SA or SA/Equine Veterinary Surgeons required for Tier3 Hospital on Jersey - Minimum 12 months


Steph Ward
Our client on the Island of Jersey are looking for 2 veterinary surgeons. One mainly small animal vet and a vet with 50/50 equine and small animal skills.

This is an 18 vet predominantly small animal Tier 3 Hospital. In the hospital the team have CT, DR Xray, scopes of various sizes, tplo saws, large array of orthopaedic equipment, arthroscopy, laparoscopy, hydrotherapy, plus the other usual toys.
The hospital is staffed 24/7 with qualified RVN's. The rota ensures maximum work life balance. A week of night duties every 10 weeks means you don't work the day and allows for a four-day weekend the week after.
3 branch practices mean the occasional drive between and time to enjoy the coastal views.

As well as the small animal side the team have a growing equine practice, again a DR X-ray machine and 3m video gastroscope allows for good diagnostics. They have a local race club and provide veterinary cover for this throughout the summer weekends.
As with all Islands the occasional farm work is available if wanted and some of the other weird and wonderful pets.

The position would suit a new/recent graduate as there is always plenty of support. This is a full time role with a generous salary for the right candidate - between 37k-65k per annum

The island itself offers an excellent standard of living with Europe just across the water (when it reopens). Jersey has coped with COVID due to the ease to close borders and we are now near 40% of the island fully vaccinated. Water sports are massive on the island, kayaking, SUP, surfing, fishing, boating, wake boarding etc. The rambling itself is also varied by long sandy beaches to coastal green cliffs paths - perfect for walking dogs. While the cost of living in jersey is higher - tax is far lower and salaries reflect the cost of the island.
