Job Details

Equine Veterinary Surgeon - Kessock Equine Vets, Inverness
Salary up to £63,000 depending on experience, up to £5,000 relocation support, and an incredible benefits package

Are you a veterinary surgeon with at least 1-2 years experience in practice, with some Equine experience essential. Perhaps you are considering a move from mixed practice to solely equine?

The Equine Oasis

Kessock Equine Vets welcomes you to a vibrant equine-centric environment. As a progressive, first opinion, and local referral clinic, our purpose-built facility is fully equipped with cutting-edge tools. From video endoscopy and gastroscopy to ultrasound and x-ray facilities, we have it all. With an outdoor arena, trot-up area, stocks, and a treatment room, you'll find the perfect space to thrive. The icing on the cake? Overnight stabling and paddocks for our cherished equine patients.

Your Diverse Role

Engage in a blend of ambulatory and clinic-based work that adapts to the caseload. Your skills and passion will shine as you make a difference in the lives of our equine companions. A work van is at your disposal for business use, and our out-of-hours rota stands at a manageable 1:4.5. We will happily consider 3-5 day weeks for the right fit and to ensure you strike that great balance! 

Your Highlands Playground

Nestled along the famous North Coast 500 route and in proximity to Inverness Airport, accessibility meets adventure. Embrace the call of the outdoors with mountaineering, wild swimming, skiing, snowboarding, sailing, and Munro bagging. A mere 40 minutes from the Cairngorms, the highlands are your playground.

Your Supportive Team

Join forces with a squad of 5 veterinary surgeons, equine veterinary nurse, stable staff, and dedicated office support. Collaborate with our visiting certificate holder and two vets pursuing their dentistry and internal medicine certificates. You'll find yourself thriving in an outgoing and supportive atmosphere, contributing to the local community and animal welfare.

Bring your expertise and experience as an equine veterinary surgeon to the forefront. An interest in lameness and a penchant for embracing an equine-only role is our ideal combination. Whether you're a seasoned equine veterinary surgeon or a mixed practice professional seeking a new focus, Kessock Equine Vets welcomes you!
