Job Details

Join Our Distinguished Team at Moorview Vets!
At Moorview Vets, we're on the hunt for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our friendly and supportive team. Your day-to-day duties will encompass a balanced blend of surgical procedures and consulting, with the flexibility to choose your workdays and shift patterns. Our commitment to work-life balance is reflected in a 1 in 6 Saturday rotation, no out-of-hours commitment, and equally shared daytime bank holiday coverage (approximately 1 or 2 per year). We cherish our tradition of closing our doors on Christmas Day and New Year's Day to allow our team time with their loved ones.

A Network of Excellence in Care 

With six branches located across Newcastle and Northumberland, Moorview Vets offers a dynamic and diverse practice environment. Our facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including on-site CT, direct digital x-ray, dental x-ray suites, laparoscopy, endoscopy, and ultrasound with doppler capabilities.

We prioritise efficient on-the-day emergency consults with ECC shifts. ECC vets manage emergencies at our main branch, allowing other vets to focus on their scheduled procedures. These shifts come with a dedicated nurse, ensuring seamless patient care.

Meet Our All-Star Team

You'll be part of a dynamic and multidisciplinary team, comprising 15 skilled veterinarians, 14 RVNs, 4 SVNs, 4 ACAs, and 18 dedicated support staff. Our RVNs are well-equipped and trained in Schedule 3 procedures, with some actively pursuing qualifications in behaviour, emergency and critical care, and feline nursing. We take immense pride in our multiple certificate holders in ECC, internal medicine, surgery, and dentistry. 
As an experienced candidate and an MRCVS member, you'll bring your expertise and dedication to our practice, helping us continue our tradition of providing exceptional veterinary care to our community.
