We have an exciting opportunity for a full time Veterinary Surgeon to join our team. A part time candidate would also be considered. You will work alongside our friendly team of vets, nurses and receptionists, sharing in the consulting and operating rota. All vets have a good and equal amount of time in theatre weekly. The role consists of a 4 day working week and 1:5 - 1:6 participation in the OOH weekend rota, plus one night duty per week. Weekends on call are rewarded with a subsequent 3 day weekend.
