Full-time or part-time daytime Veterinary Surgeon opportunity at Summerleaze Veterinary Hospital, Berkshire

We have a new opportunity for an experienced veterinary surgeon to join our friendly team at our RCVS accredited 24-hour hospital in Maidenhead, Berkshire. We are flexible in our approach to part-time work and our current team of 13 vets enjoy a mixture of full time, part time, day, twilight, night and weekend roles.

Our ethos is not only about providing great patient and client care, but also providing staff with an environment in which they can develop and progress in their chosen area of interest. Several of our vets have gained advanced certificates (ophthalmology, medicine) and we have others working towards advanced certificates in surgery, imaging, medicine and ECC. Being part of a team, sharing knowledge and experience is as important to us as having great clinical skill. We pride ourselves on our practice culture, enabling and providing a safe environment, and the capacity, time and skills for people to learn.

Are you a forward thinking and collaborative team player? Are you keen to provide best practice and continue to learn? If so, we could have a role for you!  

We are a Surrey university partner practice, so we are seeking applicants who have excellent communication skills and who demonstrate a desire to inspire and mentor others.

Our full-time day vets work a 4 day week rota + 1:7 Saturdays OR Sundays alongside our dedicated weekend vet. Part time negotiable.

Other benefits of the position include:

  • Annual Salary £41,200 to £74,000 (DOE and qualification)
  • Advanced certificate support and funding
  • Profit-sharing bonus scheme
  • 5 weeks annual leave + bank holidays + long service award
  • Buy/Sell holiday scheme – allowing you to purchase an extra 2 weeks of annual leave
  • Access to our ShareSave scheme – allowing you purchase shares in the business
  • Company pension scheme
  • All professional fees covered (RCVS and VDS)
  • Colleague discount on pet treatments and products
  • A range of other flexible benefits such as Cycle to Work Scheme, Gymflex, Perkbox and more.
