Blue House Veterinary Centre
Biddulph, Staffordshire, United Kingdom
Veterinary Surgeon needed for award winning, fabulous practice in Biddulph, Staffordshire
All options for hours considered – 5-40 hours a week over 2, 3, 4 or 5 days. No OOH, 1 Saturday in 4 (8am-1pm) – or just all Saturday mornings if you prefer!
Salary £34k-£56k (40hr FTE)
With the pitter patter of tiny, non-furry (probably) feet on the horizon, we are increasing our vet numbers again with a new permanent role at Blue House Vets.
We’ve done away with full time and part time - we have vets, nurses and receptionists who are all equally part of the team, working a varying number of days and hours. Whatever pattern you need, for whatever reason, we can try to work with you.
We value your skills and want to invest in you – if you have a special interest or skill we will help you to develop it. And of course, even if you work less hours, you still need to complete the same amount of CPD, so you will get a full allowance of money to fund it. (Whilst there is a CPD allowance, if it is useful to the practice we are happy to exceed this and can still fund certificates etc).
We value your time - our aim is to finish on time, every time, and on the rare occasion it doesn’t happen or you work into your lunch, we will of course pay you for it or give the time back.
We know most people don’t want to do OOH, night checks, Sundays or bank holidays, so we don’t ask you to. Saturdays are 1 in 4 currently (soon to be 1 in 5) alongside 2 receptionists, a RVN, and one other nursing team member (student, VCA or RVN) and only 8am - 1pm. But if you love Saturdays or it suits you better – let us know!
We think you deserve to have proper breaks - 2 staff rooms, outside staff area, pool table, massage chair, espresso machine, velvetiser hot chocolate machine, toastie maker if you want to stay in the practice on your break - or head out for a walk, cycle or run and you can use the staff shower when you get back!
We think you should be able to love the environment you work in - there aren’t many practices that look and feel like ours 😊. Have a look at our website for more info http://www.bluehousevets.com ">www.bluehousevets.com. Dedicated clinical office, 8 consulting rooms, euthanasia room, cat only waiting and ward (Cat friendly silver status), 2 full theatres plus dental theatre. The environment is planned to emphasise wellbeing of staff and patients – large airy reception, consulting, and operating rooms with natural light throughout.
We think you deserve to be proud of your practice - knowing we provide excellent care, great range and quality of equipment (including slit lamp amongst many others), a knowledgeable team and all for a fair cost to our clients. We were Petplan Practice of the Year 2019, having won 2 previous awards, and our head nurse was also a finalist for Nurse of the Year 2018.
We think you need less stress - a big factor in stress is uncertainty and urgency. By including lots of same day and emergency slots in the diary, we try to ensure there is time to deal with any “extras” that appear.
We think you need time to follow up cases, report results and catch up on your notes. As well as your hour for lunch then is an additional 1hr 40mins of time on the diary each day to make sure you can.
We think you would like to be part of the team - we all work together to get the job done and provide a great service. We are inclusive and supportive - none of us are perfect but we will try to help however we can. If you want to join in on a Go Ape adventure, raise money for charity on a Mud Run, or come out for a meal that’s great – but if you don’t that’s fine too!
But what do you want - what’s important to you? Maybe we could find out together?
Email Kay.email@example.com and we can find out.
