The Role

We have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced night Veterinary Surgeon to join our team. If you are looking for a role that will challenge you and give you the opportunity to develop your emergency and critical care skills, then this role is for you. 

You will be working in an enriching environment where you will use your clinical skills to provide high standard of emergency and out-of-hours care to a wide variety of cases. You will work alongside the rest of the dedicated EVS team, including another Veterinary Surgeon covering the twilight hours, night and twilight Registered Veterinary nurses, and a dedicated team of Care Assistants. You will be responsible for overnight in-patient care at a dedicated 24-hour hospital, meaning the majority of our patients stay on-site for the duration of their treatment. This provides a real opportunity to work up your own cases and allows case continuity. The Emergency Veterinary Service works alongside the Rowe Veterinary Group, as well as providing OOH cover for numerous practices locally. As part of EVS you have access to the team at Rowe Veterinary Group for case support and guidance if needed. The team at Rowe Veterinary Group is an experienced team of Veterinary Surgeons with many of the team holding certificates in Medicine, Surgery and Cardiology. You will also care for patients who are hospitalised by our Referral department in a variety of disciplines, including Medicine, Ophthalmology, Soft Tissue, Oncology, and Dentistry.

The rota will include working 7-night shifts on followed by 14 days off. It will be Monday to Friday 6:00pm-9:00am and Sat/Sun from 5.30pm-9:00am. 

The salary for this role is up to £60,000 take home depending on experience.

About Us

We encourage a collaborative working culture where we can share ideas and support each other. Several of our Vets have certificates in medicine and surgery, whilst others are currently working towards them. We enjoy supporting our new graduates and have EMS students on a regular basis enabling us to give back to the veterinary community. 

Our tier 3 RCVS accredited hospital provides excellent facilities including digital x-ray, dental x-ray, CT, MRI, ultrasound, endoscopy and more. We pride ourselves on clinical excellence whilst also providing a patient appropriate compassionate service for our clients. You will join a well-established team of over 30 other Veterinary Surgeons across the group, a strong, experienced nursing team, and a fantastic support team.

The Rowe Veterinary Group was founded in 1948 by Mr John Rowe, father of Richard, one of our partners who has recently retired from small animal practice. 

The practice has grown rapidly and now has four branches.  Three are in North Bristol with easy access from many areas of Bristol at Yate, Thornbury and Bradley Stoke so within South Gloucestershire.  People living in Rangeworthy, Winterbourne or Frampton Cotterell can quickly reach the Yate surgery or the 24 hour Hospital at Bradley Stoke. There is also a Veterinary Hospital at Wotton-under-Edge, easy to get to from Hillesley, Hawkesbury Upton, Charfield, Wickwar, Cromhall and Dursley areas.

As well as providing a high quality first opinion practice for dogs, cats, small furries, birds and exotic animals, we are home to a referral service, Rowe Referrals. We are always there to take care of your pet, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
