Ark Vets is a thriving, progressive South Yorkshire/Derbyshire (Sheffield) practice. We are fully kitted-out at both sites with all the usual toys plus laparoscopic surgical kit and CO2 laser. We treat both small animals and exotic species (first opinion and referrals) and we are lucky enough to have the Peak Park on our doorstep, a great place to walk, run, climb, cycle or just enjoy the outdoors.
We have a team of 9 Vets, they are supported by 10 RVNs and our client care team. We support each other and divide the workload equally. Our clients are at the forefront of what we do and we encourage a bond built on mutual trust and respect. This extends into our team too, as we all need each other to function effectively. We believe that time off should be just that, time away from the job to rest and recharge. We seek to balance our responsibilities to our clients with our own work life balance.
We are looking for a Exotic Certificate holding RCVS registered Veterinary Surgeon, who wants to develop and build upon their skills, to join our 3 other Exotic Certified Vets. An additional interest in small animal medicine would be actively encouraged. (Applications from those completing a Exotic Certificate would also be considered). 70% of our vets either hold a certificate or are studying for one. We enjoy a collaborative approach to cases, so you should be happy to take part in clinical case discussions. However, you must be capable of working independently too. Positive energy and exceptional communication skills are essential.
As a BAME and LGBT+ inclusive employer, we are keen to hear from candidates from all minority and diverse groups.
