Full Time Senior Vet for a branch practice near Leeds


Julie Powell
Our client has a group of 6 Small Animal Practices based in West Yorkshire, who are now looking for a Full Time Senior Vet to join them.

They are a first opinion small animal practice with their own hospital facilities and dedicated night service. The group is close to Leeds for those who like the city life and handy for the Yorkshire Dales if you prefer the outdoors. Leeds Bradford International Airport is also on the doorstep.

There are 22 vets and 7 Veterinary Nurses and have certificate holders in ECC, surgery and ophthalmology. The experienced team means that they can deal with surgical and medical cases in house meaning that you can follow your own cases.

They now have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon to be involved in the running of a busy first opinion branch surgery. The successful candidate will be involved in supporting new graduates, supervising nurse clinics and overseeing the day to day organisation of the branch. Working five days a week plus 1 in 5 Saturday mornings, one full weekend in five with time off in lieu, 3 x 8.30 - 6.00 and 2 x 8.30 - 5.00 in an average week but no out of hours. The preferred candidate will be an experienced small animal vet who is happy with all aspects of first opinion small animal work. It is essential that they have excellent leadership skills and the ability to motivate a team. They must be happy with sole charge work and be able to support less experienced veterinary surgeons.
