Job Details

Our happy, thriving independent small animal practice in Shrewton, Wiltshire, needs a locum vet for the week of 24 January, as well as dates in May, July and August.

We are small but very well equipped and have high standards, investigating problems thoroughly. We have an amazing team of nurses and support staff who look after the vets very well (and the vets look after them back).

We also have accommodation if needed.

Working hours are normally 9 - 6, but part-time hours could be possible. Responsibilities include consulting and routine surgery.

No OOH, just plenty of care and concern finishing at 6pm.

We're in a beautiful location with immediate access to Salisbury Plain for any walking, running, cycling, or outdoor activity you need to maintain your mental and physical health!

We would also welcome an ongoing locum or permanent support for regular days, 2-3 days (or part-days) per week and 1 in 3 Saturday mornings.   There is a lot of flexibility in the schedule so rather than state certain days, we’d rather know what your needs are first, and then discuss if we can accommodate them.    This role would suit someone with an interest in good quality medicine and who enjoys and is competent in basic soft tissue surgery. A Certificate holder would be hugely welcomed, also we would be happy to support Certificate training.

We have enthusiasm for learning, and for supporting growth professionally and personally. CPD is an essential part of our practice, and it is what keeps us motivated and able to continually improve the service to our clients. We always want to do our best for our patients; this requires staying up to date with current knowledge.

The nursing team are supportive and friendly, and embrace FearFree methods. Our nurses are highly valued and run successful nursing clinics (as COVID allows). We are currently a VNTC.     The receptionist team are experienced and look after our clients exceptionally well. As a result of that caring attitude, we have quite friendly clients!

If this sounds like a good fit and you are interested in joining our lovely team, please get in touch for a chat or to submit your application, click the apply button.


All the members of our team are highly valued, united by the common purpose to provide the best possible care of our patients and clients. We have a Continuous Improvement System in place where the team can actively contribute to the practice via regular team meetings, allowing us to achieve our purpose. We appreciate and support each other.

Good communication skills are essential for all team members, and to achieve a consistently high level of client satisfaction. We have 15 minute appointments, enabling us to focus on the client experience at our practice.

Our receptionists and nurses are exceptional and motivated. We are a VNTP and our nurses run clinics and puppy socials, as well as our HPC; all are integral to the practice.

The practice is in an idyllic country location close to Salisbury Plain, Stonehenge and the historic city of Salisbury. We are also within easy reach of the South Coast and London. We endorse a good life/work balance, knowing our own well-being is essential for providing the standards of care we desire.
