Lead Vet Vacancy, Kent. Up to £75k Per Year, Plus Benefits


Richard Powell
Our client in Kent would like to recruit an experienced veterinary to join them as Lead Vet. For vets who are interested in partnership with the professional, personal and financial benefits that come with business ownership, this is possible here. It is however, not an essential requirement.

Vets need to be comfortable with routine surgical procedures and medical workups. Ideally they would also be looking to start or complete existing studies towards a certificate. If vets are tied to a learning agreement, our client will look to buy that out, subject to it being replaced by another agreement.

The practice is very well equipped first opinion practice and the previous partner did regularly carry our orthopaedic procedures so they are equipped for some orthopaedic work too. They have digital X-ray, ultrasound, ECG laparoscopic kit.

The practice employs 3 vets (including this vacancies so sole charge is limited. They work a 4 day week with 1:3 Saturdays.

The package for this role includes a salary of up to 75k with a minimum of 55k. In addition they offer a great CPD package with days off to study, 5 weeks holiday plus bank holidays, professional fee paid.

Our client will offer support with aspects of this role that candidates may be unfamiliar with. However, as being part of a larger group, many aspects of "Lead Vet" responsibilities are handled centrally allowing the Lead vet here to focus on patient care and driving the practice forward.
