Vet Surgeon

Jul 25

Full-time veterinary surgeon required for an independent 2 branch practice based in South Manchester/ Cheshire.

Clinical freedom and opportunity to work up own cases, regular visiting specialists.

The Role

If you’re a SA vet looking for the next chapter in your career, then we would love you to join us. We are looking for a new vet to join the team as one of our vets is off travelling the world.

We are a 4/5 vet RCVS GP accredited and independent practice in South Manchester. We have had renovation work completed at both branches over recent years.

We are offering the right person the opportunity to work with superb, experienced RVN's and trainee nurses. We have a very loyal client base.

The full-time week is over 4 days, and will be split between consulting and surgery sessions, however, we are very flexible and can work the week to your preference. i.e., if you would like more surgical sessions or time to work up medical cases that is something that can be put in place for you! Saturdays are on a rota - currently 1-in-4.

We have some really fantastic kit here, including an ultrasound machine, digital x-ray, an endoscope, multiparameter monitor,  drip pump, and brand-new in-house diagnostics.

We absolutely encourage clinical freedom, and we are always open to ideas and suggestions. Our consultations are generally fifteen minutes with a twenty-minute allocation for new vets.

We tend to allow 30-minute slots for euthanasia, skin problems or clients who are known to like a chat!

Nurses are assigned to the dispensary at all times which saves the vets from counting tablets and frees them up to crack on with the exciting stuff. The nurses are also encouraged to do schedule 3 work and consults to help the vets.

We use an out-of-hours provider so no on-call, Sundays, or bank holidays.

In a nutshell, we work hard, we laugh a lot, we eat a lot of cake, we love to socialise, and our Christmas parties are legendary.

Successful Candidate

Ideally, we’re looking for an experienced vet, but we are also able to support a new graduate.

The Package

Further education and CPD are encouraged. CPD allowance is negotiable if it benefits yourself and the practice.

Bonus scheme

There are 5 weeks of annual leave plus all bank holidays, RCVS and VDS are all paid for.

Starting salary £40-45 k depending on experience
