are second to none.

The on-call rota is shared equally between vets for weekend and weeknight duties, all hours will be considered upon application and the practice is currently working on minimalizing the on call duties. The practice are happy to accommodate specific interests so you can make this role your very own with options to perform more surgery or more consultations, other vets prefer to be out on the road more doing home visits.

Preferably you will have experience as a veterinary surgeon in clinical practice. The client is happy to consider candidates that are happy to work flexibly in a team environment and who are keen to enhance their skillset with additional CPD.
