Job Details

Tier 3 Hospital Veterinary Surgeon opportunity in Leeds!
A rare opportunity to join one of the leading small animal hospitals in the North of England has arisen and we are keen to hear from vets with an interest in either surgery or medicine. Due to continued expansion, there are several positions to be filled within the main tier 3 hospital or split between the hospital and branch sites (to suit your preference).

All positions are based on a 4-day week and no OOH - which is covered by a dedicated night team (great for both work life balance and case continuity!). We are also open to considering those looking for a part time position.

The hospital itself is situated in the heart of West Yorkshire and has good transport links to both Leeds City Centre and Manchester. It has all the equipment you would expect in a large RCVS accredited tier 3 hospital including: four sterile operating theatres, digital X-ray, CT Scanner, ultrasound Scanners, flexible and rigid endoscopes, on-site laboratory, intensive care unit, oncology suit, dental room, MRI scanner, ophthalmology equipment and much more.

Not only will the successful applicant have access to all of this state-of-the-art equipment, but you will also get to work alongside specialists and certificate holders in various disciplines, including orthopaedic surgery, radiography and ophthalmology.

The successful applicant will need to have a minimum of 2 years UK experience and ideally have (or be working towards) a certificate (though this is not essential). More importantly, you must be passionate about providing the highest level of care to your patients and their owners and be able to build good relationships with clients and colleagues alike.

In return, you will be offered a competitive salary in recognition of previous experience, support and guidance to pursue your own area of interest through CPD and certificate study, a great work life balance and the opportunity to part of a nationally recognised group with an excellent reputation.
