The Role

An opportunity has arisen for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our fantastic team. The position can be 100% equine although we would be open to applicants wishing to cover some farm work / TB testing also. The ability to cover some 'fire-brigade' farm work would be beneficial. Our rota encourages a healthy life-work balance with time off after nights and 1:6 weekends on call. 

About Us

We have a diverse team of very experienced vets and ambitious new graduates who provide a wide range of services in farm and equine disciplines. As we continue to grow, there will be huge potential for this role to evolve. We have the benefit of being based in an enviable geographical location of mid-Cornwall, making easy access to great beaches, moors, woods, surfing, sailing and much more.

Applicant Requirements

Applications are encouraged from all levels of experience as well as Vets seeking full/part time hours. You will be RCVS registered with a passion for providing the very best care to our patients and clients who offer a varied caseload of equines to care for. CPD is encouraged and funded and we offer a competitive salary, career development and much more.
