Mixed Animal Vet required for Practice in Scottish Borders


Steph Ward
Our client based in the Scottish Borders are looking for a caring, enthusiastic mixed animal vet to join their friendly team and provide an excellent service to their great clients and their animals.

On the small animal side you will see a variety of cases and be able to provide a professional service to the loyal and longstanding local clients, valuing continuity of care, and with the opportunity to work up your own cases.

The farm animal side will involve work with forward-thinking farmers - mainly with suckler cows and sheep, with some pedigree herds/ flocks and dairy work. The position would involve advising on preventative medicine planning, as well as routine and emergency work. There is always excellent support available from experienced colleagues.

The practice has a number of assistants enrolled in certificate programmes (with study time provided) to actively promote career progression.

The role would suit a confident vet who enjoys working as part of an experienced, enthusiastic team, providing excellent clinical care and who is keen to develop their skills. The ideal candidate will have a good teamwork ethic and high standards of client care.

The practice is set in a rural location near the coast but within an hour of Edinburgh and therefore providing a great place to enjoy your time away from work.

A generous remuneration package is on offer in return for a 4.5 day week, with an equal share of farm only OOH.
