2 weeks ago
Shenley, Hertfordshire, United KingdomThe Role
We are looking for an enthusiastic Veterinary Surgeon to join our team at Wellpet Vets on a one year fixed term contract, with the potential to become a permanent position. The rota is shared with 3 other vets. Typically, either one full or half a day off (on alternating weeks) plus a Friday off one in 4 weeks to have a long weekend. One late start a week (11am), usually 2 or 3 lates (up to 7.30pm), often with a long break in the afternoon before the evening surgery. One in 4 weekends, (10-4pm). No OOH.
We are a really fantastic, very friendly, supportive and upbeat team, with very low staff turnover. We have an excellent local reputation and, generally, our clients are lovely. We have two surgeries, - one in Shenley, (WD7 9DS) in the middle of parkland and one in Edgware (HA8 8JS) on a parade of shops. All our staff are rostered to work at both practices and both are well equipped.
Occasional sole charge will be required for this role, so we need a confident vet who has experience. During the day there will be another vet to refer to and discuss cases with, but evenings and weekends will be solo. Our other vets are all experienced and will offer plenty of support in any areas needed, as will our well qualified nursing staff.
