Join our Emergency and Critical care service in Vets Now Peterborough


This is an excellent opportunity for a Vet Surgeon who is seeking an interesting and challenging caseload in a spacious practice, to become part of our welcoming team here at Vets Now Peterborough.

Vets Now are the UK’s leading provider of emergency pet care. Our nationwide network of out-of-hours pet emergency clinics are open through the night, at weekends and on bank holidays, so we’re ready and waiting to provide the care and support to pets and their owners at the time they need it most. Working as an emergency Vet Surgeon will expose you to a diverse range of cases that you simply won’t see in general practice.


Working out-of-hours doesn’t mean working all hours


Work/life balance is at the forefront of the way we approach our rota planning and working with our amazing staff to find the best pattern for them is paramount to creating the positive working environment we pride ourselves on.

Working a fair share of weeknights, weekend days/nights and bank holidays, you will work an average of 3 shifts per week for a full-time 40 hours per week contract (though we are open to discussing part-time hours for this position).

Shifts may include:

Weekday nights: 19:00-09:00

Saturday: 19:00-09:00 or 12:00-19:30

Sunday: 10:00-22:00 or 08:30-19:30

Plus a fair share of bank holidays.


Take control of your own career development


Working in this ECC setting you will see a diverse and challenging caseload which will sharpen and develop your veterinary skills. At Vets Now we invest heavily in the continuous professional development of all our people across the business. As a vet surgeon you will have access to professional qualifications, progression opportunities, coaching and mentoring. Our CPD package is second to none, VDS and RCVS fees are covered, and we will support you in achieving an ECC certificate.


Reward and benefits package


Our employees are our greatest asset which is why we offer a first class benefits and rewards package that includes:

  • 7 weeks pro rata annual leave
  • Your birthday as a paid day off
  • Private medical insurance
  • £1500 CPD allowance plus 35 paid hours pro rata
  • UK Standard Pension contributions – 5% Employee/3% Employer
  • Professional membership fees
  • Up to 50% discounted staff pet care
  • Death in service of two times annual salary
  • Membership of employee wellbeing programme
  • Company sick, maternity, paternity and adoption pay schemes


Enhanced induction


At Vets Now, we are passionate about training and the on-going development of our employees. If this vacancy is of interest and you feel you would benefit from an enhanced induction into our business then the below option may be perfect for you:
