Senior Veterinary Surgeon
thevetrecruite1 NSV - Veterinary Recruitment
Are you currently working in the city and long for the country life? Or perhaps considering a step up in your career as a vet?
We are recruiting for a busy small animal practice that operate independently with the benefit of a brand support office.
Led by their owner and head vet (Cambridge valedictorian), this is an excellent opportunity to join a tight and supportive (freshly refurbished) practice.
They offer surgical procedures, dental, digital x-ray, ultrasound, with some in house lab testing facilities and are seeking an experienced small animal veterinary surgeon, confident in basic surgeries and capable of sole charge, (even though this is rarely the case). Confident working up and managing your own cases with support from an exceptional head vet, team of qualified nurses and support colleagues.
No OOH or Sunday working (and every other Saturday working a short day). We’re even interested in hearing from you if you’re looking for part time work.
For the right candidate, there is even the potential to buy into the practice.
Are you driven, efficient, thorough and enjoy the company of colleagues that strive for excellence? They are an established, friendly practice with an exceptional reputation and staff that have been here since they opened 13 years ago. They have never needed to advertise for clients and value their loyal, long standing client base with whom they’ve cultivated wonderful relationships. They enjoy an independent approach to the practice, but with all the benefits of a support office that goes with their brand.
They are situated in a popular retail park (with a 24 hour gym next door), based in the beautiful historic city of Salisbury and are surrounded by stunning countryside. The New Forest on the doorstep and the Salisbury plains and Stonehenge are just north of them. London is just over an hour away by train and the coast is a 30 minute drive south.
This is a truly exciting opportunity to be part of a special team with a commitment to gold standard animal care, with the competitive salary and generous benefits package and support you would expect from a major industry employer in our sector.
