Surgery Information / Job Description

James and Emma are recruiting for an approachable and confident veterinary surgeon to join their friendly team based in Crawley, West Sussex. 

This is a fantastic chance to work within a supportive practice with an established client base. We are located inside a Pets at Home store which is placed on the side of a retail park with Costa, Next and TKmaxx, M&S and Tesco all within walking distance. We have ample parking in front of the practice and there are good links to public transport if required. Gatwick is within a 15 minute commute and you can be in London within 40 minutes on the train.

You will be joining a friendly and passionate team consisting of 6 vets, 6 nurses, 2 VCAs and 6 receptionist plus one client care manager that help us to deliver the best care and service possible to our clients. Partners Emma Clarke RVN graduated from University of Bristol in 2011 and James Fowler MRCVS, qualified in 2000 from University of Edinburgh. 

The team hold a variety of interests including Head Vet Sara with a Certificate in Small Animal Oncology and is about to start a certificate in Diagnostic Imaging and 2 other vets that are finishing an Emergency and Critical Care certificate. Emma has a Rabbit nursing diploma and a diploma in emergency and critical care, and James has a Certificate in Small Animal Medicine but he does have an interest in surgery ad exotics as well.

Person Specification

James and Emma are hugely supportive of ongoing development and happy to support areas of individual interest, and due to the experience within the existing team, they can consider experienced as well as recently qualified Vets. 

You will be approachable and recognise the importance of building trusted relationships with your patients, clients and colleagues. Experienced vets will feel confident with routine surgical and medical cases and newly qualified vets will be keen to learn and put the theory into practice. The practice offers clinical freedom and the opportunity to work with a varied and loyal client base, working up cases to a high standard. 

This is a full time position, 40 hours per week, over a 4 day rota with one fixed day off. Weekends are on a 1.5 every 5 weeks (one full weekend plus one Saturday). Part time hours can be considered with a minimal requirement 30 hours per week.


You will be working from a practice that is purpose built and well equipped with the usual tools such as capnography, ECG, biochemistry and haematology in house, digital radiography and ultrasound machine. We are very fortunate to have separate waiting areas for cats and dogs as well as separate kennels at the back. The majority of our clients are insured allowing us the freedom to offer gold standard treatment and to work up our cases as much as possible.

In return, James and Emma offer: 
• Excellent career opportunities 
• Competitive salary dependent on experience 
• Enhanced annual leave 
• Contributory pension scheme 
• Supportive and friendly team environment
• Generous CPD of up £1000 per annum 
• Paid memberships (RCVS, BVA, VDS)
