Job Details

Surgery Information / Job Description

We here at Newport Vets4Pets are not just about finding the correct candidate with the right clinical skills. We also want someone with the right personality to fit in with our team. We want to ensure that we recruit for the long-term. This means that whilst it is very important to us that the right person is professional and has the right work attitude, equally the right colleague must be able to take and give out banter, not be easily offended and most importantly, when not working, not take life too seriously. So if you have good people skills, are prepared to work and play hard and enjoy your work then you are what we are looking for.  

Our centrally-located practice opened in 2008 and has gone from strength to strength, maintaining an excellent reputation amongst the local community and a diverse, loyal client base. By joining us, you will play a key part in upholding this reputation as well as helping us to grow even more.

Practice Owner, Paul McCarthy, a 1999 RVC graduate, is an experienced and driven vet. Paul leads a supportive team of 5 vets, 5 nurses, and 5 receptionists. We are a training practice with a wealth of experience in developing colleagues and you will benefit from the knowledge of our entire team, including our skilled Vets and Head RVN, who also holds a certificate in anaesthesia.

Visit our website to find out even more about our team.

The surgery boasts a range of equipment including Pro-cyte and analyser, microscopy, separate theatre, cat and dog kennels, capnography, digital x-ray processor, ultra-sound, ECG and BP machine. You’ll have ample opportunities to work up cases; being an established practice, we see a whole range of medical and surgical cases, and refer very few!

Person Specification

Our ideal new vet will be confident in consulting and all routine surgeries, with a desire to continue to learn and grow in the profession. A keen and welcoming attitude and the enthusiasm to help expand our established client base are also very important.

You’ll enjoy a great work-life balance, working 41 hours per week, including just 1 in 5 Saturday mornings, with no OOH or on-call!


In return for your hard work and great attitude, we can offer a supportive and friendly working environment together with career development opportunities, an excellent package and benefits that include a competitive salary, generous CPD allowance - which is extremely encouraged, as well as lots of exclusive company discounts and rewards.
