Surgery Information / Job Description
We have an exciting opportunity for a full-time, experienced veterinary surgeon to join our friendly and well-established team at our modern practice in Selby.

Located just south of York, Selby is easily commutable from Leeds and benefits from great transport links. We are just 10 minutes from the M62 and enjoy excellent train and bus services.

The practice boasts state-of-the-art equipment and has been awarded both Silver cat friendly status and rabbit friendly status.

Person Specification
You will be joining a small, friendly team of 1 other vet, 3 nurses, 2 receptionists and a practice manager. We pride ourselves on excellent patient and customer care, as well as being great team-players, which we believe is crucial to a successful happy working environment. We also actively support the local charities and any animal-related community events.

If you’re keen to grow and develop, we want to support this and can offer a very generous CPD budget. Funding of a certificate is a real possibility for the right candidate.

Our new colleague will work full time (40 hours) over 4 week days, with one in 3 Saturdays on a rota basis – but no OOH.

As we are a first opinion practice, you will need excellent surgical and medical skills and there will be occasional sole charge. We want you to have a real input in the practice to help us be at the forefront of clinical thinking, while maintaining our ethos of putting pets first.

In return, we can offer:

  • Competitive salary
  • Professional membership paid for (RCVS, BSAVA, BVA, VDS)
  • Career progression
  • Supportive and friendly team
  • No OOHs
  • Exclusive discounts and benefits

You will be joining a practice where our veterinary partner has full clinical freedom with the support and benefits of working for the vet group.

Meet Vets4Pets

We put pets first

Beyond all else, we’re committed to animal health and welfare, and we absolutely put pets first. The most powerful partnerships we have are with pets and their owners. This is at the heart of what we do and always will be.

Vets4Pets Northampton Wins Vet Wellbeing Award

Colleague mental health and wellbeing have always been highly important to Jenny Millington and Sally Courtney of Vets4Pets Northampton. So much so, that during the past 12 months, they and their colleagues have implemented a number of fantastic initiatives to support in this area. These efforts have resulted in the practice recently receiving the 2019 Vet Wellbeing Award, medium-sized practice category, from the Society of Practising Vets (SPVS), in partnership with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons’ (RCVS) Mind Matters Initiative.

We help our nurse colleagues thrive

We know first-hand the tremendous contribution vet nurses make to the smooth running of a practice and to animal health and welfare. We’re therefore committed to recognising and celebrating these contributions and to providing our nurse colleagues with learning opportunities specific to them. Our annual Vet Nurses Conference (a Vets4Pets-only event) offers a full day of industry-leading CPD.

We are very much aiming to be an association where people can seek support for themselves and others and where employers and groups and other associations can seek support from us regarding the promotion of diversity and inclusion.
