Job Details

Lead Veterinary Surgeon - Lichfield Vets4Pets, Staffordshire

Job Description

We have a unique opportunity within our West Midlands Vets4Pets family for a Lead Veterinary Surgeon to join us at our practice in Lichfield. This is a great opportunity to lead and inspire the current team whilst being instrumental in the direction the practice takes.

This role is the perfect stepping stone to partnership or a great chance for an experienced vet to progress into a leadership role. If desired, you will have the opportunity to experience running a practice (in a superb location) as if it were your own, but with the support of an established and successful group network.

The surgery is set within one of our Pets at Home stores so it is purpose built to deliver the highest clinical standards, already having a loyal client base with the potential for further growth.  

We’re looking for a vet with strong small animal experience, gained as a general practitioner, as well as excellent people skills. Specialist interests and postgraduate qualifications (or a wish to gain them) are welcomed and supported with our generous CPD allowance but are not necessary to the role.

Locally, you will be supported by Gabriel Wax. Gabriel graduated over 20 years ago in Italy and opened his first practice in 2010 based in Sutton Coldfield. With the success of his practice in Sutton Coldfield, Gabriel then went on to open his practice in Lichfield in 2018.

This will be a challenging role as there’s still work to be done to bring the practice up to the same level of success as Gabriel’s practice in Sutton Coldfield but with this brings huge opportunity.

The potential for this practice cannot be underestimated and therefore makes this a truly exciting opportunity to be part of something special. This role comes with a competitive salary up to £62,000, up to £5,000 relocation allowance and a generous benefits package* that you would expect from a major employer in our sector but with a few added extras!

*(including 20 days leave + bank holidays with service based holiday entitlement increases and dedicated CPD budget including funding towards certificates)

We are an equal opportunities employer

Locally owned practices with a world of support

At Vets4Pets we’re a network of practices that are owned and managed by the practice owners that run them. Because they’re locally owned, each practice has the freedom to serve patients and clients the way it thinks is best. 

But crucially, being locally-owned also means enjoying a truly team-spirited atmosphere. We want all our colleagues to build lasting relationships with practice owners and team members as well as patients and clients.

And because we’re also part of a wider group, you’ll get all the support you need when you need it. That means state-of-the-art facilities, high quality CPD, financial stability and a real sense of job security.

With our framework, we’ve made it simpler and easier for you to help patients and clients live happier, healthier lives together. It’s about making the most of your expertise and bringing this to life in practise while being safe in the knowledge that you’re looked after too. Simply put, we offer locally owned practices with a world of support.

Flexibility & Wellbeing
You tell us which hours you want to work, and we’ll do everything we can to make it happen. With us, you could enjoy a better work-life balance where flexibility and wellbeing come first.

Training & Development
We offer great training programmes, plus fully funded CPD, leadership courses and access to our group’s learning curriculum. We’ll also support you if you’re interested in owning a practice. With our wealth of resources, it’s easy to build your skills and develop your career.

Local Practices
With us, no two practices are the same. We’re deeply rooted in our local communities and we want you to really get to know your patients and clients locally.

Being part of the Pets At Home Group
Being part of Vets4Pets means you’ll be part of our network of locally owned practices. Our practices are located across the country and are owned and run by our Joint Venture Partners (JVPs). Our Joint Venture Partnership model is unique and gives everyone the best of both worlds. Working within one of our practices you’ll get to work with the JVP who has the clinical freedom and autonomy to do things their own way.

As we’re part of a large respected organisation you’ll also enjoy the benefits of being part of a wider PLC Group. This means we can give you greater stability and job security during these uncertain times and beyond. 

What’s more, we’ve worked hard to make sure everyone in our group can take part in a fun, friendly, professional and inclusive culture that allows you to bring your whole self to work and be at your very best.
