Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon for Supportive Practice in Hampshire


Steph Ward
Our client with 2 practices in Hampshire have an opportunity available for a compassionate and dedicated Veterinary Surgeon to work between their two RCVS-accredited branches, only 10 minutes’ drive apart. This is a great location – so easy to get into the city (London and Guildford) but even easier to get out into countryside!

Both practices are fully equipped for you to be able to work up your cases to a high clinical standard. The amazing team of four Vets work collaboratively, managing their varied caseload efficiently. The management team genuinely listen and welcome all ideas to improve and grow the practice, as well as any suggestions to help you develop personally as a Vet. All of your individual interests will be supported and encouraged.

The vets are supported by wonderful team of 10 nurses, including 6 RVNs, who are talented and dedicated, with keen interests in anaesthetics, emergency management, exotics and nurse clinics.
The team are also strongly supported by the local hospital for OOH transfers and emergency support, as well as having access to CT, hydrotherapy and certificate holders in surgery and medicine.

The customers of both these well established practices are well bonded, and most are insured and many have been customers for decades as they enjoy the family feel of this client.

The team can proudly offer a 4-day working week, where at least 3 of those can have operating time (or more consults if you prefer). You will be able to create an enviable work/life balance by having the same day off each week as well as working only 1:4 Saturday mornings (which are consults only).

The benefits to this role extend further:

• 6.6 weeks paid holiday including bank holidays
• 1750 CPD Allowance per annum
• Health Shield - wide ranging contributions for health and wellbeing treatments - from dentistry to sports massage
• RCVS Membership paid
• Two other membership subscriptions
• VDS cover
• Enhanced paternity, maternity, adoption, shared parental leave and surrogacy pay
• Discounted veterinary fees
• Cycle to Work scheme
• CPD/training support
• Company sick pay
• Annual pay reviews
• Focus on employee wellbeing
• Career progression opportunities

Salary: 35,000-50,000 dependent on experience
