Job Details

We are looking for an enthusiastic small animal veterinary surgeon to join the team at our Independent RCVS accredited Veterinary Hospital and Branches based in and around Milton Keynes. Experience would be preferred but we would consider a new graduate.

Milton Keynes 2The Practice
We are an independent, friendly veterinary practice caring solely for small animals with a large team of qualified nurses and 14 experienced vets, including surgical and medical certificate holders who are always ready to share their knowledge and help out the rest of the team. We have regular team meetings to share experiences, and discuss cases. Our Veterinary Hospital is purpose-built and we invest heavily in up-to-date equipment which enables us to work up cases and carry out surgeries not always possible in general practice including TPLOs and ultrasound guided biopsies. All our sites are inspected under the RCVS PSS and we pride ourselves on offering the highest quality care to our patients and clients.

We are the Host Practice for the Vets Now service in our area which means our patients can be cared for overnight without having to be moved and there are no night duties for our staff. A work-life balance is considered essential and our full-time vets work a 4 day week.

Milton Keynes is a modern, spacious town which is surrounded by countryside and boasts large lakes for leisure pursuits whilst also being convenient for shopping and having very quick rail links to London.

The RoleMilton Keynes 1
The job would be based at the hospital and one of our branches and consist of both consulting and surgical time. A full-time vet would work a 4 day week with no night duties and 1 in 3 Saturday mornings.

Successful Candidate
We would like to find someone who enjoys general practice, can carry out routine surgery to a good standard and is able to demonstrate good consulting skills. Excellent communication and people skills are essential in order to establish a good client base and provide continuity of care. Ideally we would prefer someone with experience (2-3years+) but we have sufficient experienced vets to be able to mentor and guide a younger vet so a new graduate would not be short of support and good interpersonal skills would be highly valued in place of experience.

The Package

  • 5 weeks holiday
  • Time off for CPD and CPD budget
  • RCVS and VDS fees paid
  • BVA membership
  • Competitive salary (commensurate with experience)
