Job description

A small Animal practice in Farnborough are recruiting for two Veterinary Surgeons to join their busy friendly team.

This is an established practice which is continuing to grow and due to business demands are now seeking two full time Vets. One of the roles is for a Lead Vet, so if you are a veterinary surgeon looking for the next career step this could be for you. The second role is a full time Vet surgeon position offering plenty of opportunities with CPD support and special interests encouraged, so again a good opportunity for a surgeon who wishes to expand their skill set and knowledge.

Both the positions are full time working 40 hours per week with a weekend rota of 1:3. The weekend does involve sole charge work so it is important that the vet feels comfortable in this area.

The practice has a team of 4 vet, 3 RVNS, SVNS and VCAs along with a supporting team. They have a strong ethos towards personal development so are keen to support areas of special interest.

The practice sees a wide variety of cases each day and they require two confident surgeons who are happy with routine surgical and medical cases. They also need to be competent with sole charge work. The surgeons must work well with others and enjoy establishing working relationships and build their client base.

The practice is modern and spacious, purpose built so fully equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. They have all the mod cons including ECG, Cardiopet, Lactate analyser, ultrasound and digital X-Ray etc. The practice has also recently had a refurbishment making it a lovely place for both patients and fellow members of staff to work in.

Located close to all major transport links and motorways and easy access to London, along with the South Downs National Park on its doorstep this practice offers an excellent opportunity for Vets to enjoy both city and country lifestyle living.
