Senior Vet Surgeon

Up to £72,000 DOE plus benefits 

 

Join our Emergency and Critical care service in Vets Now Peterborough

Vets Now Peterborough has a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious Vet Surgeon to lead our experienced ECC team. Coupled with a diverse range of cases, the Senior Vet Surgeon will lead from the front in achieving high quality patient care, excellent client care and encourage a team work mentality while nurturing and supporting the careers of our emergency clinicians.

Vets Now are the UK’s leading provider of emergency pet care. Our nationwide network of out-of-hours pet emergency clinics are open through the night, at weekends and on bank holidays, so we’re ready and waiting to provide the care and support to pets and their owners at the time they need it most. 

 

On-going professional development

Our Senior Vet Surgeons are leaders but that doesn't mean their development has to stop once they move into a senior role. Vets Now are committed to investing in the career progression of our people and we expect our Senior Vets to be ambitious in their own journey too. We will support all employees in pursuing a particular interest of choice and offer exceptional mentoring programmes. We make a real impact on the wider profession by driving clinical research and, by joining the Vets Now family, you will be at the forefront of clinical excellence.

 

1:2 weekend rotation and no more than three nights in a row

We recognise a work/life balance is of the utmost importance and this opportunity provides great scope for clinical excellence and career development with adequate time off-shift. The rota pattern will involve 1:2 weekends, a mix of weekday nights, a fair share of bank holidays and no more than three shifts in a row. 

 

What's in it for you?

Recognising hard work is really important to us. Our employees are our greatest asset which is why we offer a first class benefits and rewards package that includes:

  • 7 weeks pro rata annual leave
  • Your birthday as a paid day off
  • Private medical insurance
  • £1875 CPD allowance increasing annually plus 35 paid hours pro rata
  • UK Standard Pension contributions – 5% Employee/3% Employer
  • Professional membership fees
  • Up to 50% discounted staff pet care
