Job Title: Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon - Full or Part Time - up to £65,000
Region: South West
Profession: Veterinary Surgeon
Category: Small Animal
Start Date: ASAP
End Date: Ongoing
Job Description: Exciting opportunity to join a busy small-animal RCVS Nurse Training practice based in Dorchester, supporting the town and the surrounding area in Dorset.
This really is a superb location and a relocation package is available to the right candidate. So there’s no barrier to taking up this great opportunity and making the most of life in Dorset which boasts one of the UK's sunniest and warmest climates. Dorchester is the gateway to the Jurassic Coast which offers Blue Flag beaches, dramatic scenery, rich heritage and a historic harbour as well as some ‘Outstanding’ schools. All this is still under two and a half hours from London, with good road networks and direct rail links.
You will be joining a friendly team that includes one full time vet, one weekend vet (long term locum), two RVNs, one student nurse and three reception colleagues. You’ll work in a modern, air-conditioned and purpose-built practice with state-of-the-art equipment including digital x-ray, portable ultrasound, VetAir dental machine, capnograph & pulse oximetry, Doppler BP, high spec microscope and Idexx in-house laboratory.
If you’re looking for great support, you’ll find it here, with varied CPD on offer to help you quickly build your skills and study for certificates.
Due to a varied caseload, you’ll need solid experience as a vet with good general surgical and medical skills. Whether you join on a full-time or part-time basis, you’ll need to work a weekend rota but this won’t be expected until Spring 2022. There’s no OOH work required either, so the role is particularly supportive when it comes to your work/life balance.
On offer is a competitive salary, generous CPD opportunities and annual leave, a contributory pension scheme, private health insurance, Life Assurance, relocation packages, paid memberships for RCVS, BVA and VDS, plus exclusive company discounts and rewards.
