Job Title: Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon - Full and Part Time

Region: Yorkshire and Humber

County: West Yorkshire

Profession: Veterinary Surgeon

Category: Small Animal

Position: Permanent

Start Date: ASAP

End Date: Ongoing

Job Description: Due to one of their full time colleagues relocating to pursue further specialisation and the fact that they are growing, our client, a small animal practice in a market town in the City of Leeds Borough has opportunities for both a full and part time vet.

This is a forward-thinking practice where everyone strives to deliver gold standard patient and client care, with the wellbeing of colleagues being just as important. Their full-time vets (average 40h/week) have a fixed day and a half off, with a 1:3 or 1:4 weekend rota when we up to full staffing level. There is no OOH requirement, and sole charge only on weekends or the very occasional afternoon. They operate a zero-tolerance policy against rude and abusive clients, although they do not have to implement it very often, as their clients are mostly very nice (but they do, if necessary).

The practice is fully equipped with Idexx in house lab, Sevoflurane, digital x-ray including dental x-ray- which is used on every dental patient, and ultrasound and they practice evidence-based medicine. A standard appointment is 15 minutes long, and double that for 1st vaccinations, blood tests and euthanasia’s.

The boss is a surgery certificate holder, and there is visiting specialist for ultrasound and cardiology, so they do not have to refer very much- The ability to work up your cases to a high standard is what is offered and expected.

Both vacancies would suit someone with at least 2 years’ experience; the candidates should be comfortable with routine operations and the occasional sole charge, although they can offer a consulting only role for the part time vacancy if so desired.

The package on offer includes:
A competitive salary which is dependent on your level of experience and additional qualifications
A generous CPD allowance with certificates happily funded
Generous holiday allowance with an added day off for your birthday
Staff discounts for pets
