Fancy a break from Brexit? Why not consider a move to a tropical location where English is the first language and MRCVS is recognised for easy registration as a Veterinary surgeon. Singapore is a melting pot of arts, culture, music, the high city life and the old local charm, plus it is the doorstep to amazing weekend travel destinations in South East Asia.
You will work alongside UK and Australian graduates in a predominantly small animal practice that sees exotics with a caseload that is interesting, wide and varied.
