Job Details

Donnington Grove Veterinary Group is a large Practice based in Newbury, Berkshire. 

We are currently looking for a vet to join our friendly, experienced Small Animal team - we have certificate holders in medicine, ophthalmology, imaging and surgery.

We have three well-equipped branches, all RCVS Accredited, including our hospital in Newbury. All branches are equipped for surgical procedures and digital diagnostic imaging. Your time will usually be split between the Hospital and one of the branches. There is no sole working with ample opportunity to operate or investigate cases every working day.

Consultations are at least 15 minutes – longer if required and there is generous time set aside during the day for phone calls, other ancillary veterinary tasks, or sometimes just chatting and drinking tea!

Working 4 days a week plus OOH Rota, which is shared evenly across a large team of vets with full back up when on-call. Night duties are 1:15 and weekends are 1:7. Phones are answered by our nursing team who are on site 24/7 to look after inpatients. We are proud of the excellent OOH service we provide to our patients, and the case load brings in a selection of interesting surgical and medical cases.

Newbury is a thriving town in West Berkshire, with many restaurants and only a 45-minute train journey to London Paddington. Situated on the edge of the North Wessex Downs AONB, it also provides beautiful local countryside for long walks with our canine friends.

Benefits to include:

  • Accommodation: £10,000 per annum allowance added to salary if you own your own property or with up to £11,400 per anum tax free rent paid.
  • Holiday: 5 weeks plus bank holidays or time off in lieu and your birthday
  • Pension
  • Private Medical Insurance
  • Health Cash Plan that provides cover for day to day health issues, a 24/7 work/life support line and access to various restaurant, travel and retail discounts
  • Generous Staff Discount including small animal and equine

We offer a generous CPD allowance and encourage the Team to pursue further qualification.

Wage package between £38,000-£60,000 depending on experience
