Job Details

Veterinary Surgeon
Adams Vets, Wavertree
Up to £65,000 DOE (pro rata for part time), up to £5,000 Welcome Bonus (pro rata for part time), plus up to £5,000 Relocation Allowance

At Adams Vets, we have been diligently building and growing our exceptional team across our Fazakerley and Wavertree branches. We welcomed a new supportive and motivated leadership team in 2023 and now we are ready to welcome additional Veterinary Surgeons to our Wavertree or Fazakerley team. Our team typically split their time between both clinics however if you prefer to work in just one site we can accommodate this. You will have a diverse caseload including consults and surgical time. However, we will be led by you and if you would prefer a consult only we can support this. Ideally, we’re looking for someone with at least two years experience in practice.

Rota patterns that work for you

At Adams, we understand the importance of a healthy work-life balance. That's why we offer highly flexible working options. Our commitment to accommodating your needs extends to rota patterns and working hours, allowing you to strike the perfect balance. If you opt for full time, this would typically consist of 35 hours per week between 9am – 6.30pm with three scheduled gaps throughout the day to allow you to process your admin. You have the flexibility to work four full days with one mid-week day off or 3 full days and 2 half days. The weekend rota is currently 1:3 Saturday mornings. There are no out of hours required as Vets Now cover our evening and weekend emergencies.

Here's what the team have to say

“My name is Nikki and I am a Registered Veterinary Nurse and have worked for Adams Vets for 13 years in total. When you come into our practice you will find me in my consulting room. I qualified in 2006 and went on to obtaining qualifications to become a clinical coach so I have trained many students in becoming Registered Veterinary Nurses. I am always striving to do better and I have just enrolled to do a qualification in consulting. We are a really close-knit team here who always look out and support each other any way we can. We are more than colleagues, we are the Adams family and we spend more time with each other than our own families so it is really important to be happy and fulfilled in work. We welcome new members with open arms who share the same drive passion and kindness as us. “ - Nikki, RVN.
