Job Title: Experienced Equine Vet Opportunity
Region: Yorkshire and Humber
County: North Yorkshire
Profession: Veterinary Surgeon
Start Date: ASAP
End Date: Ongoing
Job Description: An opportunity has arisen for an experienced equine vet to join a mixed practice on the edge of the North York Moors, perfectly situated for exploring the beautiful North Yorkshire coastline, whether that be through walking, surfing, or cycling.
You will be joining a range of experienced colleagues, including certificate holders, previous new graduates and vets that have been with the practice for many years. The practice is very social with a strong, supportive, and welcoming team. Their equine facilities are located at their main site near Guisborough, where they have stables, an examination room, stocks, a knock down box, equine theatre, a trot-up area, and a lunging pen. As well as the usual equipment, they also have equinosis q which we use for all lameness workups.
Recognising the importance of a good work life balance the on-call vet is available from 4pm, to allow everyone else to finish on time. The on-call rota is shared equally and is usually quiet. The work is a mix of ambulatory and in-clinic, working mainly with pleasure horses, but there are also competition horses and some reproductive cases. To improve efficiency and reduce driving time for vets the practice offers area visit days, which are well organized by their team of support colleagues.
There is a strong team ethic in the equine department, with supportive and approachable team members and the opportunity to develop an interest in a particular area.
Working hours are 8:30am-5pm, 4 days per week plus a share of the evening and weekend on-call rota – *part time hours also considered.
Included in the package on offer:
Salary between £35,000 to £55,000 per annum (pro rata)
Generous employee discount
Opportunity to buy and sell holidays
Enhanced paternity, maternity, adoption, shared parental leave and surrogacy pay
RCVS and VDS membership fees
BVA and BEVA membership fees
6.6 weeks including bank holidays
Resettlement package if required
