Robson & Prescott Veterinary Surgeons, Morpeth
Morpeth, Northumberland, United Kingdom
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our team here at Robson & Prescott, Whorral Bank Hospital, in Morpeth.
The position will be split between the main hospital site and one branch surgery. The 4-day week rota is fixed, ensuring continuity to clients and staff. Most working days are between 8.30-6.00 pm.
Any evening shifts will be rewarded with time off during the day. The out of hours work is based at our main hospital in Morpeth. We are staffed 24/7 with nurses on site. OOH shifts include a weeknight every other week and a weekend contribution on a shared rota. The salary for this role is up to £60,000 DOE
Our purpose-built main hospital is based on the outskirts of Morpeth.
We have a lovely facility with a large waiting room, 6 consulting rooms, laboratory, cat, dog, small mammal, and exotics wards. We have 4 operating theatres with radiography, endoscopy, dental and ultrasound suites. We have access to CT imaging and also have an onsite hydrotherapy unit.
Our equine and farm departments are based out of the main hospital making it a busy and sociable workplace. We are supported by a large and dedicated staff of qualified nurses, nursing assistants, receptionists, and a hydro therapist.
We have 7 branches based across Northumberland and we are located about 15 minutes north of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Morpeth is a beautiful market town and the hospital is situated only 10 minutes from beaches, hills, castles, shopping, and nightlife - all of which add to the social lives of our staff and help achieve that all important work life balance. We aim to provide a supportive and progressive working environment to allow the right candidate to excel.
Robson & Prescott employ 25 vets and 22 qualified VNs, all working together to complete our varied caseload. We have certificate holders in exotics, surgery, medicine, cardiology, and behaviour to support and encourage development in the team. The right candidate will benefit greatly from using the supportive and knowledgeable staff, to develop their skill set or add additional breadth to our senior veterinary team. We have our own R&P social group that organises events both for fun, and charity. Our team is very close, and the working day is filled with plenty of laughs and pizza!
We require a small animal vet to join us, and we can accommodate either a senior vet wishing to develop their skill set or a younger vet wishing to benefit from access to experienced, knowledgeable, and supportive vets. You will need to enjoy working as part of a team and also be able to do some branch work as the sole vet, along with support staff.
The benefit of our large team is that we can tailor this role to suit the correct candidate; either consulting based, or surgical roles can be created.
