Veterinary Surgeon

Newtownards Vets4Pets

Full or Part Time

Salary up to £55,000


Flexibility and career progression? You really can have both!

At Newtownards Vets4Pets, we believe that you can have it all. From a fulfilling career with supportive colleagues, through to an idyllic hometown in which you can secure the best possible quality of life, everything is possible when you join us.

We currently have an exciting opportunity for a talented Veterinary Surgeon to join our team and because it’s important to us to find the right person to work alongside us, we are happy to offer greater flexibility and a rota that can be planned around what works best for you.  So, if you have childcare needs, caring responsibilities or are simply taking care of your own wellbeing and are looking for a level of flexibility that isn’t always available in our sector, then we’d still love to hear from you.  

It may be that shorter days with later starts, or earlier finishes than the average day in practice work better for you. Or maybe you prefer to work longer days & have more full days off, that could also be accommodated.  If you’re looking for longer hours during term time & shorter days during school holidays, then we can discuss that with you too! We don’t do our own OOH and are only open until midday on Saturdays ensuring that everyone in the team can take advantage of the work/life balance that we all value so much.

Our patients and clients are at the heart of everything we do and with a varied case load, we’re looking for a vet with good medical and surgical experience, strong communication and interpersonal skills and a genuine passion for what you do.

If you prefer a mainly consulting role this can be accommodated. However, if you love surgery & orthopaedics, we are also well equipped with orthopaedic kit to enable a range of routine and emergency procedures including cruciate repairs, patella surgeries & fracture repairs - although we know this is not everyone’s idea of a fun day at work!

If you are not currently local to us, we can offer you a generous relocation package of up of £5,000.  We will also support your ongoing career progression with fully funded training and development opportunities along with the opportunity to become a practice owner with our Joint Venture Partnership model.


A generous benefits package is also available including:

Excellent career development opportunities
No OOH or Sunday working
Contributory pension scheme
Competitive salary up to £55,000 depending on experience
Generous CPD allowance and plenty of support

Private Health Insurance

Death in service 4 x annual salary
Paid memberships
Exclusive company discounts & rewards

We are based in Newtownards town centre, with easy commuting options to Belfast by car or bus, and beautiful coastal walks nearby. For further information call Sarah Hilliam on 07790 377053 or to submit your application click the apply button
