Usk Veterinary Centre, The Veterinary Centre
Up to £65,000 depending on experience, plus benefits 

Find a supportive team and a world of opportunity at Usk! 

We are looking for a veterinary surgeon who is confident, friendly and who is a team player, to join our passionate team. Our vets work across our main surgery and branches on a shared rota, with a mix of consulting, surgical and inpatient work. We have certificate holders in both small animal medicine and surgery, allowing us to not only diagnose and treat the majority of our cases in-house, but also provide support to other team members in their career progression.

Typically, our full-time position is 40 per week, working between the hours of 8.30am and 7pm, four days a week. We know that work life balance is important so we are open to discussing working days/hours that would suit you. Our weekends are shared between 6 veterinary surgeons leaving you to share a 1 in 3 rota. We do not run our own OOH surgery this is handled within a ten-minute drive to our local VetsNow. We are happy for full or part time applications.

Our people are at the heart

We are a two-site, small animal practice in the heart of Monmouthshire and our branch surgery is within a ten-minute drive away. Our Practice is set a stone throw away from Monmouthshire river which our staff and their dogs enjoy at lunchtimes. We are a five-minute walking distance into Usk Town and situated within the Brecon Beacons. The area offers an abundance for you to do in your downtime away from work. Cardiff and Bristol are both within a 45-minute drive.

We have our own laboratory for in house use, DR X-ray machine with SignalPet Use, Dental x-ray and separate Dental theatre along with our prep rooms and main Theatre, Ultrasound machine, endoscopy and Walk In Kennels. 

Meet like-minded professionals

You will be joining a team of 6 veterinary surgeons, 10 nurses and 9 receptionists and practice manager. We pride ourselves on our longstanding team and we are committed to excellent clinical care and extremely high standards, with a silver level cat friendly status from the ISFM and RCVS PSS General Practice accreditation in our main Usk site..

What we’re looking for in you

Usk Vets was founded over 60 years ago and is part of the fabric of the local community. We have a strong team of vets and nurses dedicated to offering optimal treatment to all animals under our care. As a rural mixed practice, we have veterinary expertise with all creatures, and individual vets specialise in these different species.

We are proud that, unlike many of our professional colleagues, we run our own on-call service with our own vets. We feel this is a fundamental part of our duty of care to your animals - to provide a 24-hour service that, crucially, is able to maintain continuity of patient care.
