Vet Surgeon



Up to £60,000 DOE plus benefits



Be part of a phenomenal team


At Vets Now Preston, we have an opportunity for an experienced Vet Surgeon to join our team on a full or part time basis.


Due to our continued success and growing caseload in Preston, we will be relocating at the end of the year. This is an exciting time to join the team as they get ready for the move our new clinic. 


Working as an Emergency Vet has its challenges. The caseload is diverse, and the hours can be unsociable. However, in clinic, you will have the invaluable support of our highly experienced nursing team, alongside our animal care assistants and receptionists, as well as the additional support of our Clinical Lead, and other nearby clinics. 



Continual professional development


People are at the heart of what we do and that’s why we take a pioneering approach to people development. We have cemented our commitment to continuous development by heavily investing in CPD, ECC certification and coaching to give our staff the springboard they need to take their career to the next level.



Get off on the right foot


We can also offer a place on AdvantEdge, our two-week programme for experienced Vets. AdvantEdge is aimed at Vets with at least two years UK small animal or mixed practice experience, and who want to top-up their emergency medical and surgical knowledge whilst learning new techniques. The lectures on AdvantEdge are delivered virtually by diplomats in ECC, Internal Medicine and Surgery as well as experienced ECC clinicians. The programme also features mentored shifts in clinic - an ideal opportunity to work alongside an experienced emergency clinician and put into practice everything you’ve picked up on the programme.



Working out-of-hours doesn’t mean working all hours


We recognise a work/life balance is of the utmost importance and this opportunity provides great scope for clinical excellence and career development with adequate time off-shift. 


Working no more than 40 hours per week for a full-time role, your rota pattern will involve a mix of weeknight shifts, weekend days or nights and a share of bank holidays.




What we can offer you


Recognising hard work is really important to us. Our employees are our greatest asset which is why we offer a first-class benefits and rewards package that includes:


  • 7 weeks pro rata annual leave
  • Your birthday as a paid day off
  • Private medical insurance
  • £1500 CPD allowance plus 35 paid hours pro rata
  • UK Standard Pension contributions – 5% Employee/3% Employer
  • Professional membership fees
  • Up to 50% discounted staff pet care
  • Death in service of two times annual salary
  • Membership of employee wellbeing programme
  • Company sick, maternity, paternity and adoption pay schemes
