Full Time Small Animal Vet


Steph Ward
This is a fantastic new opportunity at an Independent practice with 3 sites in the Southampton area.

They are looking to recruit an experienced Small Animal vet to assist and compliment strengths already within the team. An interest in medicine / imaging or ophthalmology would be beneficial. Certificate study is well supported, and holders recognised. Flexible working patterns can be accommodated.

They have a large Small Animal Hospital with two branch surgeries and as a mixed practice they have been providing high quality veterinary care to the local area for 95 years. A team of 12 SA vets plus 18 VNs provide a supportive family atmosphere with a good varied case load.

They have an in house Ophthalmology referral service and visiting Orthopaedic and Exotics consultants. CPD is actively encouraged and funded.

The position does require Out of Hours cover as part of the teams commitment to their loyal clients and there is 24/7 on-site VN support. To give the greatest flexibility to the team the OOHs weeknight / weekend rota is shared between 8-10 vets in different combinations, and so no more than 1:8 and with generous time off in lieu of OOHs work.
