Black rock vets is a friendly, long standing, independent small animal practice in Burnham on Sea, Somerset. We are currently seeking a full or part time vet, with at least two years of experience to join us. As a practice, we aim to provide the highest level of customer and patient care, treating our patients as if they were our own, and will provide you with the time and support to work your cases up thoroughly. We are a three vet, three nurse and two reception team, also covering our own out of hours. You would be working a 2 to 4 day week and be part of a 1:3 rota, but that will change to 1:4 before the end of this year. You will also receive an extra day off after your weekend on call. Your initial role will be to provide maternity cover, and once that vet returns, we will be able to grow to a 4 vet team.
You will be an enthusiastic person, with a strong focus on patient and client care, and want to build strong client bonds. You will be supported by a clinical team who will encourage and support you to grow, and assist to focus in the field of your passion. You will ideally have a driving licence.
We have a second consulting only branch near Bridgwater, and have secured a similar site near to Weston super Mare, which will open in the coming New Year. We are also very proud to be RCVS accredited to General Practice, and are also awaiting a Gold award from the RCVS for customer experience. And we have Gold Cat Friendly status and we are Silver Rabbit Friendly.
We always promote gold standard treatment for our patients, with responsible use of antibiotics and minimum 15 minute appointments. We also have an array of in house diagnostic equipment, including an Idexx lab station with biochemistry and haematology analyser’s, automated urine analyser, microscope, CR radiography which includes dental facilities and a colour Doppler ultrasound. We are currently using Vet IT practice management system, but are in the process of changing to Idexx Animana.
We are happy to fund CPD up to £1200 per year, plus lot’s of in house CPD through partner companies. 5 weeks annual leave. RCVS & VDS fees covered. Sponsorship available should that be needed. There is also a flat at the practice which is available for you to use on arrival. Discounted vet fees.
And a very happy work atmosphere within the team.
Excellent salary to the right candidate, and long term opportunities.
