West Yorkshire, United Kingdom

Our clients are looking for a lovely Veterinary Surgeon to join them for a period of maternity cover, with the possibility of a more permanent post. A normal day in the life would consist of a good mixture of consult and surgery work depending on the rota for that day. They would try to incorporate operating time each day particularly if the Vet Surgeon was to be on a later finish with evening consultations. There would be client calls and some telephone consultations and of course reporting on any in patient that vet surgeon was responsible for. They are a busy Practice but try to have breaks during the working day particularly if on a later finish.

Rota is averaged out over 6-week rotation
• Weekdays start at 9:00am
• 2 days finish after evening consults at 8:00pm
• 1 day finishes after afternoon consults at 4:00pm
• 1 day finishes at 1:00pm
• 1 day finishes at approx. 3pm
• One week in 6 is a bonus week, with 2 days off and then 2pm start for 3 days with 8pm finish

Weekend work
• 2 out of 6 weekends (consisting of 2 Saturdays full day and one Sunday 10am to 12 midday)
• No OOHs as we use OOH service provider

You will join an enthusiastic team which consists of 7 Veterinary Surgeons with varying amounts of experience, led and fully supported by the Clinical Director. They are supported by 7 caring nursing staff and a great team of permanent and part time reception staff overseen by the Practice Manager. They have a culture of consideration and kindness in the practice toward the patients but also to staff members. The main aim with patients is always to provide the highest-level clinical care they can, regardless of whether the client is insured or has less to spend in these challenging times.

There is a possibility that the position may lead to a more permanent role in the future for the right candidate. They are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon with some previous experience ideally in a similar small animal practice setting. Confidence and proficiency in performing routine operations comfortably including caesarean section would be desirable. However, if necessary, they could accommodate a Veterinary Surgeon looking to gain further experience in these areas and would be happy to offer support if needed for performing surgery and handling medicine cases. A most important attribute would be the ability to get on well in a team and with their valued clients.
