Job Details

About Us

We are committed to a good work life balance, and we are ideally suited to a new or recent graduate with lots of friendly support, 2 VetGDP advisors and a team of qualified nurses.

Our days generally consist of 2hrs small animal consulting (15min appointments) 9-11am, on average 2-3 small animal surgeries/procedures +/- approximately 2-3 large animal calls through the day divided fairly across the team, followed by 2hrs small animal consulting 4-6pm.

The Role

Full-time permanent mixed animal new /recent graduate. Small or mixed animal vets will be considered for this role. We are proud to offer our own out of hours service for our clients and our on-calls generally aren’t too busy, but with normal seasonal variation. The on-call rota is 1:4 which is balanced with time off in leu during the week – this effectively works out as a 4 week rolling rota of one 3 day, one 5 day and two 4 day working weeks. We will formally provide back up on-call support on call for as long as you want it with a minimum of 6 months, but informally we are a collaborative team and are always happy to back each other up as needed. Sole charge consulting is rarely needed and will only be asked of you once you feel truly ready for it.

Successful Candidate

We are looking for a friendly, outgoing, and progressively minded vet to join our team. Ideally you will be interested in all species but the nature of our team and collaborative attitude means there will be space for you to grow your interests in any direction you choose.

The Package

  • £30,000-50,000, all reasonable CPD requests supported, car available for work and personal use if wanted
  • RCVS fees and other memberships paid
  • Support with finding accommodation can be negotiated if required


Our two-site practice in Aberdeenshire is centred on our main clinic in the historic town of Alford (home of the Aberdeen Angus), 35mins from Aberdeen airport, and with easy access to Aberdeen city. We also have a consulting practice in the scenic tourist hotspot of Ballater in the Royal Deeside region of Cairngorms national park.
