We are looking for a mixed veterinary surgeon to join our friendly and supportive team of 17 vets at Donald S McGregor and Partners Ltd in the Scottish Highlands. We are an independent, genuinely mixed practice (50:50 SA:LA). Recent graduates or experienced vets are welcome to apply. The practice is the home of the popular TV series ‘The Highland Vet’.
We require someone with an enthusiasm for mixed practice, although particular interests can be pursued. A typical day starts with a cup of tea and team meeting at 8:45am and when not on call you will normally be finished by 5:30pm. The shared out of hours rota is currently 1:4 with days off in lieu. New graduates can expect to be well supported by senior colleagues.
Our practices are well equipped, including:
- Farm animal – rectal scanners, hydraulic foot tipping crate, EEJ for bull/tup testing. We also have vets who are trained to carry out PMs at the local SRUC facility.
- Equine – Repro/Tendon scanner, portable x-ray, power float for dentals.
- Small animal – CR x-ray, ultrasound, dental x-ray with table-side processor, in-house blood machines, range of ortho equipment including TPLO kit.
Even though the pace of life is more laid back in the north of Scotland there is still plenty to enjoy in your free time. There are numerous sporting clubs, fitness facilities and outdoor activities available in the area. For the more relaxed among us, there are beautiful beaches to walk the dog on, the northern lights, a variety of wildlife, as well as excellent cafes/restaurants.
Competitive salary commensurate with experience. 29 days holiday each year. CPD encouraged and usual subscriptions paid. Accommodation and vehicle can be provided. You are more than welcome to discuss the role with one of our more recently qualified assistants.
