Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon - East Sussex
Come and further your career in a well-established independent small animal practice with a friendly team of experienced vets in sunny Sussex.
Senlac Veterinary Centre is a vibrant independent practice with strong links to our local community. Our low level of staff turnover helps to foster a supportive family atmosphere, reflected in our long-standing and loyal client base.
Our fully-equipped main clinic offers a full range of medical and surgical facilities on-site, so you can be assured of good clinical back-up from one of our 8-vet team (6 FTE) whenever required. We have a branch surgery in the nearby village of Robertsbridge.
This is a small animal post, with a varied patient list including some lovely backyard hens. Our vets have a flexible rota including 15-minute consultations, one operating day each week, and occasional home visits; these roles can be adapted to allow good case continuity and to help build confidence for less-experienced candidates. We are keen to encourage young vets; we can offer a dedicated experienced vet to mentor and support if you desire. You will have access to a varied caseload and the clinical freedom that independent practice can offer.
We offer a 4-day working week, with two days 9am-5pm, the other two finishing at 6.30/7pm. We are proud that we cover our own out-of-hours, consisting of 1-in-5 weekends, and one night on call in 5. There will, of course, be back-up support available from an experienced vet if needed. We offer a generous CPD allowance, with encouragement for further development if desired. Professional fees paid. There is accommodation available as part of a generous negotiable package; salary £32-50K dependent on experience. Strong mentoring in place from our welcoming team.
The 4-day working week allows plenty of time off to enjoy our beautiful Sussex coastline and countryside. We are in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and just a few miles from the sea. Battle is a historic market town with good transport links to London, and close to the towns of Hastings and Tunbridge Wells.
