Would you like to be part of a progressive and growing team? Do you have an interest in orthopaedic surgery and are looking to learn on the job? If so, we have the perfect opportunity for you at Sittingbourne Vets4Pets!
We are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our supportive and thoughtful team, who strive to offer the best standards of care to their clients and their pets.
We are a busy first opinion small animal practice based in an up and coming town in Kent, with excellent transport links to London and the south coast, and plenty of open spaces and countryside.
Our bright and spacious surgery is purpose built to industry leading standards and has state of the art equipment including digital X-ray, ultrasound, in house lab and orthopaedic equipment.
You will be working alongside 2 full time vets, and a visiting vet who performs orthopaedic operations along with other interesting surgeries. Our team are led by Partners Grace Phillips and Rachael Hughes. Grace graduated from RVC in 2015 and worked within a busy small animal practice for 2 years before opening Sittingbourne. Whilst Rachael qualified in 2006 as an RVN and has also worked in small animal practices and veterinary hospitals.
We are looking for someone confident, friendly and enthusiastic with great communication skills. You’ll have good general small animal surgical and medical abilities and a desire to learn and improve. We have a varied caseload and you should be flexible and work well under pressure. Animal welfare is important to us, and you should share the same ethos.
The role is full or part time due to flexibility within the team and will include weekends on a 1 in 3 rota basis and no OOHs. Flexible working is readily available with school hours an option. There will be occasional sole charge, but only once you are comfortable with this. This role would suit an experienced vet looking to upskill, or a new challenge, or a recent graduate who is looking for a supportive environment and demonstrates eagerness to learn. There is also the ability to be consult only if this is preferred.
As you would expect from the market leader in small animal veterinary care, we offer:
- Excellent career opportunities and development due to our varied case load
- Competitive salary commensurate with experience
- Contributory pension scheme
- Generous CPD
- Funding of certificates for the right candidate

This is a great opportunity to be part of a fun, hardworking and motivated team, offering the chance to develop your own specialisms in a supportive environment. If we sound like a team you’d like to be a part of, we would love to hear from you!
