Permanent Vet


Reading, Reading, England, United Kingdom


Vet Surgeon

Nov 28

Full or Part Time Vet 3-4 days per week.

Salary Range £40k-£70k – pro rata for part time.

A practice based in Basingstoke are looking for either a full time or part time vet, to work 3 or 4 days a week, 1 in 3 Saturdays. The practice is based on the outskirts of Basingstoke surrounded by the beautiful Hampshire countryside. It is also within easy reach of London and the coast.

The right candidate would be supported by a fantastic team of 6 very experienced caring vets who all have different specialties and areas of interest, and all of whom enjoy discussing cases and sharing their knowledge and experience with their colleagues. New Grads are welcome to apply too.

There is a great team of RVNs on site, most of whom have been trained at the practice. There is also a dedicated reception team and a Practice Manager.

  • Work life balance is encouraged, so the opening times have been reduced to 9am-6pm Monday to Saturday. Apart from a few vaccination appointments, there are no pre-bookable appointments on Saturdays (unless a vet requests this themselves) and we mainly see emergencies or patients that would benefit from being booked in on the day. Saturdays are worked with one other vet, two nurses and two receptionists. There are 18 ‘book on the day” appointments every day.
  • no out of hours requirement.
  • full time vets generally have 1 operating day and 3 consult days per week.

A normal consulting day is as follows:

  •  9-10am, admits and transfers from OOH (if any).
  • 10-1pm, 15 min consults (30 min for complex cases and euthanasia)
  • 1-3pm, check in patients, lunch and admin work.
  • 3-6pm, 15 min consults.

 On Operating days:

  •  The operating Vet has no scheduled consults, so once they have finished with their ops they can, if they wish, do their own minor procedures/ultrasounds or help the rest of the team. 

Please enquire if interested!
