Julie Powell
Our client is looking for an enthusiastic professional Clinical Lead Vet to join them with a Farm Animal bias to continue to expand the services they offer in the Bodmin area.

The client has an experienced and knowledgeable team of vets serving local Bodmin area. All of the farm vets are dedicated to farm livestock and take a proactive and forward thinking approach to veterinary work. This is a mixed team including small, farm and equine work. Some of the vets carry out solely farm work, others purely equine with a range in between and are therefore able to offer flexibility on work, but can be 100% farm role. There is a fantastic team of 8 vets who are proactive and keen to progress. With the size of the team they are able to provide you with a great support network that encourages peers to share their knowledge, best practice advice and also in-house clinical training sessions, allowing development opportunities. There is an opportunity to further develop the dairy side and many other aspects of the business as they continue to grow and keep up to date with technology and practice life.

The team has 2 full time TB testers meaning minimal testing for clinical vets. Regular team meetings and appraisals. The usual equipment provided. Based in Mid-Cornwall giving easy access to all the county can offer making easy access to great beaches, moorland, woods, surfing, Eden etc.

The rota encourages a healthy life-work balance with time off after nights and weekends on call and the current rota is 2:8, so 1 in 4 nights and weekends with 2 vets on call for farm only.

You must be able to work within a team and individually. Good communication skills with vets, office staff and clients are essential. A positive, proactive and flexible attitude is desired. Sense of humour also beneficial.
