Experienced Equine Vet
We are a mixed practice perfectly situated for exploring the beautiful North Yorkshire coastline (Upleatham), whether that be through walking, surfing or cycling.
We have a range of experienced colleagues, including certificate holders, previous new graduates and vets that have been with us for many years. Our practice is very social with a strong, supportive and welcoming team. Our equine facilities are located at our main site where we have stables, an examination room, stocks, a knock down box, equine theatre, a trot-up area and a lunging pen. As well as the usual equipment, we also have equinosis q which we use for all our lameness work-ups.
We pride ourselves in offering our clients an exceptional standard of care by building strong relationships and encouraging continuity of care. We are a close, friendly team of four vets and are looking for an experienced vet to add to this.
A good work life balance is important to us so we ensure that the on-call vet is available from 4pm, to allow everyone else to finish on time. The on-call rota is shared equally and is usually quiet. The work is a mix of ambulatory and in-clinic, working mainly with pleasure horses, but there are also competition horses and some reproductive cases. To improve efficiency and reduce driving time for vets we offer area visit days, which are well organised by our team of support staff.
We have a strong team ethic in the equine department, with supportive and approachable team members and the opportunity to develop an interest in a particular area.
The working hours are 8:30am-5pm, 4 days per week plus a share of the evening and weekend on-call rota. Part time hours also considered.
The package includes:
- Competitive Salary
- CPD allowance
- Generous staff discount
- RCVS and VDS membership fees
- BVA and BEVA membership fees
- 5 weeks holiday, plus bank holidays
- Resettlement package if required
- Lunch provided
Ideally the successful candidate will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, be driven and be happy to work as part of a close and friendly team. Please feel free to ask any questions, speak to one of our vets or come and meet the team to get a feel for the practice.
