We are looking for a veterinary surgeon to join our client’s hardworking team in Norfolk. Ideally you will have some experience, so someone who may have been looking to move from their first practice since graduating or someone who is looking to expand their experience of small animal practice to include leadership.

  • Flexible rota
  • The salary is up to £63,000 depending on experience

About The Role

A standard working day for our client’s vets starts at 8.30am and finishes at 6.30pm with the majority of the team working four days a week with a fixed day off.

There are different shift patterns, which are shared equally among the team:

  • 9am – 12pm consults then 2pm – 3pm / 4pm – 5.45pm
  • 9am – 12pm consults then 4pm – 5.45pm
  • 8.30am – 4pm in theatre (you dictate your breaks) then consult 4pm – 5.45pm.

There will be a share of 1:6 Saturday mornings which consists of consulting 9am – 12pm, if any inpatients require to be cared for over the weekend the vet is responsible for transferring these to the out of hours provider after consults, although this happens infrequently. Our client has outsourced out of hours however alongside the nursing team there is some inpatient cover Monday to Friday.

The diary is a mixture of operating and consulting time at their main branch with a couple of half days between 9am – 11am or 2pm – 6pm consulting at our smaller branch. This is sole charge consulting only. Admin time is provided between consulting.

About The Practice

Our client’s vets have a range of experience from 3 years up to 25 post qualification. They consider themselves to have a well-equipped surgery with the usual range of diagnostic equipment including dedicated imaging room. There are separate wards for cats and dogs to ensure minimal stress for pets staying with them. For large dogs, they have several large ‘walk in’ kennels so all pets can be comfortable.
