We have an exciting opportunity for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our busy group of practices. You’ll be working between one or two of our sites, along with time at our Thornbury hospital. The successful candidate will work alongside our diverse and highly experience team to provide a high level of care for our patients. You’ll be required to take part in all aspects of first opinion practice, from routine operations and consultations. We offer a varied caseload of medicine and surgery. This role will require elements of sole charge, so we’re looking for a candidate that’s confident enough with this. Our excellent facilities have enabled us to host Vets Now in our Hospital building so there is a 1:4 Saturday morning rota, but no further weekend or other out of hours involvement.

Flexible working that offers real flex

We offer flexible working patterns that flex with you and your lifestyle. Whether you are looking to flex your rota hours to balance the school holidays, flex to navigate the school runs or just looking to strike that balance between home and work life. We can offer flexibility that actually works for you. A standard full-time vet within our team generally works 40 hours per week over 5 days, having said this, we’re more than happy to support different hours/ rotas, whether that’s full or part time depending on what works for you.

Excellent facilities, along with a highly experienced team

We have our own hospital facilities and 5 branch surgeries. Thornbury is a tier 3 RCVS accredited hospital and is an ISFM gold standard cat friendly practice. We are a nurse training practice. Our experienced team include several certificate holders in ECC, Ophthalmology and Surgery. Many of our nurses have advanced qualifications as well, allowing us to deal with a wide variety of both medical and surgical cases in house. Our other sites are in Armley, Horsforth, Morley, Meanwood and Birkenshaw. They are well equipped to do most day care surgery cases. Some have ISFM Silver status with RVN consulting days. All have good support staff teams and appropriate facilities. We are close to Leeds and Bradford, if it is city life that interests you, and close to the Yorkshire Dales for those with outdoor passions. We are also based only a few miles away from Leeds Bradford Airport. We have 14-day vets, a dedicated admin team, 10 RVNs, along with nursing assistants and reception staff at the branches. In the Hospital we have dental X-rays, separate soft tissue and orthopaedic theatres, the facilities for laparoscopic spays, ultrasound and endoscopy room and even an operating microscope

Here is what the team have to say about life in practice:

- “One of the major benefits of working for Yorkshire Vets is it’s incredibly dedicated and caring team of vets, nurses and support staff. Since my very first day, I have been made to feel a welcomed part of the family and this supportive environment makes Yorkshire Vets a uniquely pleasant and enriching place to work. We all know that the veterinary industry can be extremely challenging at times but working with such a great team of people makes all the difference on those inevitable tough days. All of our surgeries are modern and well-equipped and patient care is always paramount. I can’t think of a better place to work... which is why I’m still here after 6 years and counting.” - Billie, Veterinary Surgeon.

Company

As one of the leading veterinary groups in Leeds and Bradford, we at Yorkshire Vets pride ourselves on the high level of care, compassion and service that we provide for you and your pets.

Yorkshire Vets is exclusively owned and run by practicing vets living in the local area, so we are fully aware of the value that an approachable and local vet surgery can have to the local community, which is why we have first opinion veterinary surgeries across the region, providing all of the day to day facilities and services that you would expect from a local veterinarian.

We are also aware that sometimes your pet will require treatment and facilities that are not viable within a smaller vet practice, which is why we operate our own centralised RCVS accredited hospital facility, providing the cutting edge facilities and services you would expect from a modern veterinary hospital to all of our clients across the region.

Our Thornbury hospital, on the Leeds and Bradford border, also provides our own dedicated 24 hour emergency service, so that your pet is sure to receive the best treatment at any time it is needed.
