Job Details

The Role

We are looking for an enthusiastic and committed Veterinary Surgeon to join our friendly and encouraging team. Support will be provided for a new or recent graduate but the role could be equally suited to a vet with more experience looking to develop their career. Further training and study is actively encouraged and supported. A four day week offers excellent opportunity for a work-life balance, although a part time role could be considered for the right candidate. We provide our own out-of-hours equally shared, with back-up available if required. Time off is given in lieu of weekends work, giving a long weekend every month. Salary up to £60,000 per annum DOE.

About Us

The Laurels Veterinary Group is a progressive first opinion small animal practice set across 2 sites in rural Herefordshire countryside, in the heart of the Wye Valley. Both sites are fully equipped with digital X-ray, ultrasound, in-house lab and laser therapy. We have a mixed caseload and endeavour to provide an exceptional standard of care. Outside of work, we are situated a stones throw from the beautiful Black mountains and Brecon Beacons for those who like to explore and spend time in nature.

The team benefits from a wealth of experience with both medicine and surgery certificate holders. We perform a range of advanced orthopaedic procedures including TPLO’s in house, but have the benefit of a local referral network when required. We have a well-established loyal team ethic ensuring every team member is valued and invested in. You will be supported by a team of 3 other vets, 3 RVNs, 1 SVN and 6 support staff.

Applicant Requirements
