We take pride in our collaborative approach and our team is keen to support those looking to develop themselves further, including studying towards certificates themselves.

In return, we will provide an excellent career progression and work-life balance, fantastic packages, and the chance to be involved in cases using state-of-the-art technology. We provide all of this whilst you continue to develop your career and get the most job satisfaction. You will have the chance to make this practice the true heart of the community, not just in location but also in spirit!

The ideal candidate will have a minimum of 3 years' UK small animal practice (or UK equivalent) experience. You must have a client-oriented approach and excellent communication skills, work to a very high standard both medically and surgically and have the drive and ambition to help develop this practice further.

We can also support Certificates of Sponsorship for a Tier 2 (General) Visa if you meet the criteria and are eligible to register as a veterinary surgeon with the RCVS upon arrival in the UK.

Medivet is growing rapidly and it is an exciting time to join us - we encourage growth and development within our roles and are truly committed to helping our Medivet family members achieve their goals.

*This role is eligible for our Signing Bonus, payable to direct hires and referrals from current colleagues. No agency candidates will be entitled to this bonus.


The Swanbridge group has a busy tier 3 hospital complete with seven branch surgeries. We have an extremely loyal client base and we are active in the local community. 

You will be working within a beautiful, well-equipped practice and have access to modern facilities including digital X-ray, Doppler ultrasound, endoscopy, and a CT diagnostic suite at the hospital.
