Job Details

My clients in Kent require a budding Veterinary Surgeon to join their team, complementing their PgCert (SAS) holder and other veterinary surgeons to offer surgical services to clients in South Kent. The role is 4 days per week with shift patterns from 8am-6pm, 9am -7pm, 10am-8pm and a duty inpatient shift from 11am-9pm. 1:7 weekends with time off in lieu. No primary out of hours cover, just cover of inpatients with dedicated night nurses on site.

It's a Tier 3 RCVS accredited hospital with an amazing array of facilities. The hospital benefits from on-site CT, Kyon TPLO/TTA kit plus ALPS plates, upgraded ultrasound (Imotek 3) and Karl Storz scopes (gastroscope, bronchoscope, arthroscope, laparoscope. Many of their vets and nurses are embarking on advanced certificates including ECC, Medicine, Anaesthesia, Surgery and Diagnostic Imaging. They have inpatient rounds daily at 1:45pm to discuss inpatient care and any interesting hospitalised cases or work-ups booked in that day.

In total, they have a total of 12 vets across three sites, with up to six vets in on one day at the hospital. At present they have 18 RVNs (both full-time and part-time), four student nurses and two kennel assistants. They endeavour to have fun during our working days and often there is the radio on in the background of our large prep room.

The ideal applicant would be someone with clinical experience with at least one year of UK veterinary experience. Attainment of a surgical certificate [BSAVA PgCertSAS, CertAVP (GSAS) or PgCert (SAS)] or near completion of a certificate would be ideal and experience in orthopaedics and/or laparoscopy would be ideal. Additional clinical interests can be supported through the high hospital and branch caseload.
