JHP Recruitment Ltd
West Midlands, United KingdomDue to exciting changes and expansion at our clients surgery, they are looking for a full time GP vet. Experience is preferred, and you should enjoy a mix of consulting, operating and imaging. You will have one day off per week and work a Saturday rota of 1 in 3 Saturdays.
Progression to senior vet/ site lead roles are available with correct experience/training. Salary range £35k to £50k (The higher level will be dependent on a high level of relevant experience/possible cert holder in an area that will enhance services at this branch). As a GP practice they aim to deal with cases ‘in house’ but where advanced imaging (CT), overnight hospitalisation, specialist surgery or just some clinical advice is needed the nearby hospital is there to help.
The practice ethos is to offer the very best in preventative medicine as well as when pets are unwell, but they understand that all clients and their pets have individual needs. They provide a supportive environment where cases can be freely discussed and want to help colleagues develop their clinical skills, no matter what stage they are in their career.
They have a brand-new ultrasound scanner, in-house Idexx blood machine, all pets requiring dentistry have full dental x-rays and they offer laparoscopic surgery. Full X ray facilities are planned for this branch within the next 6 months.
The team generally consists of 2 vets, 2 RVNs, Animal Care Assistant and receptionists but there will be times where you are the sole vet working. RVNs run clinics which include- weight, senior, nail clips, AGs, POCs.
In the air-conditioned consult rooms, they do 15 (some 30 minute) consultations in maximum 2h blocks. Breaks for phone calls, reporting bloods and repeat prescriptions are built into the diary.
They are an organised branch and can offer a well-planned, (largely) predictable working day. The surgery opens at 9am. The last appointment is 6.15pm and the phones go to the nearby hospital from 6.30pm. Whilst of course, this profession requires some flexibility, it is rare that they work much beyond regular finish times. There is no OOH requirement as they have their own separate night team at the hospital.
