A work life more inspiring at Vets Now Chesterfield

We have an opportunity in Chesterfield, via our Cutting Edge programme, for a Vet Surgeon with a keen interest in emergency and critical care. Our Chesterfield clinic has a steady, varied caseload – perfect for continued development. Working on average 40 hours per week over 3 shifts, our rota patterns have been designed with work-life balance at the heart of them. You will work no more than 3 shifts in a row and we aim to build in an extended period of time off every month which maximises your ability to pursue your other interests.

Cutting Edge - your first step into Emergency and Critical Care

At Vets Now, we are committed to the development of the next generation of the veterinary profession. That’s why we heavily invest in our induction programmes to support new Vet Surgeons in discovering a route into emergency practice. With CPD-led training, Cutting Edge is designed for Vet Surgeons looking to take their first steps into ECC and will equip you with the skills and confidence needed to thrive in emergency practice.

300 hours of CPD designed and delivered by experts

Delivered by world renowned experts in their field over a ten week period, Cutting Edge combines lectures, interactive seminars, practical training and surgery with the opportunity to work alongside experienced clinicians for four weeks. The programme is a great way for you to meet likeminded Vet Surgeons and expand your network of emergency clinicians. Topics covered include but are not limited to:

  • Abdominal Surgery
  • Blood Smears
  • Emergency Diagnostics
  • Neurological Emergencies
  • Orthopaedic and Spinal Emergencies
  • Practical Ultrasound
  • Suturing Skills
