Job Details

Ever fancied working in the Peak District? Well, look no further!

A fabulous opportunity has opened up for someone who fancies working in one of England's more picturesque locations (well, we think so!) as a mobile vet based at the  Buxton branch of our Buxton/New Mills partnership. This branch is located in the stunning spa town of Buxton, located in the western part of the Peak District, home of the famous Buxton thermal waters.

This town would make a wonderful place to live, with plenty of recreational opportunities from the numerous spas to performing arts festivals such as the Buxton Fringe festival (the warmup to the Edinburgh Fringe), music, markets and more. Beyond the town itself you'll find yourself living in open countryside with close links to Manchester and the travel and nightlife options it provides.

You should have the time to enjoy it all, too - we're offering a 4-day week with Fridays off, meaning you'll have a 3-day weekend as standard! We can offer part-time/term time in this role please email 

So what are we hoping you'll bring to the role?

As Buxton is a smaller town, with a loyal client following, we're hoping you'll have the right sort of people skills to make them feel right at home. There will also be some sole charge involved with this position so it would help if you were confident working on your own (although support is always just a phone call away). As this practice works closely with its sister practice in New Mills there will also be opportunities to work with a larger team and to work up cases to a high standard.

The ideal candidate will have at least 1-2 years' UK small animal practice (or UK equivalent) experience. This is definitely a role that you could make your own, with plenty of opportunities to grow and develop this branch alongside an enthusiastic and friendly team. To help make our veterinary care available to clients who work weekdays, we also work some weekends (this is usually a 1 in 3 single days or 1 in 6 full weekends), but on the plus side we won't be asking you to do any OOH!

Career progression is actively promoted and we are always very happy to talk about helping you take the next steps in your career - including certificate support.

Salary & Benefits:

  • Very competitive salary up to £57,000 depending on experience
  • Accommodation allowance of £6,600
  • Vehicle or £2,500 vehicle allowance
  • £1,500 CPD allowance with 3 days CPD leave
  • VDS, RCVS, and BVA fees paid
  • 5 weeks' annual leave plus bank holidays
  • Paid 4-week sabbaticals every 5 years of service
  • Enhanced maternity/paternity leave
  • Long service rewards
  • Discounts on several of everyday items and activities through HapiBenefits 
  • Relocation packages available
  • Certificate of Sponsorship available

We'd love to see you become part of the Buxton/New Mills team - and we'd be more than happy to chat to you further about it if you think you might be interested.
