Job Details

We are looking for a full-time veterinary surgeon with UK clinical experience, ideally with an interest in orthopaedics and exotics. The position will involve consulting, working up cases both medical and surgical and routine operations. We would also be keen to hear from candidates who are interested in senior/clinical director positions.

We are currently an RCVS accredited, two veterinary surgeon soon to be three, small animal practice in Colchester that is located within easy access to London and the beautiful Essex coastline, just a stones throw from Mersea Island in fact!

We also have access to a mobile specialist cardiologist, ultrasonographer and orthopaedic surgeon allowing you to manage cases predominantly in house. Equally we are located within a reasonable distance from many excellent referral centres and have access to CT and MRI scanners locally.

We have a varied case load including treating exotics and an interest in behavioural medicine. This has led to our fear free approach to patients in practice and we would want our new colleague to become familiar with this regime. We can provide tea, cake, and lots of fun if you join our quirky team! Our practice ethos is to be kind, caring, and compassionate to our patients, clients, and colleagues.

Company

Paws Colchester Veterinary Centre welcomes all pets and their owners. We are a small family run business, and are therefore able to offer truly personal care to all of our patients and clients. Maryanne, Aimee and our other highly qualified team are passionate about our patient's welfare and health.

Feliway and Adaptil diffusers are used in the practice which release pheromones to relax your pets and we have Feliway covers available in reception to cover our cats in baskets that may be anxious. There are lots of treats to make your loved ones feel welcome!
