Do you want a flexible rota with opportunity to build your own caseload and see an interesting mix of patients? Then we could be the practice for you!

We are looking for an additional veterinary surgeon to grow the team. We are experienced in supporting new grads, and won Vets4pets Graduate Practice of the Year 2019. We also have the caseload to support a certificate for more experienced vets, and have 2 certificate holders and Advanced Practitioners in the team. We can offer a bespoke shift pattern, and if interested in ECC we can include OOH shifts with support if needed.

Northampton Vets4pets is rated “Outstanding” in all six areas by RCVS. We are very proud to have won SPVS Well-being Medium Practice of the Year 2019, and think that we can offer a great work/life balance to our colleagues.

We are located just an hour from London and Birmingham and Milton Keynes is 30 minutes away by car. Northampton has great commuter links with airports within an hour’s drive. If you prefer the country life there are lovely picturesque villages and countryside within 15 minutes of the practice, and the local area has many outstanding schools.

Being a 24-hour hospital practice the caseload is high and variable.

We have a dedicated night team who provide OOH cover for eight other practices as well as working closely with the RSPCA and other local charities. We have built exceptionally strong and trusted relationships with our clients and we are looking for a vet who enjoys this side of the role just as much as the clinical responsibilities.

The JVP is a certificate holder in general practice with 20 years’ experience, and we also have medicine and surgical certificate holders on the team.
