Independent Practices

Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom


Vet Surgeon

Dec 12

A Locum Vet is needed between January and June at a single vet practice on the Isle of Skye. This is a unique opportunity to live in rural Scotland and work as a Locum with a mix of small animal pets and some large animal work.

The following dates are available but any shorter stints within the periods is welcomed.

04/01/2023 to 22/01/2023 (mixed species, sole charge)

10/02/2023 to 31/03/2023 (mixed species, sole charge)

01/04/2023 to 30/06/2023 (mixed species, or agric only or companion animal       only working with another vet 

You would be based at a traditional, independent, mixed species (no dairy), rural practice (James Herriot style), single-handed most of the year but 2 vets in April-June

This is usually a quiet time of the year for large animal work, with lambing not starting until late March. However, there may be occasional farm calls for calvings/caesarians/calfbeds for a few of our winter calving herds.

The busiest time of year is from mid-March until the end of June when ideally they would like a second vet to work alongside the practice owner.

On call and OOH is required.

Accommodation can be provided in a 2 bedroom cottage in the country and about 3 miles from the practice. Dogs and friends/relatives are welcome to use the accommodation.

A vehicle is available for use when working with us (inc personal use, for any locums who may not have their own transport).
