Job Details

Are you a small animal vet with an interest in imaging?

We are a two site practice located in the beautiful city of Bath. At Ashman Jones, we treat our clients and their pets as part of our family. We aim to offer the best clinical care every time in a friendly, welcoming environment. 

We have 15 min consult slots with a pleasantly paced schedule of 3 consults booked, 1 consult gap plus an 2 hour break in the middle of the day, so there is plenty of time for reporting results, case work up and even lunch and a cup of tea! If you choose to operate, it is a full operating day 8am-5pm. We have some very experienced nurses with interests in surgery and anaesthesia who are a great support on a busy operating day.

We have vets with interests in surgery, medicine and dermatology. We offer a reasonable level of abdominal ultrasonography but are working to improve our echocardiography. We would love to take on a colleague that has some interest and skill in this area! Support, mentoring and career progression is a huge part of what we do, we are keen to help others early in their career.

Although a small team we pride ourselves on evidenced-based, step wise in-house case work ups. Some of the more challenging cases may require specialist referral but we ensure that we complete as much of the work up ourselves, working collaboratively within our team and/or with local Certificate holders if needed, before taking this step. We also support following the case past our practice, for our own development as well as giving consistency to our clients.

Kit available includes digital x-ray, dental x-ray, two dental machines, oxygen contractors, in-house laboratory – biochemistry, haematology, microscope, Tonopen, ultrasound – Midray Z6 vet with abdominal and cardiac probe and ECG leads.

Full or part-time hours considered. Full-time is a 4 day a week, with 1:5 Saturdays (9am-3pm consults only)

Ideally you will have 1-2 years' experience.


  • 5 weeks holiday plus bank holidays, with the option to buy or sell up to an additional two weeks leave (pro rata)
  • Salary of up to £60,000 depending on experience
  • Receive an extra day's holiday each year, up to 5 years.
