Job Details

The Role

We have an excellent opportunity for a confident Veterinary Surgeon to join our team. We have Practices in Shenley and Edgware therefore there is the opportunity to work at one or both, depending on your location / preference. We are looking for someone who has an all-round knowledge and who can manage all the normal vet duties including occasional sole charge, (another vet will be available at the other surgery).

Our Full-Time vets work 40 hours per week over 4 days. The shifts include 3 x 9:00am-7:30pm, 1 x 10:00am-5:30pm and one day off every week with Fridays on a 1:4 rotation, no OOH. We can be flexible on days / hours and shift patterns. Both Full Time and Part Time applicants are welcome.

Salary is up to £50,000 depending on experience + £5k Welcome Bonus.

About Us

We have two lovely surgeries, one in the middle of Shenley Park, opposite a beautiful apple orchard, with fabulous tea rooms just a minute’s walk away! Our Edgware surgery is more urban, both have friendly clients, with a large uptake of insured pets. Both surgeries are well equipped, with our main work done at the Shenley premises (x rays, scans etc). We have a great local reputation and enjoy being very much part of the local community.

About the Team and Culture

We have 4 Vets, a Practice Manager, 7 Nurses and 2 Receptionists. You couldn't find a friendlier team! We have amazing staff retention; most have been here for many years. Everyone is super supportive, clinically, physically, and emotionally. We have great clients, almost all of whom have come to us from a personal recommendation, and we are renowned for the personal attention we give to our patients and their owners. We are looking forward to getting involved again with community projects, such as local dog shows and school visits. Several of our staff bring their own dogs with them to work and we can always find a peaceful place for them to settle down!

Applicant Requirements

We are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon with some experience as this role will sometimes require you to work on your own. We don't need any further qualifications apart from MRCVS, but we would be happy to encourage an applicant who is looking to do a certificate etc. An interest in ultrasound especially echocardiography would be an advantage. Good humour and the ability to laugh along with the team on those tougher days is definitely a benefit!
Both Full Time and Part Time applicants are welcome.
