Job Description: We are currently recruiting on behalf of a client who are seeking a fun and caring veterinary surgeon to join their dynamic Gold Standard Rabbit and Cat Clinic and RCVS accredited training practice.
Situated on the South Devon Coast, this location has a lot to offer from surfing on the local outstanding beaches to walks on Dartmoor, socialising on the Barbican, and relaxing on the Hoe. Cornwall is also just a very short drive away.
The practice owner has completed the ESVPS General Practitioner Certificate in Small Animal Surgery, has a Masters in Advanced Clinical Practice and is currently working towards an exotics certificate so with a passion for teaching, this gives you as a solid GP vet the opportunity to further develop your skills surrounded by a supportive team.

Full-time their vets currently work 4 days a week, in addition to a shared weekend rota when the practice opens between 9am and midday on Saturday and 10am and midday on Sunday, for consultations and emergencies only. There are no OOH.
