Driffield, a former market town at the foot of the East Yorkshire Wolds, lies between the historic city of York to the west and the picturesque East Coast sandy beaches.

The right candidate will be an experienced Veterinary Surgeon or Senior Veterinary Surgeon capable of delivering high quality and personable veterinary care but ready to also take the next step into a managerial role. A desire to be involved in the development and growth of the practice is very important. You will need good clinical knowledge and sound judgement and the ability to mentor where required. You will have some sole charge experience and be able to work as part of a team. Although we can offer a fantastic opportunity to an experienced Vet Surgeon ready to take the next step in their career, we would also be open to applications from experienced Clinical Directors too, who are looking for a more relaxed position and an increased clinical caseload, in a small, progressive practice.
