Veterinary Surgeon required at Richmond House Vets, Dewsbury, West Yorks.

The Role

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our team here at Richmond House Vet Centre! We are ideally hoping to recruit a permanent full-time veterinary surgeon but would be open to considering one or more part-time job-sharing positions. This could mean hours/salary mentioned could be flexible. A normal day in the life would consist of a good mixture of consult and surgery work depending on the rota for that day. We would try to incorporate operating time each day particularly if the Vet Surgeon was to be on a later finish with evening consultations. There would be client calls and some telephone consultations and of course reporting on any in patient that vet surgeon was responsible for. We are a busy Practice but try to have breaks during the working day particularly if on a later finish. As a minimum we have a break at lunchtime and in later afternoon before evening clinic starts.


£34000-£36000 (subject to pro rata)


Rota is averaged out over 6-week rotation. Weekdays start at 9:00am. 2 days finish after evening consults at 8:00pm. 1 day finishes after afternoon consults at 4:00pm. 1 day finishes at 1:00pm. 1 day finishes at approx 3pm. One week in 6 is a bonus week, with 2 days off and then 2pm start for 3 days with 8pm finish Weekend work. 2 out of 6 weekends (consisting of 2 Saturdays full day and one Sunday 10am to 12 midday). No OOHs as we use OOH service provider
