Job Details

We are looking for a full time veterinary surgeon, who can come and hit the ground running in our small but busy practice. Preferably you will have experience and be competent with routine neutering surgically and happy to consult independently. A medicine bias is preferable but not essential. The average week is a 5 day week with a mixture of 7pm, 6pm and 5pm finishes with no sole charge. There is sole charge 1 in 5 weekends (8 am to 4 pm Saturday and 10 am to 1 pm Sunday) although there is phone back up and we do all support each other frequently. After working the weekend you receive Thursday and Friday off in Lieu.

We are a small but busy practice located on the beautiful Hampshire coastline, enjoying the tranquillity of small town life whilst being located between two major cities, Southampton and Portsmouth. We pride ourselves on our preventative medicine and aiming to provide gold standard care, being able to offer many in-house procedures than would normal require costly referral. We have a friendly, compassionate, supportive team of vets and nurses, who regularly enjoy social events together outside of work (except during COVID pandemics!). In terms of toys we have: ultrasound, cardiac ultrasound, DR radiography, Dental radiography, Endoscopy, Bronchoscopy, Rhinoscopy, Laparoscopic surgery, surgical laser, 4 Anaesthetic monitors, Orthopaedic equipment, MMP kits and SOP kits.

We are looking for a candidate with experience in the UK in small animal practice. The candidate would preferably have a medicine bias but be comfortable with routine neutering procedures and happy to consult unassisted. We are looking for a candidate who can come in and hit the ground running in our busy practice. Being friendly and a good communicator with a can do attitude is a must.
