As the only veterinary practice in this village, you will be looking for a role where you will very quickly become a "a fixture" in the village.

OOH's will be covered by V.E.T.Sin Ystrad Mynach so you will be focusing on great client care during the days. Working hours are really friendly as the practice is only open 9.00 - 6.00 Monday to Friday.

Market leading package with car and accommodation available.

This job has now been filled but you may be interested in:
Our client has two practices in the area and are looking for a Full Time Small Animal Vet to join them. Both sites are purpose-built to run independently and fully equipped to care for patients if they need a workup. There are excellent facilities in both branches, such as in-house blood, CR, ultrasound, and surgical capability, to name but a few. The practices are in a beautiful location - easily commutable from vibrant Cardiff, with the Brecon Beacons to the North and glorious beaches to the South. There are currently 8 vets (2 of these are part-time), 9 Registered Veterinary Nurses + 1 Student Veterinary Nurse, and a growing support team of 9+, with others across reception and additional care assistants. One of the vets is working towards a surgical certificate and they are supporting others in working towards their preferred specialties. They strive to create a positive ethos and give staff a balanced workload. The clinic runs 15-minute consults, with catch up time blocked off during the day and the last consult booked 45 minutes before the end of the day, so there’s a chance to leave early. The ideal candidate will be someone who is easy going, who can fit into the team. The role can be flexible - medical, surgical, imaging or dental biases can be supported. The shift pattern for full-time is 38 hours across 4 days per week on a fixed rota day off per week, with 1:3 Saturdays 9 am-12 pm and time back in lieu. No out of hours work. They are open to partn time applications with the view to work 2/3 days per week. Salary is up to 60,000. Ideally you will have previous experience in a first opinion environment, even if this was short-term or you may need support to get going again. They are also keen to hear from candidates who are more experienced, who are looking to take the next step in their career and develop more specific aspects of their skillset.
