We are looking for a confident Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon to join our friendly team at Wellpets Worle. Bring your enthusiasm, sense of humour and a love for the job and meet a warm welcome. We are happy to support anyone looking to relocate to the area, we can offer a welcome bonus for the right candidate and we are happy to assist where possible

Our two practices are spread across both ends of Somerset, but this role would be based at our Worle branch in beautiful North Somerset. 

Worle is a suburban area located just 3 miles from the town of Weston-super-Mare in North Somerset.  Worle offers an enjoyable lifestyle for its residents due to its convenient amenities and proximity to both urban and natural attractions.

The railway station has direct services to London Paddington and Bristol Temple Meads, Taunton and Cardiff Central. 

We have modern equipment of general practice at our disposal : Idexx haematology and biochemistry, microscopy, ultrasound with doppler, digital xray DR system, dental DR, multiparameter monitor, electrocautery and a therapeutic laser machine. 

Our superb nursing team are encouraged to contribute at every level, building great relations with our loyal clients. 

We seek someone with a positive contribution to make, fresh ideas and a collaborative approach to growing the practice, allowing you as a talented vet to enjoy your role to the full.  

Our motto at Wellpets is “treating pets like family” but we also extend this to treating our colleagues like family.
