Senior Vet Surgeon


Up to £70,000 DOE plus benefits


Join us for a work-life extraordinary


Our Stoke clinic is located within a purpose-built Hospital, with fantastic facilities. To head up this outstanding team, we are seeking an experienced Veterinary Surgeon with a drive for clinical excellence and a passion for mentoring and developing others to join us as a Senior Vet Surgeon.


Together we save pets’ lives


Our Senior Vet Surgeons are leaders. They nurture and support emerging talent and help shape the careers of emergency clinicians. Coupled with a diverse range of cases, a Senior Vet Surgeon in Stoke will lead from the front in achieving high-quality patient care, excellent client care and encourage a teamwork mentality.


Out-of-hours doesn’t mean ALL hours


It is a common misconception that working out-of-hours means you will be working all the time. Our Vets and Nurses find the opposite. Our shifts tend to be longer so you work fewer of them. Based on a full-time role, the Senior Vet in Stoke will work an average of 40 hours per week, This will consist of a mix of clinical shifts and management time.  


Working a mix of weekday nights or backshifts and a fair share of weekends (either days, nights or backs) we will work with you to find the right work/life balance for you. 


This role is advertised as full-time but we are happy to consider part-time.

  • 7 weeks pro rata annual leave
