Christopher Carter Veterinary Surgery

We are looking for an enthusiastic Veterinary Surgeon with an interest in surgery to join our first opinion surgery. The position is available for a full-time member of staff of 40 hours a week, but we would consider a part-time worker or job share, plus approximately one in four Saturday morning surgeries as sole charge. No OOH as the surgery is covered by Vets Now.
We are a close-knit friendly team working out of a single site practice on the outskirts of Southampton. We are on the edge of the New Forest National Park and close to the water sport amenities of the Solent. Our practice was originally set up by Chris Carter in 1982, and we still employ members of his team. Added to these experienced Veterinary Surgeons, we have a supportive team of nurses, most of whom we have trained in the surgery and have remained with us, who work exceptionally well together. The surgery enjoys teaching and sharing new ideas, we have digital radiography, ultrasonography, in house laboratory machines from Idexx, capnography and an E.C.G machine.
We would like a Veterinary Surgeon to fit seamlessly into our busy, friendly team who has a good sense of humour and an excellent work ethic. We encourage and support new ideas and CPD. You will need to be self-motivated with an interest in all aspects of the job and the willingness to support and teach new Graduates surgery skills.
