Job Details

Are you a passionate Veterinary Surgeon looking for more flexibility? Would you like more time to spend with family or pursue other interests? 

Join our fantastic regional team as a  Veterinary Surgeon and play a crucial part within the Medivet family! 

This role will see you working both sole charge and within a team, providing different practice environments and allowing you to gain exposure to varied surgeries and learn from a diverse team of veterinary professionals.

Here, you will create a large connection of colleagues, working together and sharing knowledge to deliver outstanding service and care for our clients and patients! 

The role:

We are seeking friendly, fun down to earth colleagues who are passionate about people and their pets but also value work life balance to join us in the Southend 1 region. 

Southend 1 region is made of eight clinics including Southend 24-Hour Hospital, Chelmsford, Danbury, Laindon, Wickford, Rayleigh and South Woodham Ferrers. 

We are passionate about cultivating an environment where colleagues support each other through sharing skills and knowledge to give our patients the best outcomes. We are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon with at least one year of UK (or UK equivalent) experience to support our practices in this role.

Working hours, Salary and Benefits

This role works 7 days on followed by 14 days off, working on average 23.33 hours per week and includes some Saturdays.  Hours 09:00-19:00.  You will be working 17 weeks/year!

This role offers a competitive salary of up to £55,000 pro-rata, CPD allowance, RCVS, VDS and BVA membership fees paid.

We have free regional and area monthly CPD events plus you'll have access to our unique, industry leading Fuse learning and development platform, plus funding for certificates offered. 


This role will support our practices in our Southend region and the rota will reflect the needs of the region e.g. you may be covering a couple of the practices for one week and this will be communicated accordingly.

Southend is the region's 24-Hour Hospital. It's a bright, spacious hospital, complete with digital  x-ray, ultrasound, bronchoscope and endoscope, blood pressure machine, ECG, full lab including microscope, haematology and biochemistry analyser, plus CT scanner. We also have a dedicated, on site, ultrasonographer/imaging vet.  

The branch clinics are also well equipped with digital x-ray, ultrasound and ECG. Our unique hub and spoke model facilitates equipment and knowledge sharing across the area and so you are able to follow your own cases through to completion achieving gold standard care.  


We’re a family of passionate veterinary professionals committed to providing truly exceptional care.

We’re always looking for people who aspire to stand out in their field, and it’s this vision and enthusiasm that forms the foundation of how we work.

In everything we do, we work together and look out for each other. We’re all working towards the same goal: exceptional care.

Our people support each other within practices and across regions, and our clinicians work closely with our Support Centre colleagues – forming one team made of many teams. We work hard together but socialise, too. We’re proud that our community fosters strong bonds and friendships.

All our people are warmly encouraged to get involved in shaping the business, to consider becoming partners, or move into management roles. Every day, there’s a chance to have an impact on this business in its exciting growth phase.

Search our opportunities and apply today to become part of our family.
