​Having just relocated to bigger premises, a busy independent mixed practice is seeking an additional experienced small animal vet to join their friendly team.

The team of 28 vets are down to earth, friendly and willing to share their wealth of expertise. The practice is fortunate to have a large team of experienced RVN’s and dedicated support staff, all of whom share their passion for providing high standards of veterinary care to their patients. As you would expect, our branches are fully equipped with an extensive range of diagnostic facilities including digital xray, ultrasound and blood machines, along with multiparameter monitoring.

As a practice they strive to combine the provision of exceptional, bespoke care with progressive current best practice in veterinary medicine. Their clinical club meetings are a great way to discuss cases and exchange ideas, and they hold additional in-house CPD days for the whole team to continually improve and advance their standards. Certificates are encouraged as their clients would much prefer an increase in their internal expertise options rather than external referral.

• Full-time

• 4 days per week

• 1 in 5 OOH rota

• Competitive salary

• RCVS fees paid

• Certificates encouraged and funded

• Full VDS cover

• 6 weeks paid holiday (including bank holidays)

• Pension scheme

• Generous CPD allowance

• Staff discount scheme

The practice believes a good work-life balance is essential to maintain the high demands of veterinary life. Though this is a full-time position, they do offer a flexible approach to their working week which could also suit someone seeking part time hours. They take pride in caring for their own patients out of hours on an equally shared 1:5 rota. Inpatients are shared with their nurses and there is always a colleague on standby for help, advice or to simply bounce an idea. Their three-day weekend following on call is popular amongst their team.

If you value clinical discretion, would like to part of a forward-thinking independent practice and work with a fantastic supportive team, then this could be the perfect position for you!

There is an excellent rate on offer here - If you are interested or would like to apply for this position, please submit your CV and Cover Letter to or call Joel Thompson on 0117 329 3900.
