Job Details


We are a 10 vet, independent mixed practice 60% farm, 40% small.  We have three branches on mainland Orkney and also cover the smaller Islands.  Our herds are predominantly beef suckler with some dairy and sheep.  We are very well equipped for all areas of general practice.  

Located just off the northern tip of Scotland we enjoy beautiful sandy beaches, stunning scenery, visiting Orcas, wildlife, a great music scene with festivals throughout the year, art, culture and world famous archaeology.  No wonder Orkney is regularly voted one of the best places to live in the UK!

With one of our vets moving back home to England and our small animal department getting busier all the time, we have an opportunity for a new vet to join our friendly and experienced team.  A genuinely mixed position or a small animal position is on offer.  Our unique rota means no on call for weeks at a time.

We offer a generous remuneration package dependent on qualifications / experience.  A car and accommodation can be provided; various memberships are paid; we have health and dental insurance; CPD is encouraged and funded and local ‘active life’ gym membership is available too.
