The Role

We are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon with experience to join our team in our first opinion small animal practice.

The role also involves 1 in 6 Saturday mornings. Salary up to £60,000 depending on experience. We concentrate on a good work life balance for all our employees, and we support all areas of development whether that be career progression or studying for certifications in areas of interest.

In addition, we also have an on-site CT scanner, equipment for laparoscopic surgery and a dedicated dental suite with dental x-rays. One of our vets is currently studying for a certificate in surgery and we also have a certificate holder in ophthalmology and medicine.
