Job Details

Friendly competent vet to work within a small team at an independent practice. Freedom to work up cases and explore own interests.

The Practice

Independent genuinely family run practice. Matt started the practice almost 2 years ago to genuinely try and provide an enjoyable place to work and a friendly welcoming environment for clients and patients. The client base is growing fast and we are now looking for a third vet to join the team with 10 support staff. The genuine goal here is that patients, staff and clients are all happy Cornish Paws, in that order. All members of the team welcomed as family and generous renumeration provided. No corporate targets and a special focus on reducing the stress of visits for patients. During COVID-19 all clients have been kept outside (we have a huge amount of outside space including an enclosed courtyard), all appointment times were doubled to 30minutes without any increase in fees. We have built an undercover area in the courtyard and installed a reception window to outside with a perspex cover.

The Role

We are looking for an experienced GP to join the team. There will still remain plenty of clinical support within the team where needed. Individual interests actively encouraged. There is complete freedom to work up cases properly and time provided in order to do this. We really focus on client continuity.

Successful Candidate

We are looking for competency in general medicine and surgery although happy to provide support in individual areas. The successful candidate must be an excellent team player and be very good at communicating with clients. Time is provided to spend with clients to ensure they get the best possible service and treatment for their pets. We have an excellent reputation for a fair and honest service and this must be maintained.

The Package

CPD allowance is not capped abut should be of benefit to the practice. Staff discount here is always cost plus vat on all things. Salary is both experience dependent and dependent on hours worked (whilst we would prefer a full time applicant, part-time will be considered). We are happy to offer a generous salary and to discuss this with any interested applicants. It is very important to us that all staff feel they are very happy with package provided and support given. We are happy for any interested applicants to talk to anyone within our team to get a feel for how we look after our staff. This is a very different proposition when compared with corporate employment.
