Based at the main Tier 2 RCVS Accredited Practice, with a smaller branch practice just 6 miles away, the ideal candidate would be a good all round SA vet with a minimum of 2 years experience.
You must be comfortable working as part of a team, but also happy to work independently being responsible for consulting, surgery, diagnosis and treatment of patients and inpatient care.

The team of vets and nurses are supported by a dedicated team of Receptionists to ensure the smooth running of such a busy and developing practice.

This is a full time position working a rota of shifts from 9am-5:30pm / 6pm and 7pm and 1:3 Saturday mornings 8:30am-12noon, with cover at the branch surgery needed on a weekly rota basis.
