Job Description

Job Description:

Our client is currently seeking a full-time or part-time Veterinary Surgeon with a minimum of 1 year of experience to join their team.

About Their Practice:

They operate as a RCVS PSS Accredited, standalone small animal practice situated in Airdrie, Scotland. Established in 2012, they boast a sizable and devoted client base. The clinic encounters a diverse range of intriguing cases. Their amiable team comprises 3 Vets, 4 Nurses, 1 SVN, and 5 Client Care Advisors. Additionally, they have access to a visiting orthopaedic surgeon when necessary. Fostered by a tight-knit camaraderie, the team enjoys socializing beyond the confines of work, even convening a monthly book club. They prioritize collaboration, punctuating their schedule with breaks for case discussions and mutual support. Regular practice and clinical meetings are held to maintain cohesion. Emphasizing a healthy work-life balance, they allocate 20 minutes for non-routine consultations, provide ‘catch-up time’ post-appointments, facilitate twice-daily well-being breaks, and offer protected administrative time. Consultations conclude 30 minutes before closing time to ensure punctual departures. The clinic compensates for overtime or provides time in lieu for late departures. Notably, their proficient nursing team schedules three procedures, alleviating stress for their veterinary surgeons.

The Role:

The role is open for full-time or part-time positions (25-40 hours), with a 1:3 Saturday morning shift (9-12) and no OOH commitments. They pride themselves on offering flexible arrangements to accommodate working parents. Duties encompass consultations and surgeries, though they also welcome applications from consulting-only veterinarians.

Compensation & Benefits:

  • Salary ranges from £39-60k, contingent on experience.
  • Visa sponsorship available for international applicants.
  • Consideration for relocation assistance if necessary.
  • Coverage for professional subscriptions and memberships (RCVS, VDS).
  • Contributory workplace pension scheme.
  • Private Health Insurance.
  • Enhanced family-friendly policies, including various parental leaves.
  • Generous CPD allowance and funded certificates.
  • 5.6 weeks of holiday plus birthday leave.
  • Discounted pet care for staff.
  • Access to reward gateway offering discounts and cashback with numerous retailers.
  • Fully funded annual Christmas party.
  • Monthly Tea & Cake break (with an hour of door closure to clients).
  • Participation in the Cycle to Work scheme.
