Job Details

Veterinary Surgeon - Full or Part Time - Epsom Vets4Pets

Due to the relocation of her fantastic vet, Lenesa Govender is looking for a friendly veterinary surgeon to join her team based in the market town of Epsom, Surrey. This growing practice turns 5 this year and continues to go from strength to strength! 

Lenesa offers:
•    Competitive salary - £40,000 – £55,000
•    Full time, 4 days a week for work-life balance, and 1 in 3 weekend rota
•    Enhanced annual leave
•    Birthday leave
•    Flexible rota with a mix of early and late shifts
•    Relocation package
•    Paid CPD
•    No OOHs responsibility
•    Contributory pension scheme
•    Paid memberships (RCVS, BVA and VDS)
•    Exclusive colleague discounts
•    Supportive and friendly work environment


The practice is ideally situated close to the town centre and within a 7-minute walk of Epsom train station and also offers free onsite parking. You will work with modern state of the art equipment including digital X-ray, ultrasound with Doppler, a growing orthopaedic kit and separate dog and cat wards and it is also a nurse training practice. 

Lenesa qualified as a veterinary surgeon 17 years ago in South Africa and is joined by a talented and supportive team of 3 RVNs (soon to be 4), a student nurse and veterinary care assistants (one of whom will be starting their nurse training in April) and two receptionists. The team hold a variety of interests including surgery (Lenesa is a certificate holder), exotics and anaesthesia. 

The practice has a growing client base and is really nice and busy now, which means we see a wide variety of interesting cases! Patients needing X rays, bloods, scans, and orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery is carried out on site. The practice run 15-minute consults as standard but 30 minute consults for puppy vaccinations and new clients.

Lenesa offers a supportive and progressive work environment and is hugely supportive of further learning opportunities for all of her team. This is great opportunity for any experienced Vet looking to join a busy practice where they can progress and gain exposure of running a practice alongside Lenesa the JVP as well as JVP prospects.

The rota is structured to be as fair as possible and to ensure a great work/life balance. Due to the element of sole charge involved in this role, the position would suit an experienced vet with a minimum of 1 years’ experience in the UK. You will need to be confident in all routine surgical and medical cases and you will also enjoy building strong relationships with patients, clients, and the wider team. An interest in exotics, medicine or diagnostic imaging would be ideal but not essential! 

If you would like to join our team and you share our passion for delivering outstanding pet healthcare and great customer service, then we would love to hear from you.

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.
