Job Details

Salary up to £70,000 DOE, Relocation Allowance up to £5,000

One of our longstanding vets is sadly relocating to Scotland! So, we find ourselves in need of a new team member to join our progressive, friendly, patient-focused practice based across the Buckinghamshire/Oxfordshire border (High Wycombe, Hazlemere and Watlington). We would be particularly keen to speak to applicants with a surgical bias, but more important than anything is someone who is compassionate and forward thinking. We are a very patient-focused practice, and are proud to provide care for the Stokenchurch Dog Rescue, as well as many other local and national charities.

Rota patterns that work for you

As a VetsNow host practice, we are able to offer a high-level of 24/7 care to our patients, without the need to work out of hours. We work 3 in 7 Saturday mornings, with the practice closing at midday, and no Sundays. We pride ourselves on a good work life balance, and are happy to consider all flexible working patterns to give the best balance possible to all our staff members. We would be happy to discuss a full time (40 hour week) or part time position.

About our practice

We are a proudly nurturing practice, with a big emphasis on colleague support and continuing development. We are a 10 vet practice, and have a wide range of abilities and strengths; from new graduates to advanced practitioners. We are also incredibly proud of our fantastic, 12 strong, nursing team, and dedicated veterinary care assistants. We are a longstanding nurse training facility and actively encourage all our team members to follow their passions, which has led to a wide range of nurse led clinics and development of patient care.

We have all the usual toys - portable ultrasonography, digital radiography including dental radiography, endoscopy and rigid scopes, extensive in house lab at all sites and are always open to ideas on how to improve the facilities on offer.

If you think Crossroads may be the place for you, then please get in contact to join our fantastic team!
