Job description

We are recruiting for a permanent Veterinary Surgeon to join an independent small animal practice in Worcester.

About the role

They are looking for an enthusiastic veterinary surgeon with excellent communication skills. The practice is able to accept applications from newly graduated veterinary surgeons as support is available. However, the role does involve sole charge work so for an experienced veterinary surgeon it is important that they are confident in this area. There is plenty of scope for the veterinary surgeon to develop their surgical skills and they welcome vets with areas of special interest as it offers great opportunities in soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery, small animal medicine and also alternative therapies.
