​An unmissable opportunity has arisen for an associate vet surgeon to join a small animal practice in Northamptonshire.

Vets at this level will be expected to have a greater level of autonomy and responsibility compared to those individuals that have recently graduated.

The list of skills is once again extensive, but the most significant areas are covered below:

• Carry out their work in line with the RCVS guidelines and seek advice from their Clinical Director or the RCVS if they feel these guidelines are being compromised.

• Perform work with a large degree of autonomy seeking advice from more senior staff when required. Once help has been sought, individuals should seek to continue to manage their cases whenever possible.

• Act as an initial ‘go to’ point for more junior colleagues, reception and nursing staff when required

• Continuous development of surgical and medical skills

• Perform sole-charge work and, where appropriate, on-call work

• Report any mistakes or potential problems to a senior member of staff in the unlikely that they occur

• Actively engage with the practice team both within their branch and in other branches and businesses

• Show good communication skills with both staff and clients

Work Pattern: 4 days per week.

Working Time: Mon – Fri 10 hour shifts over 4 days.

Weekend rota: 1:8 Saturday & Sunday 8am – 7pm, plus 1:4 Saturday or Sunday 6-hour shift.

Salary: £33,000 - £40,000pa

Experience Level: Minimum of 1-year UK experience.
