Job Details

The Role

We have an exciting opportunity for a veterinary surgeon to join our dedicated team here at Mearley Vet Group. The role will be predominantly small animal based however, if the right applicant wished to further their equine experience or perhaps coming from a mixed or equine background wished to continue equine work, we would be happy to incorporate this into the post.

A normal working day would consist of a mix of consult and surgery work. We operate at our Accrington and Clitheroe branches on a daily basis and the rota allows our vets to receive a variety of work across our branches. Pre Covid, we offered clients routine home visits, which is something we hope to resume when restrictions allow however, these are not routinely done at this time.

•    We offer a competitive salary depending on experience!
•    Full and part time applications considered
•    4.5 days per week (8-hour shifts between 8am-7:30pm)
•    No OOH’s
•    1 weekend in 4, Saturday (10am-2pm) and Sunday (10am-1pm)
•    Fantastic benefits package and salary
•    Accommodation maybe available if required
•    A car may also be provided if required

One of our amazing clients even makes us the most delicious homemade cakes every two weeks. How lucky are we!
