Twilight Vet - within a large team in a hospital environment


Steph Ward
We have a fantastic client in the Bristol area, based in a purpose built small animal hospital and are looking for someone to work along side the Emergency vet dealing with hospital inpatients, emergency consults and procedures as required.

This role is to work 7 shifts on and 7 shifts off and is a brand new role created due to how busy this night team have become.

Currently working 6pm until 2am seems to be the busiest part of the night where the work volume has become too much for one vet/nurse & care assistant. This is why we are now looking to bring in a twilight team.
We have already successfully recruited twilight nurses and care assistants so two twilight vets will complete the 'twilight team'.

The ideal candidate will have some previous in practice experience and be looking for their next challenge or a better work/life balance. This position gives you the experience of working amongst the larger team during the day, with all aspects of first opinion work and then during the twilight part of the role working side by side with the experienced Emergency OOH Vets dealing with any emergency which may come through the door. In addition to dealing with emergencies you will also be taking care of the hospitalized first opinion and referral patients.

The position will give candidates fantastic exposure, to wide and varied caseload and will help you to develop your own skills and passions whilst working in a supportive and experienced environment. The team consists of 12 vets, 8 RVNs and 11 Nursing Assistants.

The client encourages and funds CPD, offer a competitive salary, exclusive company discounts, reward schemes and career development.
