hawthorn 1We are seeking a small animal veterinary surgeon for 3-4 days per week with no OOH in an independent, well equipped practice.

The Practice
Hawthorn Vets is an independent, family run, two site, small animal practice with friendly team who are very client focused. The practice is highly regarded in the area  and well equipped to deliver the high standards of care that we aspire to offer, including: a brand new 3 probe ultrasound scanner, our new digital x-ray system was installed in 2016, a full Idexx lab suite including sedivue and up to date anaesthetic monitoring equipment including capnography and multiparameter monitor. We are located in a lovely, semi-rural, area of West Sussex within 30mins of both Gatwick and Brighton.

hawthorn 2The Role
The role is a “GP” position mainly based at our main site in Partridge Green which means there is plenty of opportunity to discuss cases with other vets etc. If you are someone looking to specialise, this is encouraged and supported – both a surgical or medical bias can be accommodated. The role is available due to one of our vets going on Maternity leave, however, due to growth we would also consider a permanent part-time position for the right candidate!

During the period of Maternity leave (March 2019 onwards), we could accommodate either a 4 day (full time) or 3 day week. A permanent, part-time position would constitute a 3 day week. We offer a good balance of consulting and surgery with every vet having time to follow up and work up their own cases each day, each vet also has an “operating morning” with no consults. The longest consulting session is 2 hours. The Saturday rota is 1 in 4 Saturdays. Outside of our opening hours, calls are handled by a dedicated OOH provider.

The role provides a good work-life balance with plenty of scope for clinical freedom and the opportunity to enjoy the local area and any out of work pursuits that you may desire!

hawthorn 3Successful Candidate
We are looking for a veterinary surgeon with good communication skills, who is client focused and who enjoys working up cases to a high standard. Some experience is preferred as well as confidence in routine surgical procedures.

The Package
5 weeks holiday + bank holidays, £1500 and 5 days CPD (pro rata for part time), salary £30-60k (based on experience and days worked)
