Veterinary Surgeon - Full or Part Time
Our Vets4Pets surgery has a fantastic opportunity for an additional vet to join our team. The practice has been open for over 8 years and we have a large, bonded client base that provides a varied caseload.
We are located on the North side of Manchester only 30 minutes outside of the city centre and are easily accessible via buses and trains to Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, and Manchester. If the countryside is your way of relaxing, then the nearby Heaton Park and Alkrington Nature Reserve are the perfect destinations. For commuting routes, the practice is also under 10 minutes from the M60 which provides the ideal commuting journey for those coming from further afield.
In practice we carry out both routine and non-routine surgical procedures including orthopaedics and most soft tissue surgery; examples include BOAS, ear ablation, thyroidectomy, reconstructive surgery, anal gland removal, cystotomy, and urethrostomy. We also have a dedicated in-house lab, digital x-ray machine and ultrasound machine.
Our vet has over 12 years of experience, and he is regularly supported by a locum in practice to provide a service to our clients every Monday-Friday. We are looking for an experienced vet to join the team to help provide a service to our colleagues which would allow us to increase our surgery days in practice. You will ideally be comfortable in both consults and surgery as sole charge is something that will be required. Enthusiasm and passion for what you do are essential as well as providing an excellent and comprehensive service to all clients and patients.
We would be delighted for you to join the team, and you would be supported by the current colleagues which include our vet, RVN, SVN, 2 VCA’s and our non-clinical team which includes a Practice Manager, Head Receptionist and 2 Receptionists.
