Job Details

Love nights, want a great work-life balance with an attractive rota pattern (7 on/ 14 off) and a competitive salary?

A great career opportunity has arisen to join the friendly team at our busy small animal RCVS accredited hospital in Wanstead, East London.

We provide an excellent first opinion, emergency, critical care and referral service to our clients and local network of 20 branches and work to the highest clinical standards. As a result, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to treat a wide range of patients and conditions.

There is great diagnostic support with a new CT scanner, diploma holders in imaging providing our CT and ultrasound service, a commercial laboratory, a strong medical team and experienced surgeons routinely conducting advanced orthopaedic, soft tissue and minimally invasive surgery all available on site. All the necessary equipment for patient side diagnostic testing is available and RVN and VNA nursing cover is provided throughout the night.

The position would be most suitable for someone with an interest in emergency medicine and surgery. A Certificate holder or someone studying toward a Certificate would be ideal. The successful candidate will be capable of confident mature decision making, whilst dealing with a wide range of medical and emergency surgical cases and will share our philosophy of practising to the highest clinical standards and providing excellent client care.

The rota pattern is 7 nights on and 14 nights off. There is also the potential to cover additional day shifts during the 14 day off period.

In return, we can offer a competitive salary including a generous CPD allowance. The Goddard Veterinary Group sees CPD as an investment in the individual as well as for the practice and is keen to support study for certificate qualifications. We have an excellent benefit package including increasing holiday allowance (up to 6 weeks!), BUPA private health insurance as well as cash back / refunds on many routine medical costs such as dental care, physiotherapy, optician, chiropractic fees etc, 24hr Employee Assistance Programme, generous shopping/ leisure discounts, a cycle to work scheme and more! Attractive accommodation is also available if needed, close to the practice.

Goddard Veterinary Group is a family run practice and was started in 1952 by Arthur Goddard. His son Philip took over the reins in the late ‘90s and remains the practice principal. We are now the largest family-run veterinary practice in the UK and have 44 clinics, 3 hospitals and our own nursing college. We have a great reputation for looking after our staff; 20% of our team have been with us 10 years or more, and we’re proud of our many 5-star reviews on Indeed.

To help you make the most of your time off, Wanstead offers a beautiful high street with a range of pubs, restaurants and shops all within a short walking distance of the practice. Central London, Westfield and Stratford are all easily accessible via the Central Line. Equally the countryside is easily accessible with Epping Forest on our doorstep.

If you’re interested in this rewarding role and working for a well-established independent family-run business, please apply now or call Fiona Stephens for an informal chat.
