The Role

A Veterinary Surgeon is required on a permanent basis at a practice in Gloucester.

About Us

We have a beautiful, purpose-built site that is clean, spacious, well-equipped and situated close to Gloucester in a rural area. The site is equipped with a separate op’s theatre, separate dental, ultrasound and X-ray room and a large prep area. We have isolation facilities and a hydrotherapy treadmill, run by a qualified hydrotherapist. Our unique selling point is our attention to our customers’ needs - we make them feel welcome and ensure we do everything we can to help them.

Across our 3 sites, we have 7 Veterinary Surgeons, 8 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 11 Reception staff and a Practice Manager. We have staff with interests and additional qualifications in Feline Medicine, Ophthalmology, Exotics and Cardiology. Our new Vet will fill the role of an all-rounder, being able to deal with all routine consultations, medical workups, and operations. They will be supported by the rest of the clinical team, both locally and across the other sites, but will often be working sole charge.

Applicant Requirements

We require an experienced candidate who is prepared to work at least part of their week sole charge (but with support available from other sites). Ideal attributes include the ability to organise the clinical work efficiently and ensure the day runs smoothly; the ability to deal with emergencies and prioritize care for the patients that need it most; and the ability to work well as part of a small team. Excellent patient and customer care is a requisite.
