Our fantastic vet Michael has been lured away to academia, so we are looking for a second vet to work full-time alongside our very experienced senior vet at our practice in Uxbridge, West London. Lovely supportive friendly team! This is an ideal opportunity for an enthusiastic vet wishing to progress their career.
Uxbridge is a well-established practice with good local amenities, close to Uxbridge town centre but also easy access to the lovely surrounding countryside. The practice has dental x-ray and a brand-new ultrasound machine, so could support someone developing an interest in imaging.
The role involves a small amount of sole charge so is not suitable for a brand new graduate; however, support is very close by from our main hospital in Northolt complete with CT, imaging suite and an array of specialists. You will also be supported by an experienced nursing team and dedicated receptionist.
The current rota includes alternate Fridays off and a half day every Tuesday. There is no night work or on call as emergencies are covered by the dedicated OOH team at the Mandeville. Also, be part of the hospital team at this state-of-the-art hospital on a 1:8 Sunday day time rota.
There is an excellent salary on offer and accommodation if required. Our CPD allowance is £2000 with 5 days paid CPD per year. 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 a great 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., plus generous shopping and leisure discounts, cycle to work scheme, 24- hour employee assistance programme and more!
Uxbridge is a great place to live and work; well served by the Metropolitan and Piccadilly tube lines and is close to the M40 and M25 motorways and Heathrow airport.
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 have a great reputation for looking after our staff; over 20% of our team have been with us 10 years or more and we are proud of our many 5-star reviews on Indeed.
