Full Time Small Animal Vet - near Weston Super Mare

Our client has a well-established 3 vet, RCVS accredited small animal practice in Weston-super-Mare. As well as the extensive beach there is beautiful countryside nearby.

The practice is well-equipped with digital x-ray, ultrasound, ECG in converted Victorian property. The practice has excellent support staff and nurses including 3 RVN’s, 1 student VN and 1 very experienced ANA. They aim to give the best service they can to their clients at a reasonable cost and the practice has a real family feel.

This is a full-time position working a 4 day week with 1:3 Saturday mornings. There are no OOH/on call with this role, so a chance to have a good work/life balance. Following through of cases is encouraged - as is CPD. There would also be a real chance to explore a particular veterinary interest if you have one. A standard weekday has consults for one vet for the first half of morning before joining other vet who has been doing surgery. There are afternoon and evening consultations (14:00-15:00 and 16:30-18:30). Saturday mornings are 08.30 to 13:00, and there are two support staff.

Ideally you will be a vet (MRCVS) with experience. Saturday mornings are sole charge and there will be occasions in the week when you are the only vet, but generally there will be at least two vets each day, giving opportunity to discuss cases and share expertise. Although the client like each vet to follow through their cases, this chance to share can be invaluable. The role could feasibly be a job share for two people, although this would not be the preferred option.
