Veterinary Surgeon - Unleash Your Potential

Are you an experienced small animal vet seeking a fulfilling opportunity? Moorview Vets in Backworth is where your journey to excellence begins. Join us, and together, we'll reach new heights.

Your Path with Us

Enjoy a flexible, full-time schedule consisting of a 4-day week with a set day off, tallying up to 40 hours per week. 1 in 6 Saturday rotation as part of your 40 hours, with the option for part-time arrangements. Revel in a practice that respects your work-life balance - no out-of-hours commitment, shared bank holidays (daytime only), and closure on Christmas Day and New Year's Day. Your daily duties will encompass a dynamic blend of consulting and performing procedures, offering you a diverse and enriching experience.

About Us

We're not just a practice; we're a family of multi-centre veterinary excellence, with six branches spread across Newcastle and Northumberland. Our state-of-the-art facilities include 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 our dedicated 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.

Nestled close to the captivating Northeast coast, we're surrounded by miles of unspoiled beaches and conveniently located within striking distance of vibrant Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.

Our team is a powerhouse, comprising 15 vets, 14 RVNs, 4 SVNs, 4 ACAs, and 18 dedicated support staff. Our RVNs are well-equipped, trained in schedule 3 procedures, and some are actively pursuing qualifications in behaviour, emergency and critical care, and feline nursing. We take pride in our multiple certificate holders in ECC, internal medicine, surgery, and dentistry. Plus, we're thrilled to have a vet who specializes in advanced rabbit and small mammal medicine and surgery.
