Job Details

An amazing opportunity has arisen for a dynamic and experienced Veterinary Surgeon to join Medivet Gravesend.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is keen to move into the next stage in their career, with excellent long term prospects for the right candidate.

You should be a highly confident veterinary surgeon who has a wealth of surgical experience. You will cover first opinion duties and will also take on surgical referrals from other neighbouring clinics in the Dartford region.

In return, we will provide excellent career progression opportunities, a great work-life balance, a fantastic package (see below) and the chance to be involved in cases using state-of-the-art technology. We will provide all of this, whilst you continue to develop your career and get the most job satisfaction.

This role covers 39 hours a week over 4 days and will cover 1:6 full weekends.

Medivet in Gravesend is a well-established surgery in the area. Our Lead Vet Nigel has over 30 years of experience and he supported many new vet grads throughout his career. We also have two RVNs, an SVN and a PCA. We have a large client base with a variety of cases. The branch is 5min away from the high street and there are many places where you can grab a bite.

At Gravesend, we have a range of equipment we use every day. We have an x-ray room, tonometer, ultrasound machine and recently refurbished rooms. The building is quite old but it has its charm. Each vet has their own consult room which can be equipped to their preference. We have two waiting rooms, this is to make sure our large number of clients can fit comfortably without overcrowding. We also have a garden, mainly for patient use but we do like to use it take a moment in the summertime. There is a large car park opposite the practice and very good public transport links.

Our senior staff have a lot of experience, so if you’re looking for support during your career, we are here to help. We are a small team but we are looking to expand and help others to grow in the field. So if you love some tea and biscuits, come to Gravesend, we never run out.

Salary & Benefits

A very competitive package of up to £65,000 per annum (depending on experience), which includes accommodation allowance and a vehicle or vehicle allowance

£1,500 CPD allowance with 3 days’ CPD leave and in-house CPD training

VDS, RCVS and BVA fees paid
