Job Details

Our friendly independent small animal practice is growing, and we are looking for veterinary surgeons to join our team in the university town of Loughborough.

Meadow Lane Veterinary Centre has been caring for pets for over 140 years and we are fortunate to be situated in a beautiful building, which was originally a stable block. We are one of the oldest established practices in England but with a modern outlook and up-to-date facilities and equipment. We have recently completed a big refurbishment project and now have Meadow Lane Theatre paws a brand-new purpose-built surgical extension, a new imaging room, new kennels with isolation and excellent dental facilities. We have dental x-ray on the way, and we are going for Gold ISFM status – with a new cat ward approaching the final stages of development.

We have a number of opportunities so can consider full-time, part-time or flexible arrangements for vets with a range of experience. We would be happy to support vets who are looking to develop their careers and we would be able to support someone through a certificate. We are able to support new graduates as a number of staff members are enrolled on the RCVS Meadow lane theatre 2 VetGDP advisor program, so you will always have someone to turn to, plus we are happy to fund the Grad-to-Vet mentor scheme. As a nurse training practice, you would also be supported by our experienced team of RVNs, SVNs and VCAs.

There are no OOHs, but we care for our own inpatients and have Saturday morning consultations on a shared rota. We can offer:

  • A salary range of £40,000 for a new graduate and up to £70,000 for an experienced surgeon/certificate holder
  • An unlimited CPD Budget – if you want to do it, and it will benefit the practice, we will fund it.
  • 5 weeks holiday plus bank holidays – increasing with length of service up to 6 weeks plus bank holidays
  • Bonus scheme and staff discount

This is what Holly, one our vets, had to say about her experience working with us;

‘Meadow Lane is a busy and growing independent practice with a wide variety of cases and lovely, caring clients. No two days are the same. There is the independence of clinical freedom while still providing the opportunity to confer with a supportive team. The reception and nursing staff are amazing. They are pro-active, thoughtful and kind. I joined Meadow Meadow lane imaging room Lane in 2019. Since then, our small practice has grown significantly, but our team still has that same close knit feeling it always had. We hope to continue to grow and welcome some more members to our friendly team’.

The practice is owned by partners Jenny Coulburn, who has a Certificate in General Surgery, and Nick Bartlett, who has a special interest in  Exotics.  We enjoy an extremely wide and varied case load. Enjoying being at work is very important to all of us; we will support you and work together to bring out the best in all of us. We like to think of our work colleagues like our friends and family.

If our friendly team and great facilities sound like the perfect fit for you, then please call Jenny for an informal chat or click Apply Now!
