Job Details

Night vet required for sole charge in our first opinion hospital facility for our new dedicated night service. Will be working 4 shifts on and 8 off. Working alongside a team of 2 fully qualified nurses and one auxiliary nurse.

The Practice

Donaldson’s is an independent practice spread across 6 branches around Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. We are a mixed practice, although the majority of our work is now small animal.

We have a genuinely friendly team atmosphere and have an open door policy, where the owners of the practice work full time and are approachable.
Despite our size and facilities we are not an imitating group and are very much still a first opinion practice. We invest in staff and facilities and are continuing to grow as a group.

We have an on site CT scanner, 2 dogs wards, an exotics ward, isolation facility, cat ward, 8 consulting rooms, ICU, visiting MRI, 5 operating theatres and a dental suite with 2 tables.

The Role

The role is sole charge but there is support available at night if required. You will be supported by two fully qualified nurses and one auxiliary nurse.

  • Hours are between 7.15pm - 7.45am.
  • 4 shifts on and then 8 off.
  • 18 holiday nights a year

Successful Candidate

We are looking for someone who fits in with our ethos of great first opinion work and excellent customer care.

We developed the night service to help our vets, who are currently doing on call, and to provide better care for our in patients.
We are not currently very busy overnight, but we feel the investment in our staff and patients is worth it.

The ideal candidate will also be somebody who will help build and grow our night service further. We would always welcome and invest in ideas on how to do this.

The Package

Obviously this depends on experience, but it will be between £43,000 - 50,000
