Our client on the glorious West Sussex coast area have an opportunity for an experienced, first opinion vet to join them in a Lead Vet Capacity.

The practice has recently undergone lots of improvements and modernisation in both equipment and environment.

The successful candidate will lead the nursing team plus one other vet, who are client are currently recruiting for. With a small team like this the role may suit a vet with experience of some mentoring but has perhaps not held the "Lead/Head Vet" title. The role involves of course the delivery of clinical excellence, but also some aspects of practice and business management that may be a new skill. This will be supported by the regional team and they will also absorb much of the traditional administrative burden.

Candidates need to be confident all rounders in terms of soft tissue surgery and medical cases. Ideally they will be looking to start a certificate or be part way through. Our client is happy to fund certificates and buy out training agreements. Candidates will also be team and client focused and have an interest in mentoring other vets and nurses.

Whilst the preference is for a full time (4 day week plus 1:6 Weekends) our client can consider other shift patterns two. We would be happy to discuss candidate needs with our client.

They are offering a fantastic package:
  • Upto 75k slary
  • Generous CPD including cert funding if required
  • Professional fees paid
  • Relocation available including temporary accommodation.
