The RSPCA is the largest animal welfare charity in England and Wales. Our purpose is to end cruelty and promote kindness to animals and to alleviate their suffering.

The Putney Animal Hospital provides frontline veterinary services for animals that are most in need. Animals are presented at the Hospital by eligible owners and by RSPCA Inspectors and Animal Collection Officers.

This role offers an exciting and varied small animal caseload, working alongside experienced vets within a supportive team environment. This is an excellent career opportunity for a small animal vet to increase their clinical expertise in all aspects of small animal surgery and medicine. 

The role is ideally suited to a confident, enthusiastic candidate with a willingness to “get stuck in” and an ability to work well under pressure.  Good team working and excellent communication skills are vital due to the shared responsibilities of the role.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Performing consultations and treatment of owned and unowned animals. 
  • Undertaking a wide variety of surgical procedures for the animals in our care. 
  • Providing veterinary opinion on prosecution cases (training provided).
  • Sole charge consultation and minor surgery at our recently refurbished Southall clinic.
  • Reasonable night and weekend OOH rota (1:8 pro rata with good compensatory rest).
  • A willingness to be filmed for media work is an advantage.

You’ll have:

  • Membership of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. 
  • Previous clinical experience preferable. 

What’s in it for you:
You’ll have an opportunity to work for the largest animal welfare charity in England and Wales.

  • 35 hours standard working week
  • 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays increasing to 30 days with service (pro rata for part time)
