Full Time Experienced Small Animal Vet - Stockport


Julie Powell
Our client based in Stockport is looking for a full-time small animal Vet to join their team.

The clinic first opened its doors in 1966 originally as a mixed practice but changed to 100% small animal clinic in 1997. They have 3 RCVS accredited small animal practices within the local area. Each site is furnished to a high specification so that high standards of care are uniform across all three sites. All three sites are just a short distance from the centre of Manchester and alternatively close to the beautiful Peak District National Park, giving you the best of both worlds.

There is a fantastic working environment which is credit to the wonderful friendly team, which is made up of 6 Veterinary Surgeons, 3 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 1 Student Veterinary Nurse, 2 Receptionists, 1 Veterinary Care Assistant and 3 support staff. There is a varied caseload which includes routine, preventative and some emergency and critical care. This is a predominantly first opinion practice who encourage their Veterinary Surgeons to follow up on their areas of interest and expertise. The team pride themselves on providing excellent inpatient and client care and case continuity is important to them as it builds a great rapport with wonderful clients.

The clinic is looking for two Veterinary Surgeons, one to work on a full time permanent basis and another for a full time 6-month fixed contract. The roles will be for 39 hours a week over 4 days. Shift times are 8.30am-6pm or 9am-6.30pm with a maximum of 2 in 5 Saturdays 8.30am-4pm. There are no Sundays, no out of hours to cover and no bank holiday.

The ideal candidate will have previous experience and will easily integrate into the team. The client is looking for applicants with well-developed communication skills and strong time management, who are capable in case management, and confident in their diagnostic and surgical abilities.
