Are you an experienced vet looking to join a passionate team where you can learn new skills and really achieve your career goals? What if you could be part of this team with the support of a multi-certificate holder behind you?

A small animal practice in Totton, Hampshire, is growing fast and looking for an additional veterinary surgeon to join the friendly team.

The practice owner is an Advanced Practitioner in small animal surgery, and opened the clinic in June 2018.

You’ll also be joining an exceptional team of 2 full time veterinary surgeons, 2 RVNs, 2 SVNs and 3 receptionists with the nurse team having a combined experience of 50 years!

The practice owner's multiple certificates including a certificate in emergency medicine and surgery as well as in soft tissue/orthopaedic surgery certAVP(gSAS), puts the clinic in a unique position to offer a varied case load and learning experience. They have orthopaedic equipment on site and are open to investing in further equipment, depending on the vets’ skills sets and interests.

Days are well structured with consultations between 9am-12pm with ops in between, lunch and then consultations again from 3pm with the last consultation at 6pm with the intention for everyone to leave on time when the practice closes at 7pm.

Ideally this is a full-time role to support the growth of the practice, with flexibility for shorter hours considered if required. The full-time vets currently work 4 days a week, in addition to a shared Saturday rota when they open between 9am and midday, for consultations and emergencies only. There are no OOH.

In joining the team and supporting a great community and client base, we are looking for a colleague with solid GP experience, confident in occasional sole charge, a team player with great communication skills and someone that shares our passion for providing the highest level of veterinary care. 

By joining the practice you will be part of a supportive and welcoming team in addition to:

  • Salary up to £52,000 commensurate with experience
  • 4 weeks holiday + 8 bank holidays’ (FTE)
  • Life assurance 4 x annual salary
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Paid memberships (RCVS, BVA, VDS)
  • Dedicated CPD allowance
  • Funding and support towards certificates available
  • No OOH 
  • Cycle to work scheme 
  • Access to colleague assistance programmes - Retail trust and port of call
  • Exclusive company discounts and rewards.

The practice is a bright and airy standalone practice which as well as the 3 consult rooms and theatre, also includes a designated office and colleague space upstairs with kitchen and seating area.

Totton itself can be found on the west side of Southampton with easy access to the picturesque New Forest National Park, making it a desirable place to anyone wishing to explore both coast and countryside.
