Job Description

Our client is looking for a Farm/Equine Veterinary Surgeon to join their team. They have an interesting and varied equine and farm animal caseload with expertise in orthopaedics, reproduction, medicine and surgery, with scope for the successful candidate to excel in areas of interest.

About the Role:

Many of their vets have young families and so they understand the challenges of balancing work and family life. They pride themselves on their flexible approach which enables all of their colleagues to enjoy a good work life balance. They offer flexible working patterns for both their full-time and part-time colleagues. A full-time position will include working 40 hours per week over 4 days between Monday and Friday with out-of-hours/on call of 1 night per week and 1 in 4 weekends.

About the Practice:

They have a smart purpose-built practice with hospitalisation and surgical facilities for equines and farm animals on the outskirts of the beautiful city of Ely, within easy reach of London via direct train links and close to airports. They have all the usual toys and are keen on investing in new equipment, technologies and ideas.

Currently they have 9 Veterinary Surgeons with 2 of those being certificate holders. They also have 2 Registered Veterinary Nurses and 5 Support Staff. They are looking for a fellow enthusiast to join their dynamic team. They support local charities and have recently been on a 10km charity run with many members of the practice taking part.
