Veterinary Surgeon
Required Experience: 

As a newly graduated veterinary surgeon, you’ll have imagined your first job in a modern and well-equipped independent small animal practice, where you’ll be supported by highly experienced and highly regarded colleagues. A place where your Day 1 skills are developed by an industry-leading New Graduate Programme and where you feel valued and nurtured as an important member of a team delivering the highest quality 24-hour care to sick animals.

You may have imagined that practice to be in a beautiful part of the world, where the standard of living is high, but the cost of living is relatively low. A place where you can enjoy the great outdoors and nature is right on your doorstep, a pretty, small town with pet owners who trust and rely upon you to give the very best of care to their animals.

You’ll also be happy that we run nurse clinics alongside our consults and theatre and that we provide round-the-clock nursing and on-call care for our inpatients and emergencies.

We’ll love your enthusiasm, passion, drive, and ability to work well with a team. We’ll appreciate your thirst for more knowledge and your eagerness to get stuck in. We’ll also be happy if you want to get involved in our training company, CPD Actif, which delivers CPD and winter sports in the French Alps and sailing in Greece in the summer.
