Veterinary Surgeon required at Oakham Veterinary Hospital - Oakham, Rutland!

The role

We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic veterinary surgeon to join our progressive small animal hospital. Supported by a team of friendly colleagues, in house laboratory and dedicated lab technician, all the usual toys plus CT, you will be able to work cases up to a high standard. Our aim is to provide our clients and patients with gold standard care with an emphasis on case continuity. With a focus on personal and professional development, CPD is encouraged and funded.

About Us

Situated in beautiful Rutland, Oakham Veterinary Hospital is a long established single site equine and small animal practice. Our well equipped, purpose built premises and Tier 3 Hospital status mean that we are able to work cases up to a high standard.
