As a Roving Vet Surgeon, you will thrive within an ever-changing environment; working in our Emergency clinics across the North East of England. Vets Now are at the forefront of emergency and critical care, saving the lives of pets each and every day.

Shifts will be split over the two clinics overall but in blocks of no more than three shifts at a time. Both full-time and part-time contracts will be considered for these positions.

Shift times will vary depending on clinic, day and type (core or back) of shift. Rota pattern will be built sympathetically to travel time across the different clinics and given 3 months in advance.

  • 7 weeks pro rata annual leave
