Experienced Veterinary Surgeon

thevetrecruite1 NSV - Veterinary Recruitment

This clinic is on the lookout for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon to join its team of 11 (FTE) Vets who is looking to study for a surgery or dental certificate.


The practice is keen to make changes after Covid, asking what their staff what they wanted from the role:

  • A better work-life balance – now closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays.
  • No more staying late – everybody gets afternoon ‘admin time’ for reporting those results or speaking to owners.
  • No more rude customers – one strike and you’re out… A warning letter for inappropriate behaviour. Repeat offenders then get a sacking letter.
  • Clear career development – career pathways for every position, from trainee Receptionists, right through to experienced Vets.
  • Support and mentoring – regular line manager conversations, discussing and implementing change within an agreed timeline.


  • Salary up to £55,000 (pro-rata), depending on experience

  • Regular operating days
  • No OOHs

  • Practice social events
  • 1 in 4 Saturdays, no Sundays or Bank Holidays
  • Holidays – 5 weeks plus Bank Holidays
  • Opportunity to buy and sell holiday
  • Enhanced sick, maternity, and paternity pay
  • Certificate study hugely encouraged and fully funded (9 of our Vets either hold certificates or are on their way there)

  • Career progression opportunities and regular development reviews
