​Fantastic Unique Locum Equine Vet Opportunity December - March (SN/15389)

Our client, are an 8-vet mixed practice on the Isle of Man urgently need an equine locum to cover from mid-December until mid-March to allow one of their vets to take a well-earned break and travel home to see their family. They also have a permanent vacancy for an experienced equine vet to join our team.

They need an experienced equine vet who is happy with sole charge and OOH, you will be the lead equine vet. The clinic hours are 8.15am-6.30pm Monday to Friday, but the equine/farm vets will often finish earlier depending on calls booked. They see all the normal ambulatory calls-vaccines/lameness/sick horses. There is minimal reproductive work. You will be required to do week night and weekend on call work for emergencies. However, one of the full-time vets would have the phones and then ring them if help was needed. They have portable ultrasound and an xray machine. They can provide a car and accommodation and would usually pay a retainer for a night on call, and bonus payments if the vet is actually called out.

***The Isle of Man is currently COVID-19 free so we are lucky to be living without any restrictions currently-no 2nd lockdown, no masks, everything open as usual! However, anyone entering the island must self-isolate for 2 weeks on arrival. Therefore, would ideally need someone to come over ASAP to be able to have finished isolating by mid-December***

You will be covering all first opinion duties where required and have experience in all basic surgery and good consulting skills. The practice is offering a competitive daily rate commensurate with experience. The ideal candidate will have at least 1 years UK experience.
