Job Details

The Role

We are undergoing an exciting and much-anticipated expansion and are looking for two Veterinary Surgeons to complement our increased capacity.

We invest heavily in our team’s job satisfaction and work environment, and we protect our work-life balance. We support and stand behind our team in every situation, whether dealing with difficult cases or standing firm with difficult clients.

The rota involves working 40 hours over 4 days per week from 9:00 am-6:30 pm. You would need to work occasional Saturdays from 9:00 am-4:00 pm. There are no OOH as this is now covered by Vets Now. We are willing to discuss special arrangements for working hours and patterns as we know life is never simple!

The salary for this role is up to £55,000 depending on experience.

About Us

We are a thriving practice with an exceptional reputation. We are passionate about staff development and training at every level of the team and invest in all interests.

The site is currently undergoing a state-of-the-art refurbishment and expansion and we are very well equipped with surgical and diagnostic kit. Facilities include: two theatres (with mono and bipolar surgical electrocautery units), double dental suite (with radiography), ECG, ultrasound (with capacity for echocardiography), endoscopes, digital radiography, and a Class IV laser.

A high proportion of our clients seek gold standard treatment, and our caseload is large and varied with many longstanding, loyal clients. Working closely with the Scottish SPCA and other local charities you will also have opportunities to meaningfully contribute to animal welfare through surgeries, consultations, and legal casework.

Our motivated team includes 8 Veterinary Surgeons, 12 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 3 Veterinary Care Assistants, and 9 Support Staff. We have several Vet and Vet Nurse certificate holders and several members of our team undertaking them.
