Mixed Veterinary Surgeon - Perthshire - Ref RL14910
JHP Recruitment Ltd
Perthshire, United Kingdom
Our clients have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and capable Veterinary Surgeon to join their wonderful team.
The normal working day varies greatly depending on the workload and the time of the year. All vets work with all species, on the farm side that involves mainly beef cattle and sheep although there is some pig work and occasionally deer work. There is also a steady stream of equine work. So, on some days you might spend all day in the clinic with domestic pets and other days all day on farm and equine calls and very often a mixture of the two. Consulting times are roughly between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. They work a 1 in 5 on call rota so you would work one night in 5 Monday to Thursday and then 1 weekend in 5 Friday night, Saturday and Sunday. The rota is currently arranged so that the vet who works at the weekend gets the following Friday off work.
• Salary dependant on experience circa £35000-£45000
• 5 days a week
• 1 in 5 on call (Monday-Thursday)
• 1 in 5 weekend nights (Friday-Sunday), with following Friday off work
The facilities there include CR x-ray, dental x-ray, ultrasound, therapeutic laser, rigid endoscopy, doppler blood pressure monitor, anaesthetic monitor and an electrosurgery machine. For large animal work they have further ultrasound scanners, bull and tup semen testing equipment and equine dental tools. The DR x-ray system is also useful for x-raying off site.
The ideal candidate will have a number of years mixed practice experience with the confidence to work independently. Any special skills or interests for example in medicine or surgery would be welcomed. The candidate would be expected to take part in the rota which involves farm and equine work.
