Vet wanted for maternity cover (maybe longer) in very friendly independent, first opinion, three vet small animal surgery, no out of hours, accommodation available.
We are an independent practice at the edge of the beautiful peak district. We are large enough to see a varied case load, yet small enough to develop a personal relationship with many of our lovely clients. Clients, patients and staff are not just a number for us. We have recently expanded into the neighbouring property and gained another purpose built theatre, prep room and x-ray/ultrasound room. Our vets enjoy clinical freedom, but support is at hand at any stage.
Edge of Peak district, perfect if you are into outdoors activities, 1 hour to Manchester, 2 hours to London by train.
The successful candidate will work alongside two experienced vets and would ideally be confident in consultation and routine surgery, although support will be given gladly. We feel that case discussions benefit even the most experienced vet.
Good client communication skills are important, which also means taking the time to listen and explain.
A friendly nature is paramount. We spend a lot of time together at the work place and having a laugh is important. The boss sings a lot during surgeries, join in or use ear plugs!
One of our vets holds a postgraduate certificate in small animal dentistry, so no need to worry about dreaded dentals.
We are ideally looking for someone who could work fulltime around 4 times a week plus every other Saturday, but part time applicants will certainly be considered.
Working hours are 8.30 – 19.00 (last consult 18.30 latest) weekdays and 9.00 – 12.00 on Saturdays. We could be flexible with the rota, so the job might suit working parents. It could be the start of a long and wonderful friendship!

An amazing 6 weeks holiday plus bank holidays
Additional CPD leave
£1500+ CPD allowance
