Job Details

Veterinary Surgeon
Join the Team at Wright and Morten Vets, Macclesfield Vet Hospital
Competitive Salary up to £65,000, commensurate with experience, and comprehensive benefits package

Exciting horizons await for a small animal veterinary surgeon to join our welcoming and innovative team at Wright and Morten Vets, Macclesfield Veterinary Hospital!
In this engaging role, you'll find yourself delving into the dynamic balance of sole charge consultations and operations at our branch, alongside the rewarding experiences at our main Hospital premises.

Craft Your Schedule

Embrace a fulfilling 4-day work week, accompanied by a dedicated day off, as well as  2 in 5 Saturday mornings. You'll encounter a variety of shifts, either 8 am - 6 pm or 8.30 am - 7 pm at our hospital, or 9 am - 6.30 pm at a branch.
Best of all? No more night shifts! As a Vets Now host practice, we ensure the night is a time for rest whilst maintaining top notch care for your inpatients.
Within our diversified practice, we've carved out distinct Small Animal, Equine, and Farm divisions. Encompassing our Small Animal domain, our Macclesfield hospital and branches in Wilmslow and Congleton weave a tapestry of care across Cheshire.
Our practice nestles just south of Manchester, embracing the western fringes of the Peak District, offering easy connectivity to the urban allure, the National Parks, and beyond.

Exceptional Equipment for Exception Care

Experience the ample offerings of our well-equipped hospital, featuring an array of tools ranging from X-ray and ultrasound to endoscopy and a comprehensive Idexx lab suite. The forthcoming move to our new hospital promises an enhanced repertoire of amenities, amplifying our current capabilities.
In the realm of our Small Animal Department, a cohort of 5 full-time and 6 part-time vets orchestrates our endeavors. Anchored by a seasoned team of 7 RVNs and 1 SVN, alongside a group of affable non-clinical staff, our collective spirit fuels our progress.
Eminence radiates through our CertAVP holder,  a vet accomplished in both Medicine and ECC Certs, and another with a Medicine Cert. Alongside, vets are presently embarking on certification journeys in fields like Medicine and Exotics.
Our amazing team features visiting AP and RCVS Specialists across imaging, soft tissue, orthopedics, cardiology, and dermatology, ensuring a holistic approach to care.

You and Your Journey 

This role, a full-time proposition, warmly extends its arms to flexible work arrangements, understanding the significance of well-rounded lives. Ease into the confidence of leading sole charge consultations and standard surgeries, fortified by the presence of an ever-supportive backup.
While an enthusiasm for further qualifications is prized, it's not a prerequisite. The upcoming relocation fuels our ambition to expand our offerings, kindling a fire of excitement for those eager to embark on this voyage.
Seeking a vet seasoned in experience, adept at navigating the realms of sole charge responsibilities, while being equally adept at flourishing within the camaraderie of our larger hospital team.
At the heart of our ethos lies a commitment to nurturing work-life equilibrium, endorsing breaks, brews, lunches, and punctual departures. Come, thrive with us!

Wright & Morten is a high quality veterinary practice based in Macclesfield, Cheshire.  From our roots as a mixed species practice, we now operate as three separate dedicated divisions – pets, farm animals and equines.  This allows us to have three specialised teams of vets, each only dealing with their chosen species.

Located in central Macclesfield, our Royal College Approved Veterinary Hospital provides a facility for the care of patients requiring medical investigations and surgical procedures as well as general care for pets of all ages.  We also have two branch surgeries both with operating and day care patient facilities in Wilmslow and Congleton.

Our Farm animal practice office is centred in Lower Withington, Macclesfield.  From here, our specialised farm vets cover a range of dairy, beef and sheep work from the Cheshire Plains to the Derbyshire Hills, with consultancy work further afield.

Our equine clinic is at Somerford Park, Congleton.  Here we have in-patient and full surgical facilities.  Our equine only vets cover a large range of areas from Macclesfield, Congleton and Wilmslow to Stockport, Greater Manchester, Marple, New Mills, Leek and Buxton, where routine work can be carried out on yards. Routine  health checks, vaccinations & dentistry work can be carried out on yards with suitable facilities, and cases requiring greater investigation may be admitted to the equine clinic.

We attained “Investors in People” status in 1999, and have recently passed our 2011 assessment.  We are a RCVS accredited Tier 3 Small Animal Hospital, Tier 2 Equine clinic and Tier 2 Farm Animal Practice.

We are proud to be a member practice of XL Vets.
