Job Details

A rare opportunity to live & work in a UNESCO World Heritage Site!  Oakhill Veterinary Group require a full-time mixed practitioner for work in beautiful Windermere & Ambleside. 

The Practice

Fantastic, well-equipped, purpose-built surgery and rehabilitation centre offering first opinion and referral services.  Very friendly and supportive team of outdoor fun enjoying staff.  Each morning starts with 20 minutes case discussion rounds and a cup of tea!  Affluent, well insured and grateful client base means plenty of opportunity to work up cases well and feel appreciated.

The Role
Full time (4 day week) mixed practitioner; the practice is an important part of the local community and undertakes 85% SA work (with referral work in surgery and rehabilitation) 15% Beef/Sheep/Equine.  We have certificate holders in surgery, anaesthesia and medicine. 

We ideally would like to find somebody with strengths and competency in all aspects of mixed practice work but there is scope to tailor the role to the individual’s areas of interest and lots of support is available.  We are proud to offer our own out of hours service to our small community which means working a one in five rota that only rarely disturbs your night’s sleep.

Successful Candidate
We would like to find somebody who would like to be part of our amazing and unique community. Some mixed practice experience would be very desirable but most importantly someone who shares our passion and enjoyment of veterinary medicine and surgery. We are not driven by targets, we are driven by interest and enthusiasm!

The Package
Generous salary, time off (6.6 weeks) and very generous CPD budget.  Four day working week. Flexibility within the role for the right candidate.  Pension & Healthshield membership.

Historically, this was a single-handed practice in Windermere that was taken over by Tony Sansom in 1973.  Since then the Practice has developed to the 9 vets, 'mixed' practice (i.e. companion animals, farm animals and horses) that exists today.

Although our main premises are at the Oakhill Veterinary Centre in Windermere, we also maintain a branch practice in Ambleside.

Everyone at our practice is committed to providing you with the very best in pet healthcare. Our veterinary team bring a wealth of experience to the practice and have individually obtained high standards of professional qualification.
