Job Details

Veterinary Surgeon - Full or Part Time - Hedge End Vets4Pets

Job Description

Due to continued growth, we are pleased to offer a new opportunity for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon to join our passionate and friendly team at Hedge End Vets4Pets. This position is for a full-time vet, but we’re more than happy to discuss a part-time position or flexible hours. And if you apply directly, we’ll offer you a £2000 signing on bonus to welcome you into our practice.

We are seeking for an enthusiastic Veterinary Surgeon who would enjoy a small animal case load and who already has experience from first opinion practice and feels comfortable consulting and confident in routine surgery.

Whilst you will get the chance to work autonomously with some sole charge and have the clinical freedom to treat your patients as you need, you can also benefit from working as part of an experienced and friendly team.

About Us

Hedge End Vets4Pets is RCVS accredited and a well-equipped small animal veterinary practice with air-conditioned consulting rooms and theatre. It has separate cats and dog wards and an isolation ward, an ultrasound machine, digital x-ray and an inhouse lab. To top it all, most of our clients is insured, which will make your life easier and your patients healthier.

Hedge End is only 6 miles away from central Southampton and Hedge End itself is an area of family residential homes, with a strong retail offering which attracts people from a wide area and there is easy access to coastal and rural areas.  

We’re pretty flexible, if you want a full-time position, or a part-time, or something in between, we’re happy to get that for you. We’re closed on Sundays and there is no OOH. There is also admin time factored into your week so that you can breathe and catch up!

We’re happy to inform that we’re able to offer fully supported and funded visa sponsorship to work in the UK. 

   Benefits we offer:

  •    Salary between £45k and £55k 
  •    Signing on bonus of £2000 (direct candidates only)
  •    5 weeks holiday
  •    CPD allowance up to Certificate level
  •    Paid professional membership: RCVS / VDS / BVA 
  •    Fully Funded Working Visa
  •    No OOH nor Sundays
  •    Exclusive company discounts and rewards
  •    Contributory Pension

We are an Equal Opportunities Employer.

Locally owned practices with a world of support

At Vets4Pets we’re a network of practices that are owned and managed by the practice owners that run them. Because they’re locally owned, each practice has the freedom to serve patients and clients the way it thinks is best. 

But crucially, being locally-owned also means enjoying a truly team-spirited atmosphere. We want all our colleagues to build lasting relationships with practice owners and team members as well as patients and clients.

And because we’re also part of a wider group, you’ll get all the support you need when you need it. That means state-of-the-art facilities, high quality CPD, financial stability and a real sense of job security.

With our framework, we’ve made it simpler and easier for you to help patients and clients live happier, healthier lives together. It’s about making the most of your expertise and bringing this to life in practise while being safe in the knowledge that you’re looked after too. Simply put, we offer locally owned practices with a world of support.

Flexibility & Wellbeing
You tell us which hours you want to work, and we’ll do everything we can to make it happen. With us, you could enjoy a better work-life balance where flexibility and wellbeing come first.

Training & Development
We offer great training programmes, plus fully funded CPD, leadership courses and access to our group’s learning curriculum. We’ll also support you if you’re interested in owning a practice. With our wealth of resources, it’s easy to build your skills and develop your career.

Local Practices
With us, no two practices are the same. We’re deeply rooted in our local communities and we want you to really get to know your patients and clients locally.

Being part of the Pets At Home Group
Being part of Vets4Pets means you’ll be part of our network of locally owned practices. Our practices are located across the country and are owned and run by our Joint Venture Partners (JVPs). Our Joint Venture Partnership model is unique and gives everyone the best of both worlds. Working within one of our practices you’ll get to work with the JVP who has the clinical freedom and autonomy to do things their own way.

As we’re part of a large respected organisation you’ll also enjoy the benefits of being part of a wider PLC Group. This means we can give you greater stability and job security during these uncertain times and beyond. 

What’s more, we’ve worked hard to make sure everyone in our group can take part in a fun, friendly, professional and inclusive culture that allows you to bring your whole self to work and be at your very best.
