Our client has a 3-site group of practices in near Worthing. Due to their continued success, they are now looking for a full time Small Animal Vet to join them.

The client has 3 branches and the main site houses the surgical facilities. They are a general practice with a wide range of first opinion appointments for small animals and a few exotics. They are a friendly team with a big staffroom allowing generous breaks and downtime to reduce stress. They work with and support several local charities and have raised money for them. Facilities include ultrasound, dental x-rays, digital x ray, multi parameter GA monitoring and a bronchoscope.

The position would be for 38 hours per week with shifts working Monday to Friday between 8am and 8pm. Weekends on a 1:3 rota working Saturdays only and no out of hours. The sites all have a vet starting consulting at each morning and then one vet comes back to the main branch and after coffee, 2 vets do non sterile procedures up to lunch. Another vet does sterile operations all morning and each vet has a morning a week allocated for this. In the afternoon they all consult at the branches and someone has a half day.

There are 6 vets and 6 nurses. One vet is in her 2nd year of an imaging certificate. One nurse is doing an advanced qualification.
