Job Details

Southill [square]The Practice

Truly Independent SA practice with a team approach to caring for our clients and their pets, seeks 2 vets to come join our gang. 

We have a vision for the future and we would love to find the next team members to help us make it a reality. If you want to have a say in the way your practice is run, then this is the practice where you WILL make a difference!

The Role
We are looking for a full-time vet to come join us 4 days a week and take a fair share of the OOH rota.

OH NO!! OOH!! I hear you cry  - well, we're here to tell you that it's not all bad!

Want to finish at 6pm? Hand over to the OOH vet if something's on it's way! On call tonight? No problem – you've got someone from the team manning your phones and an amazing nurse has your back.  Need some back up or advice? Other vets are just a WhatsApp away! But seriously, don't sweat it. We only do our own OOH, and that means that our on call workload is sensible and manageable. You WILL get plenty of rest, and it's even possible to have a social life while on call.

Work-life balance is really important here.

Our part-time vet role is to cover Saturday  morning consults, as we bid a sad farewell to our Saturday vet when she moves up country to her dream  farm. I'm sure she would be more than happy to tell you all how lovely we are if you want to hear it!  In addition to Saturday mornings, we would love it if you could join us during the week for some shifts too – these can be completely tailored to suit you, and could be perfect to work around  a young family, or if you are returning from a career break, or wanting to cut back on your hours.  We are happy to accommodate consults-only roles, as well as sharing out the ops fairly depending on what you want.

Successful Candidate

We are looking for someone who wants to work as part of a team, we work collaboratively, and that includes our nursing and reception teams.   Your personality and willingness to muck in are  more important than how many years you have under your belt, as we will be here to give you plenty of support.

Progression opportunities are real here – ownership  opportunities are available for the right candidates in time.

The Package

We have a very generous staff discount here, and a CPD budget that can be stretched to accommodate  ambitions in areas you may be passionate about. We have funded certificates,  and encourage attendance to practical workshops.  Of course, your VDS cover is included.

New grad? Lets say £35k starting wage. More experienced? Expect up to £55k.
