Ark Veterinary Centre
Colchester, Essex, United Kingdom
We are seeking a Veterinary Surgeon to join our team at Ark Veterinary Centre. This role is suited to a small animal Veterinary Surgeon that is confident in surgery, diagnostics, and consulting. The shift pattern currently consists of 4 weekdays and one Saturday in 4 (only until 12 noon) with no OOH. We can offer great flexibility within this role for the right candidate with the potential of a permanent contract once complete.
The salary for this role is up to £65,000 pro rata for full-time.
Ark Veterinary Centre is situated in Colchester which has just been awarded city status. We are only an hour away from London, 45 minutes from Stansted airport and on the doorstep of the coast and the Suffolk countryside so life outside of work can be enjoyed to the full!
The practice is a lovely mid-sized family feel practice. We are small enough for the team to all know each other well but large enough to offer enough support for everyone. We also have the added benefit of frequent visiting specialists in orthopaedics and cardiology allowing for great case continuity.
We have all the normal gadgets such as digital x-ray, ultrasound, in house blood machines and a lovely new dental machine.
About the Team and Culture
The practice consists of 4 Vets, 4 RVNs, 2 VCAs and 5 support staff including a wonderful practice manager. It is important that the candidate enjoys being part of a proactive team that strives for clinical excellence.
We have a supportive and nurturing culture but still manage to maintain a good sense of humour, making it a happy and settled place to work even with the stresses and strains of small animal practice.
We can offer great flexibility to achieve work life balance and we do finish on time!
The ideal candidate would be confident in surgery, diagnostics and consulting but more importantly would appreciate working in a close-knit team.
The candidate should enjoy clinical challenges, but with the support and friendship that the team provides.
