Vet Surgeon - Peterborough

Up to £80,000 DOE plus £10,000 Recognition Bonus pro rata


Join our Emergency and Critical Care service in Vets Now Peterborough

This is an excellent opportunity for a Vet Surgeon to become part of our welcoming team at Vets Now Peterborough.

This role offers:

  • Up to £80,000 DOE pro rata
  • A very attractive recognition bonus - £10,000 pro rata
  • Up to £5000 relocation allowance
  • First-class benefits and rewards package - including 7 weeks annual leave pro rata that you can use through-out the year, as well as your birthday as a paid day off

Working a fair share of weeknights, weekend days/nights and bank holidays, you will work an average of 3 shifts per week for a full-time 40 hours per week contract.

As with any role within Vets Now we appreciate that one size doesn’t fit all. Finding the right work/life balance for you is our priority, so we are happy to consider this role on part-time basis.


Take control of your own career development

As a Vet Surgeon you will have access to professional qualifications, progression opportunities, coaching and mentoring.
