Veterinary Surgeon - Harlow, Essex, Full Time
Harlow Vets4Pets has an exciting opportunity for a personable and approachable Veterinary Surgeon to join our fabulous and supportive team!
Based on the busy St James Retail Park, the practice is just a 5 minute walk from the train station, a short drive from the M11 J7 and just 20 minutes from Stansted Airport. The practice also offers free onsite parking.
We are a friendly mixed age team who focus on learning, evidence based medicine and co-operation. There is an excellent family vibe through the practice and we will go out of our way to support and assist our team inside and outside of work. We are open to new ideas and try to be the practice our team are proud to call their own. We encourage personal development through CPD and are happy to support study towards certificates for the right individual. We also offer complete clinical freedom.
You will be joining an experienced and established team made up of 3 other Vets, 8 Nurses, 1 VCA and 2 Receptionists. The team benefit from a variety of individual interests including certificate holders in medicine, endoscopy and surgery as well as a member of the nursing team holding an advanced diploma and two with the ISFM Advanced Diploma.
The partner, Garrick, graduated from the University of Pretoria in 2005 and has now spent many years in the UK. He came to us from a practice in Dartford, having enjoyed 2 years with them. Garrick became a partner in the Harlow practice in June 2011. He prefers the medicine side of veterinary work over surgical procedures and achieved his GPCert in Small Animal Medicine in 2013, his GPCert in Endoscopy in 2015 and his PgCert in Small Animal Medicine in 2017 Garrick is now pursuing a GPCert in Exotics to expand his knowledge in small furries and reptiles. He is particularly successful in helping clients to maintain the quality of their pet's life during terminal illness. Ruth qualified as a nurse in 1987 and has been with the practice since 2007 after a varied career. She is passionate about providing a great working environment and a great client experience.
The role would suit a Vet who is comfortable with routine surgical and medical cases but who seeks to expand their skills in more complex cases. A particular interest in medicine or other non-surgical discipline would be an advantage but is not essential! We require Vets with a real client/patient focus and the ability to build strong, long term relationships.
You will also have confidence in your ability, good time management and organisational skills and enjoy working and communicating as part of a team. We are a busy practice therefore you will thrive in a fast paced environment and enjoy the variety that it brings! It is rare for cases to be referred outside of the practice and team members are encouraged and supported to work up their own cases to a high standard.
