Veterinary Surgeon – Dorchester and Weymouth
Job Advert for Vet
The best job in Dorset! A rare opportunity to join a friendly and young team in an expanding small animal practice in Dorset.
Independent vet with no sales targets and complete clinical freedom. Friendly and experienced team of 5 vets, 7 RVN, 2 TVN and 4 receptionists. We are a young partnership who are enthusiastic about providing excellent clinical care whilst making our workplace a great place to be by listening to our staff and changing things for the better.
We are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our experienced team of vets in our two branch independent SA practice. As such we enjoy complete clinical freedom, no sales targets or campaigns. Just us, doing the best for the pets in our care. Our vets enjoy generous CPD and are supported to further their qualifications. Everyone has different interests which complement each other and there is an Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Medicine (Feline).
We have all the usual toys like digital radiography (including hand held dental), referral level ultrasonography, video endoscopy, in house Idexx analysers and air driven dentistry so we can work up cases to a high standard. We also utilise a remote specialist team to support us in our work ups when necessary. We are a Gold Status Cat Friendly Clinic and a rabbit friendly practice as we believe in doing the best for every pet. The practice is recently renovated and we have plans for further expansion this year. We are supported by a fantastic team of RVNs who go above and beyond to keep the practice running. We work a 4 day week and offer 5 weeks holiday with which to enjoy the beautiful Dorset coastline, be that on foot, by horse, by bike, on the water, or simply just going down to beach after work.
Kirsty, a vet who joined just under a year ago says “Castle is a super friendly and fun practice to work at. We all muck in together and are able to provide the highest standard of care to our patients. Clinical freedom and work-life balance are key elements to the ethos here. I’m so glad I took the leap to make the move to Dorset and the last year as flown by”.
