Veterinary Surgeon Required For Maternity Cover At Orwell Veterinary Group In Kesgrave, Suffolk
Orwell Veterinary Group - Grange Farm Vet Hospital
Kesgrave nr Martlesham, Suffolk, United KingdomWe are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to help our team with maternity cover at Orwell Veterinary group. This is in addition to the permanent position we have advertised earlier. The maternity cover is for nine to twelve months starting in March 2021. Our vets work a 4 day week, with 1:3 Saturday shifts, but there are no OOH duties as we are lucky to have Vets Now on site, so our patients and clients enjoy 24 hour care from our hospital, while our vets can still enjoy their down time with all the Suffolk coast has to offer. Both full time and part time applications will be considered. We pride ourselves on working in a supportive environment where colleagues learn from and help each other.
We are a 9 vet team in an RCVS accredited small animal hospital (plus 3 smaller branches). We can offer a generous benefits package plus all the perks of living on the gorgeous Suffolk coast, with beaches and abundant countryside on your doorstep. At Orwell Vets we put clinical excellence and client care at the heart of everything we do, and we are always looking for ways to improve the services we offer to our clients.
We are looking for a hard working vet with strong clinical standards, passion and drive with the ability to motivate and encourage others. The right candidate needs to have routine surgical competence and feel comfortable and confident in carrying out consultations. Competence with sole charge is not essential but would be beneficial for the rare cases it may be needed. The individual needs to be a team player who is looking to work amongst a fun, supportive, experienced and animal loving team.
