Job Details

Orthopaedic/Soft Tissue Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon

  • Full and part time applications welcomed.
  • 3 or 4 day working week
  • 1:4 Sat am and 1:15 Sunday (paid extra with a bonus)

Due to continued success, an exciting opportunity has arisen for a full time Referral Veterinary Surgeon to join us at our Glenfield Hospital. You will join a friendly and enthusiastic team of vets (including certificate holders) and nurses (including two surgical diploma holders), as part of a longstanding referral service, backed up by a dedicated first opinion team and our own on-site OOH service.

We are a training practice and work closely with local universities & training colleges. Our fantastic team is very supportive and we have plenty of opportunity for mentoring, if this is something you enjoy.

Based in our busy veterinary hospital in Glenfield, you will join two referral surgeons in driving the service forward in both Soft Tissue and Orthopaedic disciplines. As one of the referral surgeons, you will be expected to manage both an internal and external referral caseload, to aid/mentor other vets within the practice and to deliver external CPD to local referring practices.

We have all the usual kit including digital x-ray, ultrasound, a range of endoscopes, CT, ASIF and Synthes kits, TPLO/TTA/Tightrope, arthroscopy and Biomedtrix THR kits.

Park Vet Group is based in the wonderful city of Leicester. Leicester is the largest city in the East Midlands and is a modern city steeped in years of history and there is lots to do locally whether you enjoy the great outdoors/countryside or prefer the Hustle and bustle of the city. East midlands airport is less then a one hour drive away and you can visit lots of other cities in under 2 hours, including the capital.

The ideal candidate for the role will be an experienced Veterinary Surgeon with an Orthopaedic / Soft tissue certificate or a Surgeon keen to begin studying towards a certificate.

We offer a competitive benefits package which includes:

·        5 weeks holiday per year + birthday leave day

·        Over 150 hours+ of additional, in house, free online courses/content.

·        Employee Discounts

·        Specsavers Free Eye Test (and voucher for glasses for VDU use if applicable)

·        Cycle2Work Scheme

·        Employee Assistance Programme with BUPA

·        VDS Cover

·        RCVS Fees Paid


We can trace the roots of the practice back over 100 years in the days when the vet visited using a pony and trap and went as far afield as Coventry.

Over the years the practice has grown from a one branch practice, to having a dedicated farm practice, 4 pet surgeries that are spread across Leicestershire, a Referral Service and a dedicated Emergency Service open 24/7.

Our aim always remains the same: to provide the highest quality of care for pets for a prolonged and happy life. We have always employed highly trained, caring, compassionate and approachable staff using facilities to achieve just this.
