Job Details

The Role

An opportunity not to be missed! This is rare chance to further your career in a practice that has a forward-looking approach whilst maintaining the traditional values of animal care and client trust.

This is a full-time role 4.5 days with a 1:4 weekend rota and time-off in lieu.  We think it essential to provide continuity of care for our patients and offer our own “twilight” OOH cover for emergency cases until 10pm and overnight hospitalisation of any ongoing cases as required, alongside an experienced RVN.

Salary range of £40,000 - £60,000 depending on experience.

About Us

We are a practice with an excellent reputation for providing high quality care and enjoying what we do. We provide a friendly, supportive environment for our staff with a varied caseload along with the capacity to advance and enhance your skills; so, you get the most out of being in general practice. We have got the brains, the training, and the kit: we like to use them.

We are a market-town small animal vet practice with a team of six Veterinary Surgeons (5 FTE), five nurses and two trainee nurses providing first class veterinary care at our main site in Maids Moreton and our branch at Cherry Lane.

The main surgery at Maids Moreton (near Buckingham) is equipped with full diagnostic, laboratory, surgical and hospitalisation facilities. We also like to engage our brains. With this combination it gives us the satisfaction of investigating and treating our patients to the highest clinical standards but with referring to specialists when appropriate. We perform our own cardiac scans, endoscopy (rhinoscopy & otoscopy through to colonoscopy), laparoscopy (90%+ of spays are “keyhole”), fracture repair and stifle TTA’s; and improve the quality of our surgical procedures and outcomes with bipolar diathermy, harmonic scalpels and “Enseal” equipment. Dental x-rays are available at both sites with air-driven equipment, sharp instruments and “Vet-tome” to make “dentals” a pleasure rather than an arduous chore.

Applicant Requirements

We are looking for a capable, charismatic, and highly motivated Veterinary Surgeon. This is the opportunity for either a less experienced applicant to build on their core skills in a supportive environment or for a more experienced applicant to move into a more senior/leadership role in due course.

Ability to work sole charge

Good clinical, inter-personal and communication skills

Capable of handling more complicated consultations and cases

Competent surgical skills (e.g. Caesarean section, pyometra)  

The desire and ability to improve and progress your skills further in general first opinion practice - it doesn’t have to be mundane and can be fun, rewarding and very fulfilling!
