Job Details

Veterinary Surgeon required at Ashleigh Vets, Manchester.

The Role
We have a rare opportunity for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our team here at Ashleigh Vets. We are a busy practice which also sees a lot of exotic patients. This is the ideal role to get a good solid grounding in all aspects of veterinary work (consults and surgeries). You will be working alongside experienced vets during the day, with plenty of people to ask for help and advice. Additional training will also be given – not just in the clinical work, but the “art” of veterinary practice too. The out of house work complements the day work to give a good basis of inpatient care and emergencies. More experienced staff are always on back up, so you are not “on your own”.

About Us
Ashleigh vets has been proudly caring for the pets of south Manchester for the last 50 years and is fortunate to have a lovely client base and good reputation. With easy access to airports, motorways and the city centre it’s an ideal location. Well equipped with usual toys (digital x-rays, video endoscope, ultrasound) we can cater for most patient’s needs. We pride ourselves on giving honest advice to clients and never work in a target driven way.

Here at Ashleigh, we are lucky enough to have a really wonderful team. Everyone looks out for each other and has each other’s back, which makes a good atmosphere. Meet ups outside of work were commonplace when we were allowed! And I’m, sure they will restart once we can, we are keen to encourage a good work/life balance and do what we can to support our staff in this way.
