An exciting opportunity has arisen for a 1st opinion surgical and medical Veterinary Surgeon to join our friendly and supportive team here at the practice near Ashton-in-Makerfield!
We are proud to be an eco-practice! You’ll have a varied caseload, with opportunities to develop specialism if wished.
Rota and salary
• 36 hours over a 4-day week (9.00am to 6.00pm),
• 1 in 5 Saturdays (9.00-12.00)
• No out of hours
• Salary of up to £52,000 depending on experience
Our premises are both light and spacious and are fully equipped with x ray, ultrasound, endoscopy, tonometry, in-house labs, and bipolar diathermy. Both surgeries have dedicated ventilation systems with positive pressure operating rooms to provide a healthy working environment.
We take our responsibility to the planet seriously and take every opportunity to minimise our impact on the environment. From the purpose built only passivhaus Veterinary Clinic in the UK right down to the eco-friendly toys and accessories we are dedicated to making a difference.
We're right in between Liverpool and Manchester if the city lights appeal, or short distances away from numerous country parks and areas to hike, relax or sip tea (or beer!) as you fancy. If beaches are for you, we're just half an hour away from Southport and New Brighton, and links to major motorways are close by if you want to get further away.
About the Team and Culture
We have 5 Veterinary Surgeons, 5 Veterinary Nurses (including 2 Advanced nurses), 2 VCAs, and a team of dedicated receptionists led by our practice manager.
We are the friendliest bunch of colleagues you could hope to find, and our relaxed environment means that we look after each other as well as our clients!
We're always looking for ways to make a difference in our community and our colleagues are involved in different community projects.
You will be enthusiastic and positive, believing what you do makes a difference to your clients and the world around you. You may have professional interests you wish to pursue to a specialised career, or you may be looking for a place to establish your expertise. Either way, we are the place for you.
We would welcome your input and interests to help shape the next stage of our journey here.
You will be an enthusiastic Vet Surgeon with some post-qualification experience preferably (although we are able to support newly qualified vets too). You must be a team player who enjoys sharing good practices with colleagues as well as learning from their experience and examples.
