Job Details

The Role

We are introducing a new role to support our existing weekend Vets. There is no sole charge in this role but due to the fast-paced environment some prior experience would be helpful.

The ideal candidate would enjoy working in a busy hospital environment seeing an interesting and diverse caseload. You would be predominantly triaging emergency consults and there will also be the opportunity to perform emergency procedures in the afternoon. Typical caseload includes vomiting, diarrhoea, gastrointestinal foreign bodies, wounds, unstable diabetics, anaemia, dystocia, haemoabdomen. We are ideally looking for someone to work alternate Saturdays from 8.30-5.30 and alternate Sundays from 9-5. There is a degree of flexibility with these times. We would be happy to consider 2 people job-sharing these shifts and may also be able to offer some weekday shifts if desired. Salary for the role is between £30,000 - £50,000 FTE depending on experience.

About Us

The role is at our RCVS accredited small animal hospital based in lovely North Leeds. We are well equipped with CT, digital x-ray, ultrasound, endoscopy, laparoscopy, multiparameter monitoring, ventilator and separate species wards. We have staff on site 24 hours a day and provide an emergency service for our own clients and those of our local member practices including our 2 branch practices. Our main strength is our amazing team of highly qualified and skilled individuals. We have certificate holders in surgery, medicine, ECC and exotics and we pride ourselves on delivering an outstanding level of patient care and customer service. We have an open dialogue about mental health and all work to contribute towards a lovely and supportive workplace. We are situated in lovely north Leeds, close to Leeds Bradford airport and within easy reach of Leeds, Harrogate and York. It is also easy to escape to the countryside with the beautiful Yorkshire Dales close by.

We are a large but close-knit team. We have certificate holders in surgery, medicine, ECC and exotics and see a mix of first opinion and referral work at our hospital. This provides a really interesting and diverse caseload. We are looking for someone who thrives on working within a team - we love discussing cases and working collaboratively. As Covid restrictions lift we have enjoyed seeing each other outside of work. We recently had a summer BBQ and some of the team took part in a charity dragon boat race.

Applicant Requirements

The ideal applicant must be a qualified vet eligible to work in the UK. There is no sole charge in this role, but the hospital is fast paced so some experience would be helpful.

Holly House has been providing North Leeds with quality veterinary care since 1994 and the North of England with dedicated exotic care facilities for over ten years. We also provide our own 24 hour on-site emergency service so there is no need to travel to other branches out-of-hours. Our emergency service can be accessed by calling the usual number at any time, day or night.

In 2010, Holly House succeeded in its dream of becoming the first Veterinary Hospital in North Leeds. The Practice Standards Scheme is a voluntary initiative set up by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), which aims to promote and maintain the highest standards of veterinary care. The RCVS has inspected us and agreed that our facilities, equipment and also our levels of care and expertise reach Hospital standard.

The practice is owned by Stuart McArthur and run by him and a dedicated team of Vets, Nurses and Reception staff. You can find out more about our staff and the qualifications they hold in our about us section.
