3 weeks ago
Letchworth Veterinary Centre
Letchworth, Hertfordshire, United KingdomWe are looking for a small animal Veterinary Surgeon to join us at Letchworth Vets and help us to take care of the lovely pets and clients we have on our books. Some clients have been coming to the practice for over 50 years while others first came in lockdown and have not yet seen inside the building - we like to give them all the service they deserve. The role would ideally be full time but part time can definitely be considered. We are very open to considering a flexible rota and can provide a regular half day or full day off. The working day is between 8am and 7pm and there are no out of hours as we are covered by Vets Now. Saturday clinics are worked 1 in 4 (9am - 12pm).
We are a busy first opinion small animal practice serving the pets of Letchworth and the surrounding areas. We are committed to looking after staff, patients and clients to the best of our ability. We are a team of five vets, three of us have been qualified for over ten years so there is a great level of experience. We have five amazing RVNs who keep us functioning and support everything we do. We have an ultrasound machine, digital x-ray, in-house lab, separate theatre and dental rooms, dental x-ray and a tonovet. We are very proud of our quiet, peaceful separate cat ward and are working towards ISFM Cat Friendly status.
Currently we have a strong medical bias in the team so it would be great to develop our surgical offering. Ideally our new vet will love all things surgical and enjoy spending time in theatre! The role also requires time spent in the consulting room so good communication skills and a desire to look after pets and people is essential.
