If you are an experienced Veterinary Surgeon seeking a place where you’ll feel appreciated and part of a team, or if you’re eager to reignite your passion for the career you’ve dedicated so much time to, or simply seeking a modern, forward-thinking practice, then they are the perfect match for you!

About Their Practice:

They are a gold ISFM practice and a silver RWAF practice. They have been awarded an ACE award (Aspiring Clinical Excellence) from Vets for Pets as well. Their team includes exotic certificate holders, and they handle a diverse case load. They also incorporate acupuncture into their practice and maintain a fear-free environment.

As a Veterinary Surgeon, you’ll be at the heart of their practice. They genuinely care for their staff; their wellbeing is their priority. Last year, they hired a personal trainer for the entire team, which was immensely enjoyable! They are always exploring innovative ways to support their staff’s wellbeing and cultivate a relaxed atmosphere, so they welcome new ideas.

Their location is excellent; they are only 20 minutes away from major city centres and close enough to enjoy the outdoors of the Peak District. There are plenty of options for retail therapy, and transportation links are conveniently accessible.

They enjoy organizing various social activities, whether it’s dining out one week or swimming in lakes the next! They also attend CPD events together, which often includes a shopping trip!
