Job Details

Our little quaint town of Newtown is looking for the next Veterinary Surgeon in a leadership capacity in our Medivet practice.

The practice has 3 consult rooms, separate prep and theatre, separate dog and cat ward and working towards their silver cat friendly status. We offer 15 minute appointments and you will be supported by a dedicated, driven head nurse, student vet nurse and a receptionist.

We are looking for someone who enjoys their job and strives for high clinical standards. Ideally we want someone full time, which is a 4-day week with 1 in 6 full weekends at our hospital in Shrewsbury, but would consider someone part time (3 day week)

  • Salary up to £65,000 depending on experience and we will also pay for a certificate if you wanted to do one. We are a Medivet practice so have a big support network of vets locally and nationally who you can go to for advice on cases/refer things to.
  • We have all the usual equipment, including k-laser, but for anything extra e.g. CT scanner and scopes you can take your case to our local Hospital (Shrewsbury Pet Hospital), which is 45 mins away, and continue working it up there.
  • OOH goes to our local hospital.

The role is a leadership role so you will be expected to drive clinical performance and other aspects of the business. You will work closely with the regional teams to discuss practice performance and help grow the client base.

Please do not hesitate to email for further enquiries.

As qualified MRCVS, you’ll already have good experience gained in small animal practice.
