Job Details

Up to £65,000 DOE, Welcome Bonus up to £5,000, Relocation Allowance up to £5,000

We are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our well-established practice, Clent Hills, in Hagley.

Join our team at Clent Hills and embark on a fulfilling role where you will handle a wide variety of cases, from consultations to surgeries. Our branch practice is staffed with up to two vets each day, supported by three dedicated nurses. You will also have access to the expertise and support of our excellent team at other branches whenever needed. Although rare, there may be occasions where you are in sole charge, so confidence in treating patients and managing consultations independently is essential.

A typical day consists of two sessions of consultations as well as scheduled time between these sessions each day for surgery. Surgeries include neutering including laparoscopic spay, as well as soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery. We can offer dentistry with dental x-ray available, ultrasound facilities, endoscopy, and in-house laboratory for bloods and microscopy. Our out-of-hours service is provided by Vets Now, working from Blaise Veterinary Referral Hospital in Longbridge (15 min from either branch).

This is an outstanding opportunity for a Veterinary Surgeon who thrives on diverse cases and wants to make a tangible difference. At Clent Hills, your skills and contributions will be highly valued as we work together to provide top-notch care for our clients and their beloved pets.

If you are passionate about veterinary medicine and looking for a role that offers both variety and support, we would love to hear from you. Join us at Clent Hills and become a key part of our dedicated and dynamic team.

At Clent Hills, we prioritise our team’s well-being, knowing that a balanced work-life is essential for bringing out the best in each individual. Our flexible rotas and adaptable working hours are tailored to fit your lifestyle, no matter where you are in your career. Join us for a truly fulfilling experience where your well-being is our priority, and your career journey is supported with unparalleled flexibility and understanding.

Become part of a practice that genuinely cares about you, offering the perfect blend of professional growth and personal well-being.

Our full time rota would typically involve 4 full days per week and a share in our weekend rota which would be 1 weekend in 4. However, we are flexible regarding shifts and hours worked and are happy to discuss alternative working arrangements.

Join Our Experienced And Collaborative Team

We create opportunities for the whole team to come together through practice meetings and social events - we believe in a collaborative workplace. We encourage interest and participation within the team to think creatively to enable us to continuously improve our services and our business. Our caring and compassionate team hold a wealth of experience and knowledge and are highly skilled in preventative healthcare as well as treating illness and injury.
