SA Experienced Vet
Due to an increase in our client base, we now have immediate opportunities for experienced and ambitious Small Animal Vet(s) to join our friendly team of 18 Small Animal Vets, 15 RVNs, 5 Student Nurses and 4 Care Assistants. We understand the need for a balance between work and home and consider applications for any part or full-time working pattern. The roles can be permanent or interim locum opportunities, as we are currently free of some IR35 legislation.

The role requires work on-site at our busy Hospital in Hook Norton and occasional sole charge at Branch, with realistic 15-minute consults. Client care is paramount to us, which is why we have a dedicated in-house Night Team. Weekend consult shifts and weekend OOH are negotiable, and accommodation is available if needed.

We allow complete clinical freedom to manage and work up cases with support and training if needed. Mentoring is offered via designated internal staff and complemented with a career pathway designed to support your long-term aspirations. The Small Animal Vet Team, including all the Vets, Nurses and Receptionists, are fully committed to providing the very best care. You will find our ethos is to support each other fully until each case is complete.

The ideal candidate must have a minimum of 2 years of UK experience in a similar job role, hold a valid UK driving licence, and be a team player with high clinical aspirations.

We offer a competitive salary and all your standard benefits, plus more unusual ones. We like to work hard and play harder!
