Contact Details

Ardmore6 vet independent small animal practice with great support and nursing team in fantastic location.

The Practice

An IFSM and RCVS accredited practice and nurse training centre, our nurses being trained by our own ‘home-grown’ qualified nurses. The nurses provide good support for both our inpatients and surgical cases as well as through nurse clinics (post op checks, puppy/kitten clinics, nail clips, anal glands and weight clinics). They also are involved with the vets in rounds to ensure good case continuity.  We are lucky to have good referral support as well as visiting surgical specialists. The practice is based in Sudbury, a lovely market town surrounded by beautiful countryside and villages but only 45mins from Stansted and 1 hour from Cambridge by car and 1hr20mins from London by train. The water meadows across the road provide for great dog walking or a run at lunchtime and SUP/canoeing on days off and summer evenings.  Our branch surgery is in Great Yeldham, about 25mins away.

The Role

We are looking for a vet to join our friendly team to work at our Sudbury branch -/+ the Yeldham branch, depending on experience and confidence (we like to support our less experienced vets so they wouldn’t work at a branch in sole charge –not good for their development or the clients).
One set operating day a week, but the opportunity to operate on other days too.

  • 1 in 5 on-call rota, with less experienced vets supported by Richard and Simon.
  • 1 day off a week.15 minute consults, though currently longer with the Covid closed door policy.
  • Equipped with the usual kit that you would expect such as dental x-ray

Successful Candidate
We are looking for an enthusiastic vet with good communication skills to join and work as part of our friendly team. We have a loyal client base and case continuity is encouraged to grow your own ‘following’. Experience preferred but full support will be given to a less experienced colleague to develop and grow. Particular interests, such as imaging or orthopaedic surgery, are welcomed or can be developed but the role would also suit an aspiring all round general practitioner interested in developing their skills and their relationship with our clients and their pets.

The Package

  • RCVS and VDS membership funded
  • Fully funded CPD and allocated time 
  • 5 weeks holiday
  • Competitive salary, based on experience
  • Full time position but would consider job share/part time
