Up to £65,000 (FTE) depending on experience.
Vet On The Hill
Caterham, Surrey, United Kingdom
We are looking for an experienced vet to join our longstanding team.
We are proud of our low staff turnover, which makes this opportunity a rare one. Most of our staff have been with us for 2-5 years, and some from the very day we first opened our doors! We attribute this success to our clear clinical values, investment in staff wellbeing, and flexible work culture.
Our greatest perk is the team you will join. All of our vets are pursuing CPD(s) in areas that interest them individually, and would happily talk to you about what life is like at Vet on the Hill should you wish to learn more first-hand.
If you like the sound of us, we think you should come and meet us.
Our promise to you is an environment where you can safely develop and deliver exceptional care to our patients, with opportunity to both provide and receive lifelong mentorship. Most importantly, we will support a healthy work-life balance, whatever that specifically means for you.
The salary for this role is up to £65,000 (FTE) depending on experience.
We also offer a significant welcome bonus.

We are a thriving, state of the art equipped, modern, single site small animal practice in the lovely town of Caterham. We have close links to the M25, London, and boast the beautiful Surrey Hills on our doorstep.
We understand the importance of nurturing the love for animal welfare that we all share, so we ensure a culture of shared knowledge, bespoke learning, and tailored support. We are really proud of our team and prioritise open communication so that we can deliver on our mission, with integrity and compassion.
