The role:

Love the pace and adrenalin of emergency work? Working towards a certificate in ECC? Join our passionate, dynamic and caring team at the Medivet Watford 24-hr Hospital.

This busy hospital boasts fully equipped theatres, blood analysis machines, digital radiography, ultrasound, endoscopy, CT and more! Our 5-vet day team has certificate holders in Medicine, Imaging and Surgery. Together with our 12 nurses and care assistants we provide diagnostic workups and management of complex medical and surgical cases to our 16 satellite clinics and beyond.

As a night vet you will provide emergent care for patients presenting after hours, as well as ongoing medical care to our hospitalised patients. You will be supported by a dedicated team including a Registered Veterinary Nurse and Patient Care Assistant.

Salary and hours:

We encourage growth and development within your role and are truly committed to help our Medivet family members achieve their goals!

This role works to a 7-on, 21-off rota (Monday - Sunday, 19:00-09:00) and attracts a very generous remuneration package (depending on experience) plus RCVS, VDS and BVA membership.
