Clinical Director required at Framlingham Vets, Framlingham, Suffolk

The Role
We are currently looking for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon to lead our small and friendly team as our new Clinical Director. This is a full-time position, working a 4 day week with 1:3 Saturday commitment and no OOH.

About Us
Framlingham is a quaint historic town in Suffolk, it is known for being one of the most desirable places to live in the country and it is more famous for its beautiful Castle which towers over the town (and more recently for Ed Sheeran!). Our practice is small animal only, operating over 6 days. The building is purposely-built, modern and spacious. We have separate dog and cat kennels. We run a range of nurse-run consultations including geriatric pet, weight control, travel and dental clinics. We have a modern range of “usual toys”, but there is also budget for more specified equipment to suit the applicant’s interests. We run on site orthopaedic, soft tissue surgery and dermatology referrals.

We have a full complement of nursing and reception staff plus an experienced practice manager. Two other experienced vets complete the team (head to our website and social media pages to get an idea of who we are).
