Our client is a truly independent 8 vet, 11 nurse (training practice), small animal general practice with Partnership prospects if desirable. Based near Crawley with regular trains to the capital (only 45 mins away) this in an ideal location if you want to live near London.

The practice is very well equipped, forward thinking and allows their staff to have the clinical freedom to provide the very best care and treatment plans tailored to each individual patient & client. There is a friendly, happy working environment with an excellent, supportive team.

This is a full-time position with weekends on a rota. The client provides its own out of hours providing all round care to their patients. Out of hours are currently 1 in 6 rota, with one weekday off per week. The ideal candidate must be happy to work an out of hours rota but should be aware that the client is not an emergency clinic and have a nurse on site to care for in patients and to help the vet on duty. The on call is not 'awake' all night and cover can be at home, if local or the practice can provide onsite accommodation. The vet can sleep and take emergency phone calls, only seeing clients if an emergency. The current vets say that their night duties are quiet, they are rarely called out.

The client offers five weeks holiday per year, plus Bank holidays (or day in lieu). Good salary commensurate with experience plus share of OOH fees. CPD is encouraged & funded and specialisation welcomed.

The client is keen to hear from either UK trained/qualified vets or vets that have at least one year’s full time UK working experience but in an not internship. The candidates must have excellent spoken and written English.
