Donaldsons 1The Practice
In many ways we are a traditional mixed practice and we have a friendly work environment. The majority of our vets have been with us since they were at school and we have a very good level of staff retention.
We work hard as a team to provide the best care we can to our patients and help each other. We have a group of young vets currently who do socialise with each other and provide a lot of support for each other.

There are 28 vets, all with varying degrees of experience and interests. This provides a lot of support and means we can all learn off each other.
We are a genuinely friendly group of people and like to think we have a relaxed but productive work environment.

We have a very varied case load and a lot of equipment. All our branches have on site surgical facilities, x-ray and ultrasound. Our main hospital also has 24 hour staff, 6 consulting rooms, 2 dog wards, 1 cat ward, isolation ward, CT scanner, visiting MRI, 5 surgical theatres, dental suite, exotics ward and an intensive care ward.

We also have a dedicated rehab centre that is vet led, and offer a visiting dermatologist and visiting ultrasound experts for difficult cases.

We are very unlikely to have a situation where our facilities are the reason we have to refer.

Values

  • Teamwork
  • Dedication to high quality first opinion work
  • Customer focus - each branch is set up to be the “local practice" for the people in the area. We don't want to be seen as a “group”
  • Strong work ethic

Donaldsons 2The Role

  • All roles must include on call, it is the only way that we can make sure our staff have a bearable system is by sharing it equally. Currently this equates to 1 in 10 on call
  • 4 and a half day week full-time. There is an option to reduce to less days and the salary will drop proportionate with this. Currently we have a mixture of vets working 2 up to 4 and a half days a week. Saturdays and on call remain
  • 1 in 3.5 Saturday mornings
  • 8.15am - 7pm day
  • Half day finishes at 1pm
  • Small animal role only (unless the candidate still wants to do a little bit of mixed)
