We have lots of great roles for those who share our values
We are seeking a Veterinary Surgeon to join our team at Medivet Dover (Burnham House).

If you are on-call, this will cover from Friday evening (7pm) until Monday morning (9am). You will also be required to attend the practice on Saturday (9am-1pm) and Sunday (9.30am-10am to cover the drop-in clinic).
Salary & Benefits:
A very competitive package of up to £50,000 per annum (depending on experience), which includes accommodation allowance and a vehicle or vehicle allowance
£1,500 CPD allowance with 3 days CPD leave, and in-house CPD training
