Julie Powell
Our client is a well-established small animal practice in Somerset, with our main premises in Taunton and a smaller branch nearby. They are now looking for a full or part time Veterinary Surgeon to join them.

The practice is fully equipped for small animal first opinion work, and they are constantly improving and upgrading the clinical facilities to provide the highest standard of care for patients. Taunton is a thriving town within easy reach of the coast, as well as Exmoor and the Quantocks, whilst also being conveniently placed for access to the M5 and nearby cities of Exeter and Bristol.

With an emphasis on integrity, communication, and kindness, the dedicated team of six vets, five RVN's, and twelve support staff all work closely together to provide exemplary care for patients and clients. As a team, they believe in actively supporting and encouraging each other to build confidence, develop skills, and pursue interests in a calm and professional environment.

They are looking for a dedicated Veterinary Surgeon to join the friendly and supportive team. You will share all aspects of general practice including surgery, clinical investigation, diagnostics, consultations, and out of hours duties on a rota basis. The current full-time surgeons work four weekdays, with one weeknight on call each week, as well as 1:4 weekends on call (including Saturday morning consultations). The client is very willing to consider flexible working patterns for part-time candidates.
