Full Time Veterinary Surgeon required for Independent Practice - Surrey


Steph Ward
Our independent client in Surrey have an opening available for a full time small animal veterinary surgeon at their group of 3 branch practices in Surrey.

The team are ideally looking for an experienced vet with a surgical bias, someone who is confident with a range of surgical procedures and who is happy to work sole charge shifts.
The team can support anyone looking to undertake a certificate in surgery.

As a practice they offer 15 minute appointments as standard and admin time is factored into the rota so that vets can usually leave on time to allow for a good work life balance.
They are also proud to offer their own OOH emergency service to their own clients and so all vets participate in an equally shared rota. This entails no more than one night on call per week, and one weekend on call in six.

Day to day working hours are variable across the week with some 5pm finishes, as well as time off around your on call night with a 2pm start and 12pm finish the next day.
There are also Saturday clinics at some of the smaller branches and so in addition there will eventually be one Saturday in every 12 weeks, 9am-4pm shift (although these are currently on hold).

You will be working with an experienced team of Vets, including six certificate holders, and supported by a team of 10 RVNs.
The team are well equipped and work to a high standard of care, offering orthopaedics, laparoscopy, endoscopy, ultrasonography, acupuncture and laser therapy, as well as their own laboratory and behaviourist. They currently hold an RCVS Tier 2 status and are working towards Tier 3 hospital status - further qualifications and CPD are actively encouraged and funded.

The team are looking for the right candidate to join their friendly team and salary is negotiable and commensurate with experience. They can also provide accommodation if required.
